Kolliphor® HS 15

The potent nonionic solubilizer

Kolliphor® HS 15 is a potent non-ionic solubilizer and emulsifying agent, with low toxicity. Ideal for solubilizing low-solubility actives in microemulsions, it helps tackle even the toughest solubilization challenges. It is used for manufacturing aqueous parenteral preparations with vitamins A, D, E and K, plus lipophilic APIs such as propanidid, miconazole, alfadolone, alfaxalone, nifedipine, and piroxicam. Kolliphor® HS 15 is soluble in water, ethanol, and 2-propanol. As a solubilizer, it is particularly suitable for parenteral and oral dosage forms, and lends itself well to veterinary formulations.

Why choose Kolliphor® HS 15?

  • IID-listed excipient
  • Low histamine release for fewer side-effects
  • Thermal stability
  • Monographed in Ph. Eur. and USP-NF
