Sorbitol Sorbitan Solution USP/NF, EP

Polysorb 85/70/00 is an aqueous solution containing a defined mixture of D-sorbitol and 1,4-sorbitan. This clear, colourless, syrupy liquid is perfectly miscible with water but practically insoluble in oils and has been developed particularly as an additive for soft gelatin capsules.

The advantage of this product in soft gels relates to its remarkable, balanced plasticizer properties without ‘surface’ crystallization i.e. graining, as is the case with standard crystallizing plasticizers and without the leaching phenomena in the filler media of the soft gels.
