When the capsules are packaged, the job still is not finished. Correct storage and packaging are important performance factors. Finished gelatin capsules leave the factory with a moisture content range of 13% to 16%. To maintain this, ideal storage conditions are 50% R.H. (relative humidity) at 21°C. The Capsugel Coni-Snap® package, consisting of corrugated boxes lined with anti-static polyethylene bags, is a highly suitable storage option. The recommended storage conditions using Capsugel packaging are 35%-65% R.H. and 15-25°C. When the storage recommendations are followed, the shelf life for Capsugel hard gelatin capsules is 5 years.
