HYDROXYPROPYL METHYLCELLUOSE (HPMC) is a pure hydrocolloid, derived from vegetable or herbaceous materials. It is a bioadhesive, viscolizing agent, and binder. It has a high resiliency and is safe and environmentally friendly. It has been developed for dietary supplements and pharmaceutical products.
HPMC capsules are a safe and effective way to deliver your supplements. They have the same appearance and size as gelatine capsules, and offer superior resiliency. They also offer excellent stability with a variety of APIs.
They are ideal for hygroscopic formulations. They are also resistant to high temperatures and humidity. Unlike gelatin capsules, HPMC capsules are easily digestible. HPMC can be stored for up to 36 months without deterioration.
They are also suitable for vegetarians and other consumers. HPMC capsules are derived from plant-based ingredients and are cGMP-approved. These capsules are made in state-of-the-art facilities.
The production process includes raw materials, capsule manufacturing, inspection, and delivery. The empty capsules are packed in Styrofoam sheets and an aluminum foil bag. The capsules are weighed empty and full on a scale that is accurate to one-tenth of a gram. The capsules are also available in different colours. Typically, titanium dioxide is used as a colourant. However, the use of titanium dioxide has associated health risks.
Vegetarian HPMC capsules are made with 100% plant-derived materials. They are cGMP-approved and typically Halal certified. They are also free from animal-based contaminants and have no additives. They have a leak-free closure and two aerodynamic air vents.
