ALLTUB aluminium tubes complemented by ALLTUB laminate tubes are the packaging of choice for pharmaceutical topical creams, ointments and gels.

Their exceptional barrier properties together with their specific method of production and finishing process comply with the highest standards of hygiene and safety prevailing in the pharmaceutical industry. Fully airtight, they prevent active products from evaporating. Besides, aluminium and laminate tubes allow the manufacture of preservative-free products, preservatives often being the source of allergies for the consumer. Tubes also preserve the Galenicals’properties of medicines.

Used for many years, yet still very modern thanks to the latest printing technology, tubes are still a must in the pharmaceutical industry.

In the current context ALLTUB has adapted to the fast growing market for hygienic packaging and offers laminate tubes which are a hygienic and practical solution for anti-bacterial hand sanitizer gels.
