Expand Your Brand and Explore a New Face on Nutraceuticals with a Unique and Patented Technology in Fixed Dose Combinations


From young to old and whether it’s a daily walk or a marathon, consumers understand the importance of having a healthy lifestyle. Consumers of different ages are everyday more concerned and aware of their wellbeing, therefore new and more specialized supplements need to be developed, customized solutions focused on specific needs. 

Softigel by Procaps is addressing these needs by introducing novel technologies and formats that not only bring quality and product shelf life to products, but solves the need of combining different products into one single dose, reducing the number of doses to take per day, and offering a more enjoyable and pleasant way of taking vitamins, supplements and medication.

We invite you to attend this webinar, were we will present the many benefits of a unique option for multi-ingredient products in a soft capsule for your Nutraceutical brand: Unigel™. This novel technology allows you to accommodate many excipients in two or three dosage forms contained in one-single clear capsule; increasing not just the consumer appealing experience by offering a clear soft capsule with multi-compartment, but also increasing product shelf life, or even having the possibility of combinations which have not been possible until now, by separating in different dosage forms those ingredients that can interact among them affecting product stability. 

We will go through the many benefits that Unigel™ offers within the fixed dose combination matrix, as well as explore case studies around key formulations, research and product knowledge that will allow you to not only extend your brand but also grow within the market you are in today in a faster, differentiated way.
