They have also been used to thicken the continuous phase of an oil-in-water emulsion system. A mucilage of starch has been used for its emollient effects on the skin and other mucilages have been used as water-miscible bases for dermatological preparations and as lubricating agents for catheters and some surgical instruments. Since mucilages are prone to decomposition they should not be made in quantities greater than required. g. belladonna, hemlock, henbane, lemon, broom, dandelion). Oxymel is the term applied to purified honey (Mel Depuratum) to which acetic acid has been added.

Where the juices of fresh plants were obtained by expression and evaporation, the resultant extracts were frequently termed succi spissati (inspissated juices). Extracts were intended to contain the active principles of crude drugs while minimising the amount of inert matter present. In general, extracts contained a higher proportion of active drug principles than equivalent infusions, decoctions or tinctures. The most common extracts encountered were either solid or liquid extracts. Dry extracts replaced soft extracts as the solid extract of choice as these could be standardised, they varied less in strength and were generally easier to handle.

Glycogelatin bougies had to be protected from excessively dry or moist air by storing in a tightly closed container in a cool place in order to maintain their integrity. 5 g. They were usually prepared using a glyco-gelatin base as this was more suitable for the medicaments that were to be incorporated into the product. 25 cm in length and weighed between 250 and 400 mg. References disagree on the common base used for aural bougies. g. Cooper and Gunn, 1950) suggest the use of glyco-gelatin bases.
