Hard fat suppository base with high crystallization rate. Confers high mechanical resistance and yields harder suppository units.
Suppository bases, hard fat
Consists of mono-, di- and triglyceride esters of fatty acids (C10 to C18), the triester fraction being predominant
33.5 – 35.5
5 – 15
Base recrystallizes rapidly and produces harder suppository units with high mechanical resistance.
