Super Refined™ GMCC

Add to favourites
Super Refined™ GMCC is a high purity mixture of monoglycerides and diglycerides of caprylic and capric acids. It is used to produce stable emulsions and to modify viscosity. It functions as a skin-conditioning agent/emollient, a surfactant/emulsifying agent, as well as a penetration enhancing agent. Additionally, it can also be used as a primary or secondary surfactant or a carrier oil in the formation of self emulsifying drug delivery systems (SEDDS) or self microemulsifying drug delivery systems (SEDDS), which can help to improve oral bioavailability for poorly water-soluble active pharmaceutical ingredients (API). Super Refined™ GMCC also has a very low impurity profile, which ultimately improves its shelf life over competitor products. This includes reductions in problematic impurities like aldehydes, acids, and free polyethylene glycol.
