Maximize the success of your tablet dosage form with an expert in advanced excipients

Did you know that two-thirds of all medications are oral solid dosage forms – and about 50% of these are tablets? IFF’s Pharma Solutions is a pioneer in excipients, and today, one in three tablets contain our ingredients.

Although they might look simple, tablets are complex pharmaceutical formulations requiring quality excipient solutions to support a number of functionalities, including powder flowability, binding, compaction, lubrication, anti-adherence, disintegration and dissolution. Our extensive family of advanced excipient ingredients can provide all of these attributes, and more. As the first manufacturer to develop cutting-edge excipient solutions for tablet formats, we’ve got the deep expertise and decades of experience needed to guarantee success in tablet innovations, every time.

We can help you choose the best excipient for your API, tablet type, desired release profile and manufacturing process.
