Storage Conditions

Normally, hard gelatin capsules contain 13–16% of moisture. If additional moisture is absorbed when stored in a high relative humidity environment, hard gelatin capsule shell may lose their rigid shape and become distorted. In an opposite environment of extreme dryness, capsules may become too brittle and may crumble during handling. So, Capsules are to be stored under control conditions of Temperature (20-25°C) & Humidity (45-55 %)

 

We strongly recommend to store our capsules in the above mentioned controlled conditions only.
