  • Pharmethyl® is the essential reference for the use of alcohol as a raw material for pharmaceutical use (MPUP): active principle, excipient, solvent.
  • Pharmethyl®: two ranges adapted to the most demanding regulations and the highest expectations of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry.
  • A Pharmethyl® Standard range produced by batch and analyzed according to the European, American or Japanese pharmacopoeia.
  • A Pharmethyl® GMP range which guarantees the production and packaging on GMP certified sites, respecting Good Manufacturing Practices for active substances.
  • Outstanding technical features and alcohol quality
  • Opting for Pharmethyl® means making sure you have all the quality certifications, from the most classic to the most specific (BSE / TSE, Allergens, ICH Q3C & ICH Q3D, ...).
  • Made from sustainable agricultural raw materials, Pharmethyl® products are guaranteed GMO-free and Kosher certified.

Shelf Life/Retest Date: Based on in-house stability studies, we formally set the date of retest of Pharmethyl grade at the date of release of each individual batch + 24 months (in neutral container) when stored under recommended conditions.

Storage/Shipping Conditions:

  • Store in a cool well-ventilated area, away from sources of ignition. Separated from oxidants, strong mineral acids.
  • Stable and dry environment at ambient temperatures.
  • Any variations of temperature may affect shelf life of alcohol.
  • Alcoholic strength and UV parameters may be impacted by exposure to air and shelf life being reduced accordingly.

Pack Sizes: 500 ml, 25 L and 215 L
