Galenical Preparations: formulations and packaging

The importance of packaging to the pharmaceutical galenical preparations.

The quality of producing and packaging galenical preparations is the solution for every pharmacist who wishes to upgrade his business. But where does the term “galenical preparations” come from and are the advantages of creating these products?
The galenical pharmaceutics, in the first place, were the medicine that were prepared by Claudius Galenus (Galen), the second most important doctor after Hippocrates, during the ancient years. According to the bibliography, these pharmaceutics were complex and came from plants’ oils and animals.
It is true that the art of creating pharmaceutics had disappeared for a while and the pharmacist was just the seller of products made from pharmaceutical companies. But now, the market of galenical pharmaceutics is developing rapidly, creating a competition in this specific field.

The pharmaceutics that are prepared in a pharmacy lab have many advantages and a pharmacist can profit from them. There is also a big benefit for the patients that use them.

Galenical preparations cover a big range of needs, comparing to the industry made ones.
Some of these are:

• Adjusting the pharmaceutics to the patient’s needs, individually.
• Covering the needs that may appear in certain groups, such as the elderly or infants.
• Prescription of medicine, either non-existing or in lack of from industries.
• Changing the form of the medicine for easy use, for example turning a pill into a syrup.
• Preparing homeopathy pharmaceutics.
• Creating cosmetic products.
• Producing pharmaceutics without conservatives, suitable for long term treatments and ideal for sensitive skin.
