EZ MELTS ® Oral Disintegrating Tablets
SOLARA LABS created the technology behind EZ MELTS®, a line of Rapid Oral Disintegrating Tablets (ODTs) that serve the nutraceutical marketplace. EZ MELTS® dissolve or disintegrate in the mouth very quickly, and do not require water to aid the swallowing process. This revolutionary and innovative technology makes taking medication and nutritional supplements easier, not only for children and the elderly, but also for people who have difficulties swallowing conventional tablets. ODT/Fast Melting Tablets are sometimes referred to as Quick Dissolve Tablets, Mouth Dissolving Tablets, Rapid Disintegrating Tablets or Orodisperse tablets.
Capsules and Tablets
SOLARA LABS can help you design and private label your nutraceutical products using the traditional capsule, tablet and “caplet” formats. We can formulate a large variety of dietary supplements, vitamins and nutraceuticals for private label production. We can provide quality sources for nearly any ingredient your private label product may require, maintain confidentiality and follow very strict standards of manufacturing quality. Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.
Our chewable tablet technology (Smooth Chews™) produces pleasant-tasting tablets designed to disintegrate smoothly in the mouth with or without chewing. Our chewable tablets have a slightly longer disintegration times than our ODTs (EZ MELTS®), with the same smooth mouth feel and availability for absorption. Along with our taste masking capabilities, this delivery technology can help with the administration of large tablets to children and adults who have difficulty swallowing whole tablets or other traditional solid dosage forms.
Controlled Release Tablets
SOLARA LABS has developed a wide range of formulation techniques that can modulate and sustain the delivery of the components from the nutraceutical dosage form. Formation of soluble, erodible and insoluble matrices has been designed to release the nutrients in a predetermined manner over an extended and/or controlled period from the dosage form. Certain microencapsulation techniques are also available to achieve a desired release or taste masking rate profile. This latest technique has been frequently utilized to mask the taste of quite bitter substances. There are many types of Controlled Release formulations that Solara has developed, including Sustained Release (where the active component is delivered over a specific period of time, Modulated Release (where the active components can be delivered over different periods of time, Immediate Release (where the active components are released almost immediately upon swallowing, and Delayed Release (where the release of the active components are delayed).
Fast Melting Crystals / Granules
SOLARA LABS can formulate your nutritional supplements and vitamins in crystal / granule form. This unique delivery technology allows the agglomerated particle to rapidly dissolve in the mouth to deliver nutrients in the oral cavity. These crystals do not need to be dissolved in a glass of water, and are poured directly in the mouth and dissolve almost immediately in a variety of delicious flavor profiles.
SOLARA LABS’ lineup of private label nutraceutical delivery formats includes lozenges. Lozenges are usually solid tablets that dissolve at a slow controlled rate and/or can be sucked in the mouth. In this type of composition the active ingredients will reside and be exposed in the oral cavity for a predetermined period of time. This delivery technology is frequently used for cold and throat OTC preparations, but it can be used in a variety of nutraceutical applications where a more local or sustained effect is required. When combined with our comprehensive range of custom formulation and taste masking capabilities, it can result in a highly differentiated product.
Our private label of Mini-Tablets are uncoated tablets designed to gradually dissolve when placed in the mouth. At SOLARA LABS, we manufacture a wide array of water and fat-soluble vitamins and nutritional supplements as mini-tablets, which can be placed in the oral cavity, where they can slowly erode or dissolve promptly with a pleasant taste and creamy feeling. An ideal balance between disintegration with residence time in the oral cavity can be achieved based on the customer requirements to maximize the effect and smoothness of the formula.
