Description

POLIkol 1000PF belongs to the polyoxyethylene glycol group. These product is available in white solid, waxy form. It is characterised by a wide spectrum of applicable properties, mainly excellent softening, lubricating, solubilising, and wetting abilities. Also as a humectant it is responsible to keep an moisture of final formulation.

POLIkol 1000PF meets the restricted quality parameters defined by the Pharmacy Code, collected and published in the latest edition of European Pharmacopoeia. Thanks to which it may be classified to the group of Macrogols . Macrogols are a pharmacopoeial name for polyethylene glycols which are used as one of additives for medicines, ointments, dermocosmetics or other pharmaceutical formulations.

Typically, macrogols of a high molecular weight are present in combination with lower molecular weight macrogols. Therefore, high molecular weight polyethylene glycols, which are in the waxy form, are combined with liquid low molecular weight polyethylene glycols and a result, the blend is of a greasy consistency.

POLIkol 1000PF is recommended as a base for ointment due to its excellent dispersing properties in order to make proper solution of active ingredients and assure good water solubility. Moreover, due to its high molecular weight, POLIkol 1000PF can be added to the formulation in order to increase viscosity.

Moreover, macrogols are safe, non-toxic, and are characterised by a lack of negative environmental classification.
