These bases are modified by altered monoglyceride content and / or the inclusion of additives such as phospholipids, beeswax and polyoxylethylene (POE) sorbitan esters. They have been developed to provide solutions for more challenging formulation and manufacturing situations.
A phospholipid additive facilitates dispersion and homogenous drug distribution throughout the suppository unit. Suitable for formulations using large amounts of powder API
A non-ionic emulsifying additive enables the incorporation of API in aqueous solutions and/or hydro-alcoholic extracts and prevents the exudation of API in solution.
S and S2 Grade
Bases with a modified monoglyceride content and/or addition of specific ingredients.
Products with a higher monoglyceride content provide increased hydrophilicity, improving the wettability of active ingredients. Appropriate when fast drug release is required.
