What you should know about storing capsules

Store in a dry place 

Empty capsules are made of materials sensitive to moisture and humidity.

Store them in a dry environment to prevent them to become soft, deform, or stick together.

Avoid direct sunlight

Exposure to direct sunlight can degrade the capsules' quality over time. 

Store the containers in a cool, dark place to prevent any light-induced damage.

Temperature control

Extreme temperatures can affect the stability of the capsules. 

Store them in a temperature-controlled environment:
Gelatin: 15ºC - 25ºC
Vegan: 15ºC - 30ºC

Capsules shelf life

If properly stored, our empty capsules can last up to:

- Gelatin: 5 years.
- Vegetarian: 5 years.
- Enteric: 2 years.
