1. 6. 2009 - Micronization at Favea, spol. s r.o.

At the beginning there was a claim made by a renowned cosmetic company, to eradicate the sharp edges of pigments for decorative cosmetics for which the skin of a female body is very sensitive, and at the same time there was the possibility to use smaller quantities of pigments while achieving enhanced colour. (By the way, you know that a woman consumes in a lifetime, an average of 2 to 5 kg of lipstick?)

mikron1After completion of a line and micronization on an industrial scale, we realized that even the lining of the gastrointestinal tract is very sensitive, and it was worth trying to micronize the initially sharp edged large crystals (acetylsalicylic acid, salicylic acid and others) into smaller and almost spherical particles. Higher bioavailability is not only achieved, but here are significantly fewer adverse effects after drug administration.

Favea company has already micronized several dozen tons of active substances and most of them were exported abroad. Therefore, it may well happen that your doctor prescribes an imported drug, which contains the active substance micronized by our company in Kopřivnice.

From this perspective, the random change of drugs with the same active drug substance in a pharmacy is not so straightforward and individual generics may vary one from another. Physicians and patients prefer those that are not only effective but also have fewer side effects.

Innovatively, micronization while drying, apart from the very low moisture content, achieves a better uniformity in the distribution of particles. This project should prepare the active substance, which after administration (tablets) immediately disintegrates in the mouth and is absorbed through the oral mucosa. The effect is very fast and the patient does not have to wait tens of minutes or even hours until the effect occurs.
