BIOPOL® – Benzene Free Carbomer
The BIOPOL ® carbomer family is synthesized without Benzene – a substance that is increasingly restricted for use in pharmaceutical excipient applications, as well as is harmful for topical applications on repeated use. Exposure to benzene is harmful and can cause neurological symptoms and damage to the
immune system. It is a known human carcinogen and is linked to an increased risk of developing various types of cancers.
Instead of benzene, our entire range of carbomers are synthesized in Methylene Chloride within the range of Pharmacopoeia, and we maintain it much below the maximum allowed limit for higher safety levels. Our carbomers meet the highest safety standards. Biopol is manufactured at our state-of-the-art ISO certified plant in Italy, Europe and is a pharmacopeial compliant product – USP/ EP, making it suitable for all applications.
