Cannabis

Formulating with Cannabis can be very challenging especially when exploring new and unique dosage forms.  ABITEC's functional lipids could help aid in the solubilization, emulsification, and delivery of your cannabis actives in a variety of applications.

Lipid Delivery Systems for CBD

Lipid-based delivery is an effective method for incorporating insoluble actives in a variety of dosage forms by carrying the active in an oil in water emulsion

ABITEC’s portfolio includes:

  • Solubilizers
  • Emulsifiers
  • Surfactants
  • Penetration Enhancers
  • Emollients
  • Viscosity modifiers
  • Skin conditioning

A typical LBD system will consist of a solubilizer, an emulsifier, and a surfactant and/or co-surfactant. For the nutritional space, ABITEC supplies a portfolio to support these formulations:

  • CAPTEX® - Solubilizers
  • CAPMUL® and CAPROL® - Emulsifiers
  • ACCONON® Surfactants
