Anticellulite  topical   gel   preparation   with   caffeine   as   active   ingredient   needs a  penetration enhancer to reach subcutaneous layer.  Sodium hyaluronate (NaHA),   the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid, is a hydrophilic  polysaccharide  derivative  polymer. It has  ability  to  enhance  percutaneous  penetration  by  loosening  the  dense  of the compact substance stratum corneum.  The  aim  of  this  research  was  to  observe the effects of NaHA on caffeine penetration as  anticellulite  active  agent  in  three types of gel preparation: hydrogel,  hydroalcoholic  gel,  and  gel  emulsion.  Each gel type contained caffeine  1,5% and was varied into three formulas. Formula      1 contained HPMC 2% as gel basis; formula 2 contained HPMC 2% and NaHA 0,5%; formula 3 contained NaHA 2% as gel basis. Caffeine penetration properties were analyzed by Franz diffusion cell in vitro test using rat skin as membrane. Percent caffeine penetration of hydrogel formula 1, 2, 3 were 9,41 ± 0,01%; 11,74 ± 0,13%; 16,32 ± 0,03%, respectively. Percent caffeine penetration of hydroalcoholic gel formula 1, 2, 3 were 19,54 ± 0,02%; 22,99 ± 0,23%; 7,42 ± 0,08%, respectively. Percent caffeine penetration of gel emulsion formula 1, 2, 3 were 10,47 ± 0,19%; 13,41 ± 0,12%; 18,42 ± 0,06%, respectively. The result showed that NaHA enhanced the caffeine percutaneous penetration properties in various gel preparations, except hidroalkoholic gel formula 3.
