General description

Finding the right excipient that matches your needs as well as regulatory demands can be a complicated challenge in formulation. With our application know-how and regulatory expertise, we support you in every step of development, scale-up, and production.
As part of our Emprove® Program, our raw materials are offered with extensive documentation facilitating compliance of your pharma and biopharma product, full supply chain transparency and risk mitigation. Our SAFC® portfolio of high-quality products for biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical formulation and production withstands strict quality control procedures and is produced according to applicable cGMP guidelines.

Application

Benzyl alcohol is typically used as a preservative in liquid formulations and is active against bacteria, yeast and mould. It can also serve as a solvent for poorly soluble drugs.

Benzyl Alcohol Emprove® Expert is an extraordinarily pure product with impurity specification thresholds even below current requirements of designated pharmacopoeias (e.g. benzaldehyde content < 0.05 %). Therefore, this product is especially suitable for high-risk applications or any other purpose that requires superior quality.
