Child safety is our priority, which is why EcoloPharm offers eco-friendly vials certified by the Canadian Standard Association (CSA) as child-resistant.

Since the purpose of a vial is to be opened, we cannot guarantee that no child will be able to open it. It is essential to keep all medications out of reach of children.

In homes with young children, the risk of ingestion of medication is a common risk. To reduce these risks, the Canadian Standard Association (CSA) evaluates the effectiveness of packaging before marketing. It then awards certification to companies that meet these standards requiring safe products for children.

    I really like the newest vials. I find them easier to open therefore our customers will find them easier as well. They are also larger in size which I like in the day to day. Last but not least—the look is futuristic, refreshing, and new!
