BASF offers a variety of hard fats, waxy solids, PEGs and poloxamers ideal for use as matrix builder and structurants in suppository formulations.
Suppositories: Matrix builders
Matrix builders are the materials that create the solid state that gives the suppository the solidity that allows it to be handled prior to application. Depending on the type of suppository, matrix builders can be added to fluid oils or water, in order to build up the hardness. BASF offers numerous materials to make oil-based or water-based suppositories.
