Active Barrier Packaging Solutions

The Perfect Match for LOG’s Barrier Bottles

In addition to barrier bottles, LOG offers innovative active components as part of a complete packaging solution.


Standard desiccant solutions, which include canisters or sachets, are commonly placed loose inside bottles. This has the following drawbacks:

  • Desiccants might fall out and not be returned to the bottle
  • Desiccants could be swallowed by mistake
  • Desiccants are in direct contact with the tablets, which might cause the tablets to dry out, possibly chip, break or disintegrate.


LOG’s innovative and patent-pending ActiveGuard™ solves all of these challenges. The ActiveGuard™ is placed inside the neck of LOG’s specially designed Barrier Bottles and is locked into place to prevent it from moving in any direction. The ActiveGuard™ is prefilled with moisture desiccants and/or oxygen absorbers according to customer requirements.


The maximal amount of desiccant contained in the ActiveGuard™ is 2 grams for the 33mm neck finish and 4 grams for the 38mm neck finish.



  • Desiccant cannot fall out of the bottle
  • Desiccant cannot be swallowed by mistake
  • Desiccant does not come in direct contact with the tablets, preventing possible damage
  • Reduces head space while still allowing the easy dispensing of the tablets
  • Contrary to integrated desiccant closures, the ActiveGuard™ enables the use of an induction heat seal liner to hermetically seal the bottle and provide tamper proof evidence.


Placed firmly in the neck of the bottle


LOG’s ActiveClosure™ is filled with the required desiccant type and quantity according to the customer’s specifications.
In comparison to standard desiccant sachets or canisters, ActiveClosure™ has the following advantages:

  • The desiccant is not in direct contact with the drug, which allows an equal distribution of its effect
  • The head space is reduced
  • The desiccant cannot fall out during use
  • There is no possibility of accidently swallowing the desiccant
