How are soft capsules made?
A modern technology park and a number of qualified specialists guarantee that Curtis Health Caps provides the service of contract production of soft capsules at the highest level. For encapsulation, we use odorless, tasteless gelatin, which is neutral for the body – beef, pork or fish (depending on the expectations and needs of our customers).
In addition, we offer capsules for chewing or chewing, which we produce using a special gelatin mix. Thanks to an efficiently functioning control system, we eliminate all deviations by providing our contractors with products that meet strict quality standards. The encapsulation process in our factories follows strict rules (including GMP, BRC), while complying with applicable national and international law.
Soft capsules are a popular form of administration of a medicinal product or dietary supplement, associated with numerous advantages, including:
- increased bioavailability,
- masking the smell, taste and unsightly appearance,
- easier to swallow compared to hard capsules and tablets guarantee security,
- the possibility of dosing solid drugs with a small amount of auxiliary substances,
- possibility of precise dosing of liquid and semi-liquid substances,
- the possibility of using less auxiliary substances than in tablets,
- physiological indifference of the substances that make up the envelope.
What capsules can we offer you?
As part of the contractual production of medicinal products and dietary supplements, we offer the possibility of individual selection of the shape of soft capsules, from among the four most popular (oval, oblong, round, twist-off) or any other, tailored to the individual preferences of customers.
The gelatinous shell of the soft capsule can be transparent or non-transparent (covered), one or two colors, matte or glossy. In the production of soft capsules and contract manufacturing, we always take into account the applicable legal regulations and advise customers in choosing the color of the product.
We also offer special solutions for chewable capsules, lozenges, bath capsules, cosmetic products and veterinary products.
