Excipients are used to add consistency and texture to tablets, pills, or any carrier of an active pharmaceutical ingredient.
As a supplier of excipients, Parchem is the premier distributor for raw material manufacturers requiring excipients for vitamin production and tableting. Many vitamins and nutritional ingredients often require an excipient to act as a natural delivery system to the body. Parchem is proud to supply high quality excipients to numerous end-users for their pharmaceutical, vitamin, and nutritional tableting needs.
Using an excipient as a carrier for the active ingredient in a nutritional or pharmaceutical product is a technique used by all the top vitamin and pharmaceutical manufacturers in today’s marketplace. Parchem is a recognized distributor for stearyl alcohols and food colors which act as excipients for topical ointments and cream formulations. These components contribute to the overall attractiveness and ease of use for finished products on the market today.
Parchem also specializes in supplying various excipients and thickening agents such as microcrystalline cellulose and sodium carboxymethylcellulose. These materials act as binders, fillers, and glues for nutrients in tablets and they are also suitable for use in beverages as additives for superior texture and mouth-feel. Excipients supplied by Parchem also serve to keep the active ingredient in its active state, thereby prolonging its utility and shelf-life of the product.
