Polymorphism in Lipids: Influence and Control in Pharmaceutical Applications

By |20. October 2023|Pharma|

Polymorphism is a fundamental phenomenon observed in lipid materials, encompassing a diverse group of biomolecules such as fats, oils, and phospholipids. This phenomenon refers to the ability of lipids to exist in multiple structurally distinct states of crystallinity. Polymorphism in lipid materials has significant implications, e.g. in pharmaceutical and industrial applications. Controlling lipid polymorphism can be of paramount importance in the development of lipid-based drug delivery systems.

Sensorially appealing, sustainable and regulatory compliant formulation ensures the success of topical applications

By |7. August 2023|Pharma|

The topical therapy approach is the first choice for skin diseases. However, in order to ensure the intended therapeutic success, the patient’s cooperation is indispensable - especially in the case of chronic diseases. A pleasant skin feeling is the prerequisite for enabling the patient to use creams or ointments in compliance with the prescription. The combination of uncompromisingly high quality and pleasant skin feeling is therefore of decisive importance for the Pharma business unit of IOI Oleo GmbH.

Peroxide value as a further indicator of the shelf life of lipid excipients

By |10. May 2023|Pharma|

IOI Oleo GmbH enjoys an excellent reputation worldwide as a manufacturer of high-quality, lipid-based additives. In order to ensure that we maintain our standards for the highest quality and to comply with the guideline values of national and international pharmacopoeias, we attach great importance to the selection of the raw materials and suppliers we use as well as state-of-the-art production processes at our locations in Germany. In this context, the peroxide value (PV) can be used as a key indicator of the rancidity of lipids and is used by pharmaceutical companies as an indicator of the quality of their excipients.

Acid value as a central, objective quality factor for lipid excipients

By |16. January 2023|Pharma|

The selection and qualification of a manufacturer of excipients and active ingredients is one of the main tasks of quality management, which aims, among other things, to ensure the manufacture of effective and safe pharmaceuticals. In this context, monographs serve as a guide to evaluate raw materials regarding their physico-chemical properties and also help to compare different sources of the "supposedly" same raw material.
