Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API)

These purified pharmaceutical oils (olive and soybean) are used as API for the manufacture of nutritional lipid emulsion products in parenteral nutrition. They provide a source of calories and essential fatty acids for patients who are not able to feed themselves.


These highly purified oils can be used as excipients in both human health (propofol, hormones, vitamins) and animal health applications (veterinary uses).

They are useful in the formulations of soft gels capsules, as solubilizer for APIs insoluble in water (cyclosporin, dronabinol, cannabidiol, etc.) and as texturizers. They can also be used in various syrups and lotions.
