  • Patent number: 4572915
    Abstract: Micellized aqueous formulations for fat soluble vitamins, essential nutrients, herb oils and pharmaceutical agents are obtained by a process wherein the fat soluble vitamin, essential nutrient or agent is first admixed with a suitable amount of polyethoxylated castor oil and a pharmaceutically acceptable polyol, such as glycerol to provide a non-aqueous phase. Thereafter, an aqueous phase containing mostly water and optionally a preservative, such as sodium benzoate, is slowly added to the agitated non-aqueous phase in such a manner that the temperature of the non-aqueous phase, including the aqueous phase added thereto, is maintained at an elevated temperature, preferably between approximately to C. After cooling, the final admixture is clear, homogeneous, having micelles of approximately 2 microns or smaller size.
