Formulation improves the properties of many products
The process of designing how a pharmaceutical is administering to the patient – as a tablet, liquid or capsule – is called formulation. A formulated product consists of a minimum of two ingredients selected, processed and combined in a specific manner to provide the product with special characteristics. Formulation is vital to the usability of the product. The field is principally applied in the pharmaceuticals sector, although it also has applications in the foods, medical technology, cosmetics/hygiene, personal care and chemical industries.
