The softgel (soft gelatine) capsule is a one piece, hermetically sealed shell wall filled with oils and non-aqueous liquids, plus solids in a paste or solution form. The shell gives a unique strength and durability to softgels, and protects the inner fill material from the atmospheric oxidation that compromises the potency and shelf life of other oral dosage forms.

Viva Pharmaceutical Inc. is one of the largest manufacturers of soft gelatin capsules in the industry, initiating its softgel production in 1999 – forever changing the company’s standing in the nutritional and pharmaceutical industries at a performance level of more than 6 billion
