Koshland Pharm produces medications of the highest quality, as demonstrated through its status as a PCAB accredited compounding pharmacy. The Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB) is a not-for-profit corporation made up of eight national pharmacy organizations.
PCAB only grants accreditation to a pharmacy that passes a set of rigorous standards, including:
- Using only high-quality, pharmaceutical-grade chemicals and top-of-the-line equipment
- Frequently testing its finished products at an outside laboratory to ensure potency and purity
- Passing a thorough on-site inspection
- Continually training and educating its pharmacists and technicians

One example of Koshland Pharm's commitment to quality is demonstrated through the use of an ointment mill for all of its topical creams, lotions and ointments. The picture below shows the difference between a cream that has been run through the ointment mill and one which has not. This equipment allows for compounded creams of the highest quality with the best, most consistent transdermal absorption. Not all compounding pharmacies use an ointment mill to make their creams.
