Compressible Powdered Oils
Pharmako’s Compressible Powdered Oils (CPOs) are an innovative material development which allows oily active ingredients to be included in tablet and powder formulations without leaching oil.
Overcoming the challenges of micro encapsulated oil.
Often formulations are limited by the challenges of tabletting with standard micro-encapsulated oils, which struggle with leaching, mottling, sticking and picking. Ingredient combinations are also often limited to their original diverse forms. Also, interactions amongst ingredients can often limit their usage together.
Pharmako’s CPO technology performance and formulation advantage.
Pharmako’s CPO technology allows oily active ingredients to become compressible powders suitable for tableting and ready-to-mix formulations. They offer better shelf stability than oils, with less sensitivity to air and oxidation and without an after taste or reflux – especially important when dealing with strong tasting or fishy actives.
Pharmako’s CPO formulations are optimised for stability and loading.
They have high oil capacity with a loading of up to 70% oil, and they
display good dissolution properties.
Pharmako CPO formulations can be customised:
• to optimise diverse active ingredient(s).
• for customer requirements.
• for regulatory frameworks.
• for dosage format(s).
Pharmako CPO formulations are approved and may be used in multiple product sectors and applications including:
• dietary supplements,
• food and beverage
Pharmako CPOs can be customised for oil ingredients such as:
• fish/marine oils,
• lavender oil
• CBD oil
• citrus oils.
Shelf life and stability.
Oils compressed with Pharmako’s CPO technology often increase stability and shelf life.
Pharmako CPOs are made in Australia from pharmacopoeial grade ingredients, under cGMP standards.
