Pyrogenic silica is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry as carrier of active substances and anti-caking agent for bulk materials used in the manufacturing of medical tablets and pills.

When used in medicine, the crucial fact is, that that all the substances adsorbed on its surface, such as drugs, are gradually released in the aqueous medium of the human body, providing for a sustained action and thereby increasing the effectiveness of drugs.

As additives in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products, the pyrogenic silica of grades FUMISIL200, FUMISIL300, and FUMISIL380 is typically used in concentrations from 0.1% to 30%.
