Olive oil is commonly known for its use in the food industry, whether as a cooking oil or a seasoning oil on a day-to-day basis.
However, did you know that olive oil, once refined, is also used in the pharmaceutical industry?
At ADM-SIO, we produce highly purified olive oil. It complies with European and US Pharmacopoeia monograph for refined olive oil. The production and quality control system fulfill the ICH-Q7 GMP requirements for active pharmaceutical ingredients. For this product, a certificate of suitability (CEP) has been delivered by the EDQM in Europe and a DMF Type IV will be submitted to the FDA this year in the US. A 9-step purification process is applied to the starting material (virgin olive oil) to deliver a high quality purified oil. Final steps of the process, including fine filtration and drum filling under nitrogen are performed in an ISO 8 classified cleanroom.
The high purity, strict quality and compliance with GMP requirements, make our pharmaceutical olive oil fully suitable for use in injectable applications (as API or excipient) and also for oral or topical formulations.
