What is the difference between a pharmacy and a parapharmacy?



We all know or, we think we know, that it is a pharmacy, but do we know the difference between pharmacy and parapharmacy?

Pharmacy is the science and practice of drug preparation, preservation, presentation and dispensing. It is also part of the pharmacy as a science advising the use of such medicines.To the establishment where this science is practiced we call it with the same name, pharmacy.



The parapharmacy on the other hand is the preparation and dispensing of medicinal products that are not medicines.
