Pharma & Life Science
Over the past decades, health awareness and the desire to be healthy has steadily grown as medicine has been advancing. Personal preventive care has become part of many consumers’ daily regimen, as evidenced by their increased consumption of vitamins, minerals, and food supplements to protect their health.
As a consequence, the demand for pharmaceutical products has been rising, and regulations have become more complex and comprehensive. Products are subject to strict controls, protocols, and certifications, not least because targeted drug delivery is critical to guarantee correct dosages.
In addition to safety and purity aspects, there are technical requirements for the processing and performance of the ingredients used. To name just a few, ingredients must:
- be easily mixable with each other
- protect the active ingredient and release it at the right moment
- be easily and quickly compressible (e.g. for tablets)
In the broadest sense, whenever an active ingredient is involved, consumers and the industry have similar performance requirements for over-the-counter medicines, food supplements, or wellness and beauty products.
