In November, the CPHI 2022 in Frankfurt, the leading trade fair for the pharmaceutical industry, finally ended our long absence from trade fairs. We were all very excited to finally see our customers, business partners and friends again, resume personal discussions and make new contacts. One topic was especially important to us: Sustainability. And we were particularly proud of an innovation with a great deal of potential.
Finally, the time has come! We will be live at the CPHI Worldwide with a booth. We had to wait until today to present our new trade fair appearance to you and are all the more pleased to welcome you from November 1st to 3rd, 2022 in Frankfurt. Because nothing can replace face-to-face contact.
We associate summer with light clothing, a good mood and balmy, carefree evenings. However, the beautiful season can be demanding for our skin as high temperatures, salt water, chlorinated water and high UV radiation all have an effect on it. Therefore, special care of the skin during the summer is recommended. Our products SOFTISAN® 649 and SOFTISAN® conditionHAIR are ideal companions for the time in the sun (and of course also before and after).
Topical uses of our specialty products are a pivotal component of our daily aspiration at IOI Oleo GmbH. The business units Pharma and Personal care have common history and share products and expertise to help customers developing high quality, sensorially appealing formulations.
It's no secret that the important ozone layer is constantly getting thinner and the protection against harmful UV radiation decreases as a result. Protecting our skin is therefore more important than ever in order to prevent the risk of skin cancer. In addition to the right clothing, primarily sunscreen lotions with a high sun protection factor provide protection. The formulation of these sun creams is primarily characterized by the use of chemical and synthetic ingredients. With MIGLYOL® 8810 ECO, however, we give your formulation a real ECO boost!
Making a virtue of necessity – dealing with supply chain issues in the Technical Applications business unit
The Corona pandemic has led to diverse business constraints all around the globe. Not only have costs of logistics, raw materials and packaging material increased extremely but also the availabilities of such decreased rapidly. Freight costs from Asia to Europe have multiplied, creating a huge challenge especially for materials from the Far East. Vessels or containers are often blocked in harbours due to lockdowns or sick crews. Harvests were partially lower during the pandemic, also related to lockdown situations.
Improving bioavailability is a key challenge for formulators during development especially with poorly water-soluble drugs. It is a constant struggle in the pharma world to enable a satisfying drug dissolution profile using such APIs. The functional lipid IMWITOR® 742 can help overcome this challenge.
The use of cosmetics should be an experience thanks to an exciting texture and pleasant sensory properties. In the jungle of raw materials, it is up to the formulator to combine the right ingredients, such as actives, fragrances, emollients and oils. One important constituent with an elementary role that ensures versatility and stability is a must: the emulsifier!
According to a conservative estimate, approximately 1,000,000,000 (1 billion) individual patient doses are manufactured annually with our WITEPSOL® products for the application area of pain and fever management. This not only makes us proud, but also underlines our position as a global benchmark.
With sales of around $27 billion in 2019, capsules are the second most popular dosage form after tablets. Experts predict annual growth of 9%, which means that the capsule could already reach a market volume of $54 billion by 2027. Its popularity is easy to explain, as it offers numerous advantages. In combination with the product portfolio of the Pharma business unit of IOI Oleo GmbH, further benefits can be generated.
