Capsugel: Capsules secure containment of liquids and semi-solids

Capsugel’s Licaps® are two-piece hard capsules designed for secure containment of liquids and semi-solids. Containing scientifically backed supplement compounds, the ingredients in the prefilled Licaps capsule line address key consumer health areas, including heart health, immune health, energy and weight management, digestive health, and eye health. The product line has been developed for the European regulatory environment and can also be tailored to meet specifications for countries outside the European Union. 

A 2013 Euromonitor report revealed that vitamins and supplements captured 43% of the $203 billion global consumer health market. Sales of vitamins and supplements in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa represented about 19% of that global growth, with emerging market countries like Russia, Turkey, and South Africa driving regional dynamics.

Using Capsugel’s proprietary Fusion Technology™—a series of advancements in capsule filling, sealing, and final product inspection—Licaps capsules deliver protection for nutritional ingredients. The ready-to-go Licaps capsule products include technologies dedicated to offering multi-phase capsules that may be used to develop products with targeted-release profiles. For example, some ready-to-go Licaps use Duocaps™ “2-in-1” capsule-in-capsule technology and others use liquid beadlets in capsules to combine ingredients.

Licaps capsules help mask ingredients’ unpleasant tastes and odors. They meet vegetarian and clean-labeling preferences, do not contain gluten and other allergens, and are kosher and halal-certified.

The ready-to-go Licaps capsule product line is fully customizable. With a variety of color and print options, these capsules give customers the ability to differentiate offerings and create strong brand recognition.
