Why are suppositories wrapped in foil? That is because aluminum foil has a variety of properties that make it ideal for safe, convenient and general-purpose packaging of pharmaceutical products such as tablets, powders and liquids. The unmatched barrier properties of aluminum foil make it impermeable to moisture, aromas, oxygen and other gases, as well as microorganisms and light. Sensitive products like suppositories thus remain in perfect condition for a long time.
Aluminum foil is non-toxic and harmless, it does not contain or promote bacteria, this is another reason why are suppositories wrapped in foil. Aluminum foil packaging is available in a completely sterile state. Aluminum foil is also suitable for tamper-evident sealing and anti-counterfeiting security applications such as holograms. In the medical and personal care markets, medicine aluminum foil is primarily used in push-on blisters due to its high barrier properties, sealable and frangible membrane. In cold-formed blisters or strip packs (such as for suppositories), the excellent formability of aluminum foil allows us to form the material into highly complex shapes without compromising its barrier integrity.
Aluminium foil also has very good environmental performance– it saves weight, lowers shipping and handling costs, and provides full protection for sensitive pharmaceutical package contents. Advanced separation technology allows aluminium foil from household waste to be recovered and recycled at a fraction of the original energy cost.
