Novata® (Hard Fats)

The best option for suppository masses or solid compositions

Novata® is a line of four hard fat products that are a mixture of 1, 2 and 3 fatty acid chains bonded to a glycerol molecule through an ester linkage. The material is supplied as white to almost white brittle waxy pellets. Novata® grade material may be utilized as a matrix for suppositories, and to dissolve active ingredients and other excipients in a greasy or waxy base. Our Novata® products offer a variety of typical melting point ranges: Novata® B 33.5° C, Novata® BC 33.0 – 34.5° C, and Novata® BCF 35 - 37° C.

Apart from suppository manufacturing, solid triglycerides (hard fats) are used as carriers in inlets, ointments and creams and in dental products. In topical formulations they can act as a sensory enhancer, because of their low melting point. Our Novata® products can also be used as matrix and viscosity enhancers for capsule fills in soft gels.

Why use Novata®?

  • Offers a range of melting points and properties for formulating flexibility
  • Can be added to oil phases to modify the emollient or sensory properties of topical semi-solid emulsions
  • Best option for suppository masses or solid compositions
