A common way to improve the solubility of active ingredients is to formulate them in liquid form, as solutions, emulsions, suspensions, and gels. Whether the final formulation is taken directly, or encapsulated into a gelatin capsule, our solubilization technologies enable enhanced delivery of challenging active ingredients. Although each approach has its differences, they all share the need for functional excipients. BASF offers a comprehensive range of trusted functional excipients to make them work.
