Tackling the formulator information challenge

Developing innovative products – including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, agrochemicals, and consumer goods – hinges upon the formulating process. Formulating can make or break a product: they must be safe, functional, stable, and usable, with the right combination and amounts of active ingredients and excipients to achieve effectiveness and meet regulatory requirements while maximizing commercial success. Despite the undeniable importance of formulations, gathering and accessing the information needed to create them can be hugely challenging and inefficient. This takes valuable time away from innovation and can cause significant delays in products being developed and released to market.
