AKVANO in BOV is the powerful combination of topical medication and product delivery.

AKVANO consists of lipid components which are dissolved in a volatile, water-free solvent mixture. When this formulation is applied onto the skin, the solvent evaporates and a lipid layer is formed in an immediate interaction with the skin surface, fundamentally different from traditional formats of ointments and creams.

Bag-on-valve is already known for its many brand, manufacturer, consumer and environmental benefits. However, the bag-on-valve experience is only as good as the product that goes in the can. By combining the superior formulation of Lipidor's AKVANO topical delivery, companies are able to stand out from their competitors with a truly innovative and effective product.
