Recommended Uses & Known Applications
  • LIPOXOL MED grades are widely used excipients in a variety of pharmaceutical preparations. The liquid LIPOXOL MED grades are used as solvent, solubilizer and viscosity regulator in liquid pharmaceutical formulations. Mixtures of liquid and solid LIPOXOL MED grades are used as ointment bases. Solid LIPOXOL MED grades are used as suppository bases and act as binders and plasticizers for tablets.
  • The liquid LIPOXOL MED grades are readily soluble in water and miscible in all portions with other grades. With increasing molecular weight the solubility in water is slightly lowered. The LIPOXOL MED grades are (according to their molecular weight) soluble in polar organic solvents like alcohols, benzene, glycerine glycol and chloroform. No or slight solubility is given in aliphatic hydrocarbons, ethers and fats. LIPOXOL MED grades can be used to enhance the aqueous solubility or dissolution characteristics of poorly soluble compounds.
  • Due to their hygroscopicity the LIPOXOL MED grades are used as moisturizers which provide soft and readily dispersible ointment bases causing a liquid flow opposed to the resorption. On skin they show a cleansing and drying effect. Therefore LIPOXOL MED containing ointments can be used to treat wet and inflamed wounds.
  • Liquid LIPOXOL MED grades are used as water miscible solvents dedicated for dissolution of actives in soft gelatine capsules. Aqueous solutions of LIPOXOL MED grades can be either used as suspending agents or to adjust the viscosity and consistency of pharmaceutical products.
  • In solid dosage forms LIPOXOL 3350 MED, 4000 MED, 6000 MED and 8000 MED enhance the effectiveness of tablet binders and provide plasticity to granules. There are a number of techniques producing tablets containing LIPOXOL MED grades. When used for thermoplastic granulation a mixture of powdered components with 10-15 % LIPOXOL 6000 MED is heated to 70-75°C resulting in a paste. Whilst cooling and stirring granules are formed. Solid LIPOXOL MED grades can be used for film coating of tablets or as polishing or softener materials for film tablets.

Statements and Confirmations

California Prop. 65 list

LIPOXOL MED grades contains the following chemicals found on the California Proposition 65 list of chemicals published by the Governor of California:

  • 1,4-Dioxane (max. 1 mg/kg)  
  • Ethylene oxide (max. 1 mg/kg)
  • Formaldehyde (max. 30 mg/kg)
  • Ethylene glycol (max. 620 mg/kg)

Cosmetic

Assuming the use of the raw materials and manufacturing process currently employed the LIPOXOL MED grades fulfils the requirements regarding the annexes of the regulation No. (EC) 1223/2009 with the exception of very small amounts of free Ethylene oxide (≤ 1 ppm), Formaldehyde (≤ 30 ppm) and 1,4-Dioxane (≤ 1 ppm) which are characteristic for this type of product.

With regard to the Diethylene glycol content which is limited to max. 0.1% for the ready to use cosmetic product (Annex III) please consider the Diethylene glycol content of the relevant LIPOXOL MED type (exception for LIPOXOL 300 MED).

CMR

We hereby confirm that, to the best of our present knowledge, assuming the use of the raw materials and manufacturing process currently employed, LIPOXOL MED does not contain any CMR-substances classified as CMR category 1A, 1B an 2 in accordance with regulation No. (EC) 1272/2008 and its adaptations, with the exception of very small amounts of free Ethylene oxide (≤ 1 ppm), Formaldehyde (≤ 30 ppm) and 1,4-Dioxane (≤ 1 ppm) which are characteristic for this type of product.

Food additive (E 1521)

LIPOXOL 400 MED, 3000 MED, 3350 MED, 4000 MED, 6000 MED and 8000 MED are approved for the use as food additives (E 1521) acc. to regulation No. (EC) 231/2012.
