Cork, Ireland, 17th October 2023 –  C2 PHARMA, the global leader in manufacturing and supplying ophthalmic and niche active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) globally, is expanding their global access to their portfolio of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) with new regulatory submissions and approvals.

“As we deepen our involvement in the Ophthalmic sector, our ability to successfully submit and secure numerous regulatory filings worldwide will enable us to better serve a truly global customer base in need of high-quality APIs.” states Andrew Badrot, CEO of C2 PHARMA. “I am very proud of what my team has been able to achieve and look forward to seeing how we bring this energy into the upcoming years with the pending launch of Oxybuprocaine (Benoxinate Hydrochloride) API in Q1-2024.”


Along with the C-DMF and CEP approvals, the filings continue to grow across CPHARMA’s API portfolio. The most recent submissions include:
