Excipient: Super Refined™ DEGEE

Product description

Super Refined DEGEE is ideal for use in topical and transdermal applications to enhance the permeation of poorly water-soluble API’s through various layers of the skin, thereby improving drug delivery. It can also be used as a co-solvent in self-emulsifying drug delivery systems (SEDDS), or self-microemulsifying drug delivery systems (SMEDDS), to stabilise poorly water-soluble API’s in oral formulations, which can lead to an improvement in the delivery and bioavailability of the SEDDS or SMEDDS system.
