Sorbitol Special® plasticizers are sorbitan-sorbitol based soft gel plasticizers. They enhance the capsule finish gloss for a premium appearance, help to prevent leakage, provide consistent pharmaceutical quality, and extend shelf life by maintaining a proper moisture balance within the capsule shell.
Improving Soft Gel Capsules
The formation of a soft capsule requires the use of a non-volatile plasticizer in addition to water to guarantee the mechanical stability. Sorbitol Special plasticizers are engineered to counter balance the stresses during processing and drying. SPI Pharma has the products and expertise to make a difference in your soft gel.
