In addition to their well-known rectal or vaginal routes of administration, WITEPSOL® hard fats are also suitable as structure formers in emulsions or as a fat component in wound tissues. WITEPSOL® hard fats without additives are GRAS substances (Generally Recognized As Safe) and are regarded as a Cocoa Butter Substitute (CBS) acc. to CRF §172.861.
As they exhibit a neutral odour and taste, WITEPSOL® hard fats can also be used for the production of chewing tablets or as a capsule filling mass, among other uses.
