Product Portfolio Minerals as Excipients


The major component of ingredients in pharmaceutical products in terms of volume is not the active ingredient itself, it is the excipient. Excipients assist in the administration of an ‘active’ substance that typically may not be easily administered or absorbed by the patient.

Mineral Salts as excipients are of specific importance, since they largely determine the structure of solid dosage forms and stabilize the chemical properties in liquid pharmaceutical forms.

Excipients have well-defined functions, which significantly influence the processability, stability and control the release of the drug product.

Therefore, the selection of excipients is crucial to ensure that the drug substance is stable and has desired pharmacokinetic properties, adhering to strict standards and regulations.
