Core Competencies: Over the Counter (OTC) pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and supplements

  • FBP has invented new forms and found creative ways to put both monographed and new active ingredients into its current forms. 
  • A range of delivery vehicles and formulations can be considered in planning a category to specifically address the needs of the consumer.
  • The process starts with customers at the concept stage to determine and define the brand strategy, the consumer need and the product attributes required to meet that need.

Research & Development: Beginning with Ideation, the art of bringing a new product to market involves a thorough understanding of the active ingredient’s properties in the delivery matrix.  FBP’s knowledge of the actives and excipients used to manufacture the final product means that when the product is delivered it will perform as expected in terms of efficacy, shelf life, and taste. New delivery vehicles | Formulations | Stability Programs

  • New delivery vehicles – First Boston Pharma’s R&D professionals offer extensive experience in creating new delivery vehicles, as well as adapting existing delivery forms for creative applications. 
  • Formulations – Stability and taste masking are the two most critical elements of product development.  FBP’s knowledge of the materials and close working relationship with one of the pre-eminent flavor development companies in the country means that customers get a product that meets or exceeds expectations.
  • Stability Programs – FBP capabilities also includes in-house ICH Q1A compliant stability programs designed to ensure delivery of a product that meets label claim throughout its shelf life. 


  • Over the Counter (OTC) pharmaceuticals.  FBP works primarily with monographed active ingredients and the forms as outlined in the USP.  It also has the skills and capabilities to work with partners in development of NDA’s, ANDA’s, and SNDA’s by preparing and providing data required for these applications.
  • Supplements and nutraceuticals.  These classes of products are becoming increasingly important to the consumer; FBP is currently manufacturing products that compete in this category in all of its forms. 
  • Packaging is a critical attribute of the product, and FBP offers a wide range of packaging capabilities.

Regulatory Compliance:

  • First Boston Pharma meets and exceeds Federal regulations controlling the manufacture and distribution of OTC drug, nutraceutical and supplement products.  FBP, your manufacturing partner, delivers products in compliance with regulations, and in a cost effective manner.

  • Regulations governing the manufacture and distribution of supplements have migrated toward drug status.  First Boston Pharma is DSHEA compliant today, meeting and exceeding these higher standards and providing safe, effective supplement products.
