Gelatin Capsules Shell

A Gelatin capsule is a capsule made of gelatin as the main material. If it is not filled with drugs, it is called a hollow capsule to fill drugs. The drug is directly wrapped into soft capsules by drop method, steel mold method, or rotary mold method.

Halal capsules shell

Halal capsules are mainly made of halal gelatin. Do not add any illegal halal ingredients during the production process. It has the same appearance and filling performance as gelatin hollow capsules and is suitable for various types of automatic filling machines.

Plant capsule shell

Vegetable capsule shells extracted from natural plants using HPMC as the main raw material. The vegetable capsule shell is made of tapioca, glycerin, and purified water. It has the advantages of natural plant extraction, no odor, no preservatives, and no fungicides.

Enteric Capsules Shell

Intestinal-coated capsules are a special type of medical polymer material that is added to the capsule shell or treated to make it insoluble in gastric juice but only disintegrates and dissolves in intestinal juice. It won’t even dissolve in boiling water.


1. The main raw material of vegetable capsule is hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC), which is the most abundant natural polymer in nature and is extracted from marine or terrestrial plants by physical methods.

2. HPMC in vegetable capsule is stable in nature (no chemical reaction with air and water), and will not cross link with some drugs. It has wide adaptability, stable drug release rate, complete dissolution, more significant effect, and small individual difference. HPMC still has a natural concept after being made into capsule, and no preservatives need to be added in the production process.

3. The vegetable capsule is not fragile under low humidity conditions, and the capsule shell can still be stable under high humidity conditions. The storage conditions are broad, and the temperature is between 10 – 40 ℃, and the humidity is between 35 – 65%, which will not soften, deform, or harden and become brittle.
