MeliLax Suppositories are biodegradable and do not contain any synthetic, semi-synthetic, or genetically modified substances.

For MeliLax Suppositories, Aboca research developed a technology that allows cocoa butter, honey and beeswax, which normally melt at different temperatures, to be formulated and processed so that the product melts at body temperature, without the use of any surfactants or emulsifiers.

The presence of a light white patina and/or minor imperfections on the surface of the suppository can be attributed to the composition of the product, and are not detrimental to its quality.
