Active desiccant system to extend shelf-life of sensitive drugs

Edition Date :
April 19, 2019

Rigid plastic tubes & desiccant stoppers form the ideal package to protect drugs and supplements – particularly effervescent tablets, chewables or lozenges – from moisture degradation and breakage, as well as extend brand equity. It inhibits moisture ingress via proper control of MVTR, while simultaneously adsorbing moisture with desiccant stopper.

Several standard features are available for stoppers such as tamper evident, spiral or half-spiral, easy-opening, or flip-top.  As needed, Clariant’s team and its customers collaborate on specific needs to develop new concepts, applying a strict stage gate process with a unique goal of improving end-consumer experience.

With three production plants (GMP and ISO 15378) over three continents, Clariant is present worldwide guaranteeing reactivity and proximity with its customers along with supply chain optimization.
