How to select packaging bottles for health products

With the continuous changes and improvements in the plastic packaging of pharmaceutical and health care bottles, pharmaceutical and health care bottles have also been widely used. So what should be paid attention to when selecting the packaging of pharmaceutical and health care bottles?
Selection of medicinal and health care bottle materials: The product standards for solid medicinal and health care bottles specify the applicable main materials, and must meet the requirements of non-toxic and odorless. Due to the variety of main materials available, it is necessary to select the comprehensive performance of the raw materials. Generally, high-density polyethylene or polypropylene bottles are used for tablets, and PET bottles can be used if transparency is required. For example, health care bottles require higher barrier performance and light resistance If it is not transparent, brown PET bottles are used. Polypropylene bottles or polyester bottles are generally used as the main raw materials for liquid dosage forms of health products.
2. Product quality standards for medicinal and health care bottles can be analyzed and judged from the product quality standards of the manufacturer. Pharmaceutical and health product bottle enterprises should establish enterprise standards that are stricter than national and industrial standards.
3. The sealing property of the bottle body and lid, water vapor permeability, and sealing property and water vapor permeability are two important technical indicators for medicinal and health care bottles, which have a crucial impact on the stability of the drug charge.
4. The quality assurance system and the audit of suppliers have become an essential and important link in purchasing health care bottles. Through audits, a comprehensive and correct assessment of the comprehensive level of the manufacturer's software and hardware facilities, technical equipment, and quality can be made.
5. The stability and compatibility of the filling of health care bottles. When selecting health care bottles, especially new health care products, when selecting new health care bottle packaging (or new materials, new processes), it is necessary to first conduct a filling test to investigate the stability of the filling and the compatibility between the health care bottle and the drug. The mutual penetration, dissolution, adsorption, chemical reaction, and denaturation of health care products and bottle materials must be determined through scientific testing.
With the continuous changes in market demand, health care bottle manufacturers are also continuously improving the quality of their products, introducing better products in terms of functionality and safety.
