The Difference Between Soft And Hard Capsules In Medicinal Empty Capsules

Empty pharmaceutical capsules are used to package powders, pills, or tablet mixtures containing active ingredients

    Empty pharmaceutical capsules are used to package powders, pills or tablet mixtures containing active ingredients that, when administered, produce the desired therapeutic effect. This practice goes beyond pharmaceuticals, as empty capsules are the most common choice for storing herbal and non-pharmaceutical powder preparations, as well as other substances.

    Using empty capsules to make homemade supplements is a simple process. Many people use empty capsules to make their own vitamin and herbal blends, which are more cost-effective than buying such products from the market.

    The empty capsule consists of two distinct parts, a body, and a lid. The body is first filled with a mixture of active ingredients and excipients and then closed with a lid using a manual or automatic press.

    Depending on the raw materials or ingredients used to make these capsule shells, empty capsules can be divided into two types: (1) hard gelatin or (2) hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) capsules. Empty capsules of gelatin and vegetable capsules (HPMC) are available in a variety of sizes.

    Although soft gels and hard gels have some similarities, they are two different dosage forms. Soft gelatin capsules are available in round, oval, tubular, and other all-in-one formulations, while hard gelatin capsules are only available in cylindrical two-piece capsules.

    Both soft and hard gelatin capsules use plasticizers, colorants, sugars, etc. as excipients, but the type and/or amount used varies from one dosage form to another. For example, soft gels have a higher ratio of plasticizer to gelatin than hard gels.
