Additionally, the formulation of softgel capsules enhances operator safety by lessening contamination brought on by handling dust. Consumers find softgel capsules (SGCs) more appealing and enjoyable since they can be made in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colours, as well as with different drug delivery methods such chewable and meltable softgels.
