  1. CILICANT is manufacturer of desiccants for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, dietary supplement, medical devices, healthcare Packaging industries. CILICANT desiccants increase the shelf life of the products.

    Desiccant Pouch

    CILICANT Desiccant Pouches are compact sachets packed with active sorbents designed to protect pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals from moisture-induced degradation. Each CILICANTFG desiccant pouch ensures product stability, efficacy and extends shelf life.

    Without proper moisture control in the packaging environment, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical efficacy can be severely compromised. Unbound moisture destabilises active ingredients by prompting premature enzyme activation or hydrolytic degradation. This can lead to a loss of potency resulting in adverse outcomes for manufacturers and consumers.

    The sorbents in CILICANT Desiccant Pouches limit the damaging effects of moisture ingress by active adsorption of all permeating free moisture. This ensures consistent levels of relative humidity in the headspace of the pharmaceutical packaging throughout the product’s lifecycle.

    CILICANT Desiccant Pouches can be safely used in direct contact with a wide range of pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals. All CILICANTFG Desiccant Pouches are manufactured in ISO 15378 cGMP facilities, adhering to stringent global standards. As such, they are compliant with Title 21 of the US Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). They are tested in compliance with current USP 41 guidelines. CILICANTFG Desiccant Pouches also hold both a Type III DMF (Drug Master File) and a Health Canada Master File (MF).
