SPI Pharma, Inc. (Wilmington, DE), a global leader in providing pharmaceutical ingredients and technologies for patient-friendly dosage forms, announces the launch of Actimask® Ibuprofen 92S, a taste-masked Ibuprofen. It joins Actimask Acetaminophen 92M in SPI's line of taste-masked actives specifically designed for making patient-friendly orally dispersible dosage forms economically in conventional equipment.
Actimask Ibuprofen 92S is manufactured via a 100% aqueous hydrogel coating system that provides excellent taste-masking and rapid dissolution without the concern of residual solvents. The coating is readily wettable, while effectively masking unpleasant taste and preventing the characteristic "burning" sensation many patients experience with some Ibuprofen products. The wetting characteristics and a small particle size give Actimask both the smooth mouth feel and the superior organoleptic properties that are essential to formulating superior dispersible dosage forms.
