Technology of S. TAC

S.TAC EX NEO and S. TAC IBU TT adopt SSP’s unique “quick action” technology. We succeeded in stabilizing the OTC drug by storing the antipyretic analgesic ingredient, ibuprofen, and the gastric mucosal protection ingredient, magnesium oxide, which often trigger changes when combined, in a swellable polymer mesh that reduces mutual contact. As a result, ibuprofen is dissolved quickly, and absorption into the body is promoted.
