Semi-solid preparations

Semi-solid preparations are used to deliver medicines, medical products or cosmetic products via the skin or mucous membranes.

We develop and manufacture semi-solid medicines, medical products and cosmetic products for internal or external use:

  • Products for external use are absorbed through the skin and often used to treat various skin diseases. Such products are usually manufactured in a non-sterile environment.
  • Some products for internal use are manufactured in a sterile or aseptic environment to minimise the risk of infection. These include eye gels and vaginal gels.

In manufacture, we can use either known and established bases as the starting point, or develop entirely new preparations. We can develop and manufacture the following semi-solid preparations:

  • Salves
  • Creams
  • Gels
  • Lotions
  • Suppositories
  • Vagitories

The semi-solid preparations are usually filled in commonly used packaging materials, such as plastic or glass bottles, pump jars, or plastic, aluminium or laminate tubes.
