(25% podophyllin in benzoin tincture)
Podocon-25® is composed of Podophyllin (Podophyllum Resin, American) 25% in Benzoin Tincture. Podophyllum Resin is the powdered mixture of resins removed from the May apple or Mandrake (Podophyllum peltatum Linne'), a perennial plant of northern and middle United States(1). The podophyllin resin used in this product is exclusively the American podophyllin (rather than the Indian resin). American podophyllin typically has a reduced level of podophyllotoxin (see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY section).
