  • Hypromellose (INN), short for hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), is a semisynthetic, inert, viscoelastic polymer used as an ophthalmic lubricant, as well as an excipient and controlled-delivery component in oral medicaments, found in a variety of commercial products.
  • As a food additive, hypromellose is an emulsifier, thickening and suspending agent, and an alternative to animal gelatin.
  • It is also used in ophthalmic solutions and as a slow release agent.
  • It is widely used in personal care products as a thickening agent and foam stablizer.
  • Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is manufactured from high purity cellulose in compliance with GMP and HACCP.
  • In codes and regulations this product is also known as HPMC, E464 or modified cellulose.
  • Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, belongs to the group, medicines known as artificial tears, relieve dryness and irritation caused by reduced tear flow.
  • It helps prevent damage to the eye in certain eye diseases, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose may also be, moisten hard contact lenses and artificial eyes, can be used in certain eye examinations.
  • Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is available, following dosage form ophthalmic, ophthalmic solution, eye drops, before using this medicine, without a prescription, carefully read and follow any precautions on the label.
