Supplying a Healthier World: Oleochemical Use in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Oleochemical Use

For the pharmaceutical industry, oleochemicals like fatty alcohols, fatty acids and glycerin are typically used as excipients in various medicines and personal care products. 

The Role of Excipients

Medicinal tablets and capsules contain excipients, which are inert substances used in formulations that can perform several roles, depending on the product. 

Typically, they help transport the active ingredient to the location in the body where the medicine is needed. They can also protect, support or enhance the product’s stability, bioavailability and in some cases, flavor. Excipients may also assist in maintaining product safety during storage, transport or personal use. 

In any capacity, the excipient function is an important one. This means the quality of each oleochemical that forms the excipients is equally critical.
