Capsugel® Vcaps® Plus capsules represent a unique and valuable contribution: they perform like gelatin but offer additional advantages, particularly a lower moisture content, which makes them excellent for hygroscopic and moisture-sensitive drugs and manufacturing processes. HPMC capsules are inert and robust against cross-linking or the effects of extreme storage conditions. Furthermore, Vcaps® Plus capsules have equivalent performance and appearance to that of gelatin capsules, offering new possibilities to product developers around the world.
