The philosophy behind URSATEC
URSATEC is dedicated to support the global health care industry in avoiding preservatives in any kind of pharmaceutical, medical device or cosmetic products. Health care administrations recommend the development of preservative-free pharmaceutical and cosmetic products worldwide.
„Preservatives shall be avoided wherever possible“
(Recommendation by German Health Authorities, 2004)
„The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has urged the pharma industry to develop preservative free nasal sprays“
Preservatives are chemicals which are added to pharmaceuticals, food and cosmetics to inhibit the growth of pathogenetic and non pathogenetic microorganisms. Preservatives can cause various allergic reactions such as allergic rhinitis and rhinitis medicamentosa.
