Adipic acid, also known as hexanedioic acid, is produced from a mixture of cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone with air or nitric acid. In medicine, Adipic Acid has been incorporated into controlled-release formulation matrix tablets to obtain pH-independent release for both weakly basic and weakly acidic drugs.

Citric acid is a natural preservative which is present in citrus fruits. In the pharmaceutical industry, citric acid is widely used as a flavoring and stabilizing agent in pharmaceutical preparations. It is used to enhance fruit flavors and to import a desirable tart taste that helps mask medicinal flavors. Citric acid is used in syrups, elixirs, or combined with bicarbonates or carbonates in antacids and dentifrices. The effervescence effect improves palatability and can greatly improve the solubility of co-constituents. Citric acid helps maintain stability of the active ingredients by buffering aqueous solutions, sequestering trace metals and assisting in the dispersion of suspensions.

Also known as Potassium Bitartrate or Potassium Acid Tartrate; Cream of Tartar is a white crystal or powder and a byproduct of the winemaking process as it forms inside wine barrels during fermentation. It comes from tartaric acid, a naturally occurring substance in grapes and some other tart fruits. In the pharmaceutical industry, cream of tartar is used as a diuretic and a laxative besides being used extensively in the manufacture of toothpaste.

Also known as Vitamin B12, Cyanocobalamin is a man-made form of vitamin B12 used to prevent and treat low blood levels of this vitamin, which can lead to health conditions such as low red blood cells (anemia) stomach/intestine problems and the permanent nerve damage. All vitamin B12 compounds contain the cobalt atom in its trivalent state. There are at least three active forms: cyanocobalamin, hydroxocobalamin and nitro cobalamin. Vitamin B12 is a component of a coenzyme which takes part in the shift of carboxyl groups within molecules. As such it has an influence on nucleic acid syntheses, fat metabolism, conversion of carbohydrate to fat and metabolism of glycine, serine, methionine and chlorine. The cobalt gives this water-soluble vitamin its red color.

Propylene glycol supports many uses such as connecting and stabilizing insoluble fluids (emulsifier), attracts, holds water and moisture, helps to bind and transport other substances (excipient), reduces the freezing point/increases the boiling point and offers outstanding stability with high flash and point points. Propylene Glycol's main function in pharmaceuticals is to dissolve the active medicines and provide equal distribution of the medicine ingredient in the formulation, so that each pill, liquid dose or cream-based application always contains the exactly prescribed amount of curing agent. Propylene glycol is used in therapeutic drugs and medicines, such as vaccines or cough syrup, vitamins and hormones, antiseptics and local anesthetics. Applications in cosmetics and toiletries include bath and shower soaps, gels face cleansers, deodorants, lipsticks, fragrances, moisturizers, shampoos, conditioners, sunscreen products, mouthwashes, toothpaste and antiseptics.
