Pharmacies use a wide range of specific chemicals in their operations, depending on the products and services they offer. Isopropyl alcohol is used as a disinfectant that is used to sterilize surfaces, equipment, and containers in the pharmacy. Hydrogen peroxide is also used as a disinfectant, as well as an antiseptic in the pharmacy. As an antiseptic, hydrogen peroxide is used in wound care to help clean and disinfect wounds. Ethanol is another chemical used in pharmacies to disinfect surfaces and equipment. In addition, ethanol is also used as a solvent in the preparation of certain medications.
Sodium Chloride, commonly known as salt, is used in pharmacies for various purposes. Sodium chloride is a key component of intravenous (IV) solutions, particularly in isotonic saline solutions. These solutions are used to replenish fluids and electrolytes in the body, maintain hydration, and restore electrolyte balance. Sodium chloride is also used in the preparation of saline solutions for nasal irrigation. These solutions, also known as saline nasal sprays or nasal rinses, help to flush out mucus, allergens, and other irritants from the nasal passages, providing relief from congestion and other sinus symptoms. Wound care is another use for sodium chloride as a cleansing agent. Saline solutions made with sodium chloride are used to irrigate and clean wounds, helping to remove debris, bacteria, and other contaminants.
Glycerin, also known as glycerol, is another chemical used for various purposes in the operations of pharmacies. Glycerin is a common ingredient in tropical preparations, such as creams, lotions, and ointments. It is used as a humectant, which means it helps to attract and retain moisture, keeping skin hydrated and preventing dryness. Another application of glycerin in pharmacies is in cough syrups and oral elixirs as a sweetener and viscosity agent. It helps to mask the taste of medications. In other oral products, glycerin is used in the formulation of oral solutions and suspensions. It is also found in oral hygiene products, such as mouthwashes, toothpaste, and oral gels to help retain moisture, provide lubrication, and enhance the texture of these products.
