BASF creates chemistry for a sustainable future offering intelligent solutions to the pharmaceutical industry. With our expertise in polymer chemistry, R&D-capabilities, and commitment to developing excipients, BASF creates solutions for Instant & Modified Release, Solubilization, Softgels, Skin Delivery, and Biologic applications. We also are a leading supplier of selected APIs, such as ibuprofen and omega-3. Our team of experienced industry specialists are here to support you in developing effective, reliable solutions to the formulation challenges you face today and tomorrow.

It is often the simple solution that sorts out a complex problem. At BASF, we know that innovation, speed-to-market, and cost-effectiveness are crucial to pharmaceutical companies. With expertise across the entire pharmaceutical value chain, we deliver on all three accounts, from lab to launch.

Equipped with an in-depth understanding of multiple industries, technologies, and applications, we have the skills and resources to make drug manufacturing more efficient, robust, and cost-effective. Whether you want to make your medicine more effective, safer, or more patient-friendly, we will help you find the solution to your formulation challenges.

Our Instant & Modified release solutions offer an unprecedented range of functionality, which means we can help you formulate pharmaceuticals with the exact release properties you desire. This ensures the precision you need every time.

Our Skin Delivery platform provides a portfolio of excipients spanning a wide range of solubility parameters for use in semi-solids, gels, liquids, and transdermal patches to increase drug penetration through the skin. What’s more, our excipients are proven to be mild and non-irritating in highly sensitive clinical studies.

Our Softgel portfolio offers leading-edge functional excipients to help achieve the best possible results for each element of a softgel – whether coating, shell, or fill. Moreover, all ingredients have been tested according to the highest quality standards to minimize the possibility of crosslinking.

We offer a comprehensive range of cutting-edge Solubilization polymers, and have an unparalleled understanding of the corresponding process technologies. This unique combination means that we can make sure you achieve effective solubilization across a range of dosage forms – particularly in solid dispersions. And because we are a pioneer in the application of hot-melt extrusion technology in pharmaceutical production, we can help you combine effectiveness with cost efficiency.

With over 50 years of experience in EO/PO chemistry, the anchor of our Biologics platform is Kolliphor P 188 Bio, specifically designed to meet the stringent requirements of biologics manufacturers for purity, consistency and performance in protecting cells from shear stress in mammalian cell culture systems.
