An effective superdisintegrant

Disolcel® CCS (Croscarmellose Sodium) is an internally cross-linked Carboxymethylcellulose Sodium, and it is essentially water-insoluble, yet rapidly swelling and absorbing many times its weight in water. As a result, it provides superior tablet disintegration and aids in dissolution of the active ingredient, thus ensuring the bioavailability of the drug/supplement.

Disolcel® possesses consistent disintegrative functionality due to above mentioned properties, which contribute to the low use level for having the excellent disintegration and dissolution.


  • Rapid disintegration
  • Aid in dissolution
  • Ensuring the bioavailability of active ingredient
  • No effect on the compressibility and flowability
  • Cost-effective at low use level

Non-GMO Verified

Aside from our standard grade, a non-GMO (GF) grade is also available for customers concerned with genetic engineering and genetically-modified foods.

Disolcel® GF grade manufactured from Carboxymethylcellulose Sodium derived from wood pulps. This ingredient is exempt from EU regulations requiring the GMO labeling of food from or containing ingredients from GMO.
