When medical products are exposed to air for too long, the quality and efficacy of the product can be severely reduced, posing a big problem for users. Often, when medical professionals and patients try to reseal the products, they put the cap on the bottle incorrectly, or forget entirely. The steps of removing and replacing the cap also increase workflow and reduce efficiency. We see a need for a self-closing bottle that meets the following criteria:

NOTE: Do not worry about childproofing your packaging design.
Design a medicine bottle or package that self-closes after a user opens it. In your solution, include the following:
