Hard fat suppository base with modified monoglyceride content providing hydrophilic properties. Confers high mechanical resistance and yields harder suppository or pessary units.
Suppository bases, hard fat
Consists of mono-, di- and triglyceride esters of fatty acids (C10 to C18), the triester fraction being predominant
Base recrystallizes rapidly and produces harder suppository units with high mechanical resistance.
Used as pessary base for numerous APIs.
