Excipients for Drug Formulation

Lipophilic Fills

Highly functional lipophilic fills and surfactants to be used in multitude of softgel applications including self-emulsifying systems, suspensions and solutions.

In the pharmaceutical industry, poorly water soluble APIs have become an issue. Many of the drug companies look to softgel drug delivery systems to provide a solution for these APIs. BASF provides lipophilic solvents such as Kollisolv® MCT 70 and corn oil for drug solubilization. For more challenging APIs, self-emulsifying drug delivery systems provide a solution for enhanced bioavailability. We also have a range of products for these self-emulsifying systems, such as base oils, lipophilic and hydrophilic surfactants and also solvents for comprehensive solution to this pervasive problem. Our lipophilic fills have high purity to ensure long term stability and performance.
