Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) stands as a cornerstone in pharmaceutical and cosmetic formulations, revolutionizing tableting with its unique compressibility and binding capabilities. This pristine white powder embodies exceptional qualities, serving as an exemplary excipient for solid dosage forms. Its ability to compact effortlessly under minimal compression pressures while ensuring high binding capacity results in tablets that are not only remarkably hard and stable but also disintegrate rapidly, promoting efficient drug release. With additional advantages like low friability, inherent lubricity, and unparalleled dilution potential among binders, MCC emerges as a pivotal filler and binder in formulations prepared through direct compression or wet/dry granulation methods.
