Solutions For Suppositories

Suppositories are the ideal dosage form for rectal and vaginal applications.

In addition to providing fast absorption through the colonic or vaginal mucosal membranes, suppositories also bypass the first pass effect to improve drug bioavailability.

To allow for proper administration and drug delivery, suppositories require careful consideration of the following parameters: hardness, shape, drug solubilization, and melting range.

Formulate an array of suppositories with our wide selection of matrix builders, solvents, and emulsifiers.
