01 Application

Almost all medication packagings advise users to store their medication in a dry, cool and preferably dark place. The combination of light, heat and moisture allows bacteria and fungi to thrive and causes the medication to spoil. Of course, this affects the effectiveness of the medication.

Our desiccants are inert: they do not interact with the chemically active substances in the medication itself.

Food supplements
Protein and other shake powders will form clumps when they are moist. We therefore place a desiccant inside the packaging’s lid. Since the desiccant is safe for use in the food sector, the consumer can leave the desiccant inside the packaging after opening the product.
