Koster Keunen manufactures a full line of waxes which are tested to the strict standards of the Ph. Eur, National Formulary (NF), and USP
Ph. Eur. stands for European Pharmacopoeia, which is a Legislation, drawn up by the Council of Europe, setting authority for pharmaceutical products and other healthcare products manufactured or sold in Europe.
USP stands for United States Pharmacopeia, which is a non-governmental, official public standards setting authority for prescription and OTC medicines and other healthcare products manufactured or sold in the United States.
Our Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical waxes include Beeswax, Carnauba, Candelilla, Paraffin and Microcrystalline Wax. The waxes have applications in semisolid preparations like ointments, creams or lotions, gel capsules and suppositories.
Because of their lipophilic properties, waxes find numerous applications in other formulations as well.
