Our surfactants can be used in pharmaceutical products due to their strict adherence to the highest safety standards. We also develop DDS (Drug Delivery System) technology, provide ingredients to improve the solubility of hard-to-dissolve active ingredients and offer consultation to solve various problems related to the formulation and production of modern pharmaceutical products.
Pharmaceutical Surfactants
Increase the transdermal absorption and solubility of pharmaceutical agents, as well as increasing the hydrophilicity of oil bases used in ointments and patches.


■Oral Applications
Dispersants, lubricants, binders, diluents, disintegrant agents, coating agents for pills, along with other emulsifiers and solubilizers used for capsules, emulsions, and other liquids forms.


Solubilizers used to dissolve herbal medicinal materials, Vitamin E, and other oil ingredients.

NIKKOL Decaglyn 1-L, NIKKOL Decaglyn 1-SV, NIKKOL Decaglyn 5-SV

■Rectovaginal & Urethral
Surfactants increase the rate of percutaneous absorption and increase the solubility of medicinal materials in oil- & fat-based materials. We also supply surfactants to emulsify and solubilize water-soluble bases, and disperse, dissolve, or accelerate the absorption of other medicinal agents.

NIKKOL DID, NIKKOL Sefsol-218, NIKKOL Sefsol-228

■Acrylic Polymers for Pharma & Medical Devices
Shape-forming, moisture retentivity, and imparting agents.


In the competitive food industry, we endeavor to develop an attractive variety of functional, value-added ingredients with a high priority given to safety and preservability. We offer a technological edge to customers who wish to add novelty to their products, particularly with product textures.
