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.
In 1843 the Englishman William Brockedon (1787 - 1854) applied for a patent for the tablet and caused “one of the most tremendous upheavals that the pharmacists have ever experienced”. Thereby active ingredients can be precisely dosed and are very stable, the taking is convenient, the production cheap and they are easy to transport. As a result, tablets occupy a special position today with a share of almost 50% among the drug forms.
Where synthetic materials are used in the right place – for example, as films for greenhouses and other land used for agricultural purposes – uneconomic, dry areas can be utilised for agriculture and crop yields optimised despite unfavourable climatic conditions. SOFTENOL® 3190, a product of IOI Oleo GmbH’s Technical Applications Business Unit, improves the efficiency of greenhouses in this special field of application and protects the plants in them at the same time.
IOI Oleo GmbH is one of the leading European suppliers of oleochemical specialties for almost all areas of daily life. Top quality is our credo! It is not only reflected in the product but is the essence of our holistic approach. Of course, we monitor the entire manufacturing process and test our products in compliance with the strictest requirements at various stages of the process. Thus, we have equipped our plant in Wittenberge with a so-called CI analyzer. We already analyse the raw materials and can guarantee the highest quality.
