A Softgel is a hermetically sealed soft gelatin shell containing a compounded fill in a liquid or semi-liquid state that has been formed, filled and sealed in one continuous operation.

Soft gelatin capsules provide better bioavailability because of superior pharmaco-kinetic parameters. In addition, they provide dosage accuracy, better visual appeal and aid in masking of unpleasant taste. Softgels also protect against oxidation of product, are tamper resistant and easy to swallow.
