Pharmaceutical Bentonite


Pharmaceutical Bentonite

Bentonite, a natural clay mineral, finds several applications in the pharmaceutical industry due to its unique properties and versatile nature.


  • Excipient in Tablets and Capsules: Bentonite is commonly used as an excipient in tablet and capsule formulations. It serves as a binder, disintegrant, and filler, helping to improve the flowability of powders, enhance tablet hardness, and promote rapid disintegration and dissolution of tablets and capsules in the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Suspension and Emulsion Stabilizer: Bentonite is used as a suspending agent and emulsion stabilizer in liquid pharmaceutical formulations such as suspensions, emulsions, and lotions. It helps prevent settling of solid particles and ensures uniform distribution of active ingredients in liquid formulations, enhancing their stability and shelf life.
  • Topical Preparations: Bentonite is incorporated into topical formulations such as creams, gels, and ointments for its soothing and skin-protective properties. It helps provide a barrier on the skin surface, absorbing excess moisture and toxins, and promoting wound healing and skin regeneration. Bentonite-based topical preparations are used for various dermatological conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, and acne.
  • Gastrointestinal Disorders: Bentonite is used in the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders such as diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It acts as an adsorbent, binding to toxins, bacteria, and other harmful substances in the gastrointestinal tract and aiding in their removal from the body.
  • Dermal Patches and Bandages: Bentonite is utilized in the manufacturing of dermal patches and bandages for its moisture-absorbing and wound-healing properties. It helps create a protective barrier over wounds, absorbing excess exudate and promoting a moist wound environment conducive to healing.
  • Oral Care Products: Bentonite is found in oral care products such as toothpaste and mouthwash for its cleansing and polishing properties. It helps remove plaque, tartar, and surface stains from teeth, promoting oral hygiene and maintaining oral health.
  • Antacid Formulations: Bentonite is used as an active ingredient in antacid formulations for the relief of heartburn, acid indigestion, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It acts as a buffering agent, neutralizing excess stomach acid and providing rapid relief from symptoms of acidity and reflux.
