What is pharmaceutical alcohol?

Pharmaceutical alcohol or ethanol is a very pure form of alcohol that is used to produce medicinal drugs, disinfectants and homeopathic products. For this reason, pharma grade alcohol has to meet the most rigorous standards. At Nedstar, we only supply the highest quality ethanol to the pharmaceutical industry. Our products are processed according to the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and comply with all relevant standards, including the British, US, Japanese and European pharmacopeia (EP/BP/USP/JP).

Uses of ethanol in the pharmaceutical industry

Ethanol is most commonly used in the pharmaceutical industry as a preservative and solvent. Additionally, alcohol can enhance the absorption of ointments and gels, and has sedative, cooling, antipyretic and disinfectant qualities. These pharmacological characteristics of ethanol are however strongly dependent on the concentration of the product. As well as medicines, pharmaceutical alcohol is also used for the production of antiseptics, anesthetics, cosmetics and personal hygiene products.
