Vaginal Suppository Manufacturing, Rectal Suppository Manufacturing
We offer Vaginal Suppositories manufacturing and Rectal suppositories manufacturing in different sizes and shapes. Typically they are in 1g, 2g or 4g sizes. The shape and size of the suppository depend on the size of the recipient – 1g for infants, 2g for children and 4g for adults being a general rule. Suppository base should melt at temperatures above normal room temperature, but below body temperature. This gives us a narrow band between roughly 30 and 35 degrees Celsius for the melting point of the soppository base.
When oral administration of a drug is not suitable as in infants or patients suffering from nausea, vomiting, and gastrointestinal disturbances, suppositories serve as an alternate for drug administration. They have been used for a variety of conditions like hemorrhoids and local infections in vagina and rectum.
Cosmetic vaginal suppositories are great for cleansing, deodorizing, and external moisturizing. They can help support balance, promote freshness and protect against feminine odor.
Suppositories have also been used for prolongation of drug action. Absorption of drugs from rectal mucosa directly into the venous circulation may bring about a faster onset of action as compared to oral administration.
