Excipients for Drug Formulation

Kolliphor® SLS Fine

A widely used ionic solubilizer and high HLB anionic emulsifier that is suitable for application in liquid dispersions, solutions, emulsions and micro-emulsions to formulate tablets, foams and semi-solids such as creams, lotions and gels. Particularily suitable for direct compression.

Kolliphor® SLS, is manufactured by sulfation of the corresponding fatty alcohol of natural origin and subsequent neutralization with sodium hydroxide. The excipient is characterized by a very high active substance matter and a very low content of inorganic salts and unsulfated fatty alcohols. Kolliphor® SLS Fine is extremely efficient throughout the tabletting process by assisting in drug dissolution and aiding water uptake during disintegration of the end formulation.

Why use Kolliphor® SLS?

  • Extremely efficient excipient throughout the tabletting process
  • Finer particles for more controlled and efficient solubilization
  • Widely used ionic solubilizer and high HLB anionic emulsifier
  • Additionally suitable as wetting agent or lubricant
  • Suitable for solid, semi-solid dosage forms and foams
  • Particularily suitable for direct compression

Multiple functionalities for solid and semi-solid dosage forms
