Pharmakeep® Oxygen & Moisture Absorber
Humidity Neutral Oxygen Scavengers Both functions Oxygen & Moisture adsorption
PharmaKeep® is an innovative and unique line of polymer-based oxygen absorbers that are
"humidity neutral." Unlike traditional iron based oxygen
scavengers, PharmaKeep® requires no moisture to react.
Available as canisters, packets and bags, PharmaKeep oxygen absorbers protect pharmaceutical and diagnostic products from oxygen degradation and oxidative reactions, thus extending the shelf life. Because they do not require humidity to function, PharmaKeep can be used in conjunction with desiccants.
Oxygen scavengers are often used in conjunction with high barrier
containers. Clariant offers Oxy-Guard® Barrier Bottles.

- Humidity neutral: Iron based oxygen scavengers are normally not suitable for most dry pharmaceutical applications due to their need for the presence of moisture to scavenge oxygen. PharmaKeep is humidity neutral, absorbing oxygen at either low or high relative humidity levels, and can be used in conjunction with a desiccant.
- High speed insertion: Due to their rigidity, PharmaKeep capsules can be inserted at high rates of speed using standard desiccant canister insertion equipment. Packets can also be automated.
- Full protection: PharmaKeep can be paired with Clariant’s Oxy-Guard® oxygen barrier bottles for an ideal package solution
- Degradation avoidance: With PharmaKeep, the chemical and physical degradation of drug products can be mitigated, sometimes visible in extreme color change
