CAPMUL® MONO AND DIGLYCERIDES

Where Formulations Begins™

Capmul products are mono- and diglyceride emulsifiers prepared by glycerolysis of particular fats, oils and fractionated vegetable oil fatty acids.  They also can be prepared by esterification of glycerin or propylene glycol with selected vegetable oil fatty acids.

Capmul is used as a carrier in lipid-based drug delivery systems for liquid or semi-solid formulations.

Functionalities Include:

  • Bioavailability enhancer
  • Solubilizer
  • Emulsifier/co-emulsifier
  • Plasticizer
  • Carrier (vehicle)
  • Employment through SEDDS - self emulsifying drug delivery systems

Dosage Forms Include:

  • Oral
  • Topical 
  • Transdermal
  • Parenteral
  • Ophthalmic

Specific Use of Capmul for Drug Delivery Formulations:

  • Efficient in the solubilization or dispersion of active substances and polar lipids
  • Is an emulsifier or co-emulusifier of choice in the preparation of stable, self-emulsifying lipid-based microemulsions
  • Can be used as a plasticizer in aqueous and solvent based polymeric coatings
  • Effective in self-emulsifying drug delivery systems (SEDDS) when incorporated as a low HLB water-in-oil (w/o) emulsifier or co-emulsifier
