VITAMIN D3 STABILIZED
STABICOAT® Vitamin D3 Stabilized is stabilized form of Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol). Vitamin D3 is extremely unstable and deteriorates readily when exposed to light and air. Therefore, storage and handling of Vitamin D3 is extremely difficult. Its exposure to other ingredients and atmosphere during formulation process deteriorates it and potency of Vitamin D3 goes down abysmally low even after adding almost double the required quantity.
Moreover, Vitamin D3 is required in very small amount, which leads to problem of homogeneity or even distribution of Vitamin D3 in the whole mass.
Our STABICOAT® Vitamin D3 Stabilized is used for achieving even dispersion and stability of Cholecalciferol during handling and in formulations; resulting in reduced overages and yet ensuring label claimed potency up to the shelf life.
