capsules manufacturingAre you interested in encapsulating ? Before marketing a supplement, choose how your product should be processed.

The layer of the capsule dissolves less quickly in the stomach and makes it easier to swallow due to the smooth structure.

manufacturing capsulesDifferent types of capsules

The type of capsule depends on the material it is made of. At SKEL Supplements we can process your product in three types of capsules: HGC capsules, HPMC capsules and polymer capsules.


  • HGC capsules

The abbreviation HGC actually stands for hard gelatin capsules. You probably already know these capsules. They are hard capsules based on gelatin, in which often powders are measured. HGC capsules are still used worldwide, especially within the pharmaceutical industry. Meanwhile, this type of capsules has become less interesting due to its animal origin.


  • HPMC capsules

When we talk about HPMC capsules, we are actually talking about the material HydroxyPropylMethylCellulose or Hypromellose and it is derived from wood pulp. It is a viscoelastic polymer that is used, for example, in eye drops in addition to capsules. In fact, it is a successful alternative to animal gelatin (HGC capsules). In short: our HPMC capsules are completely vegan and also Koser and Halal certified.


  • Polymer Capsules

In addition to the HGC and HPMC capsules, we have capsules made from other polymers. With our expertise we are happy to advise you which capsule is most suitable for your application. 


Capsule sizes and runs

After determining your capsule material, we will discuss the capsule size. It depends largely on your desired dosages and density of ingredients. We can also advise you on this. The most common and supplied sizes are size 000, size 00, size 0 and size 1. If you are not familiar with these sizes, please let us inform and advise you about it producing capsules .


Have capsules made with your own logo and colors

Finally, you can choose to customize the colors of your capsules and stand out clearly from the competition. Here the possibilities are endless. It is even possible to provide the capsules with your own text or logo.
