Licaps Liquid – Filled Capsules®


Take advantage of Capsugel’s signature liquid-filled capsules to help formulate new compounds or advance your product line.


The Capsugel Liquid-Filled Advancement

Capsugel is meeting growing demand for liquid-filled capsules with our Licaps® capsule, a two-piece hard capsule specially designed for secure containment of liquids and semi-solids.

  • Some of the many benefits of using Licaps capsules include:
  • Visually appealing liquid formulation
  • Proprietary LEMS® sealing process means no banding and outstanding product integrity
  • Available in both gelatin and non-animal capsules and a wide variety of sizes and colors
  • Existing products can be reformulated in liquid providing a product line extension
  • Strong consumer perception that liquids are fast-acting
  • Opportunity for improved absorption and bioavailability over tablets
  • Improved time-to-market versus tablets due to less complex formulation and development processes
  • Safer containment for high potency compounds versus tablets
  • Improved content uniformity over tablets, particularly at low dosage levels
  • Better oxygen barrier than tablets against degradation helps protect the potency of ingredients
  • Helps mask taste and unpleasant odors better than softgel capsules
  • Outstanding quality – manufactured in accordance with cGMP guidelines with certified quality assurance system for traceability of raw materials
  • Offers manufacturing flexibility and can be manufactured in-house or by Capsugel

Unlike softgels that contain starch and plasticizers, such as glycerin and sorbitol, Licaps liquid-filled capsules allow you to make popular "clean" label product claims such as: Starch-Free, Gluten-Free, No Additives and No Preservatives.
