GELITA, the major player in the global collagen protein market, presents body function-stimulating bioactive collagen peptides VERISOL®, for “Beauty from Within” and GELITA® RXL gelatine for Improved shelf-life and stability of hard and soft capsules.
VERISOL®—Real beauty comes from within
Beauty products based on collagen are already well established and collagen has been exceptionally successful in a variety of functional foods and nutraceuticals. Consumers, especially women, have long recognized the value of collagen to promote beauty. After being primarily used in topical cosmetic products, collagen successfully entered dietary supplements and health and nutrition products before becoming an essential ingredient for the rocketing nutricosmetics market.
Now this trend of “Beauty from Within” created in Asia is clearly moving westwards and opens up huge market potentials in Europe as well as in North America. These potentials have been confirmed recently by consumer surveys conducted in Europe and the USA.
VERISOL®, administered orally, influences the skin’s collagen metabolism directly from the inside. In this way it increases the skin moisture and prevents the formation of wrinkles. VERISOL® is produced from native collagen and has an excellent bioavailability. It can be easily incorporated into the most varied of products—from pharmaceutical-like applications such as capsules, film-coated tablets, standard tablets and capsettes to indulgence products such as chocolate or instant coffee.
GELITA® RXL—The gelatine providing capsules with a long shelf-life
Gelatine is the industry’s gold standard for capsule production due to its high bioavailablity, ability to protect active ingredients, neutral taste and color and high consumer acceptance and compliance. However, in extreme storage conditions with high temperatures and/or high humidity, the gelatine in capsules can cross-link to form a film of insoluble gelatine that can impede release of the fill (the active ingredients inside the capsule). This phenomenon is more pronounced in capsules containing certain problematic fills.
GELITA is now offering a solution—GELITA® RXL (Reduced Cross-Linking) Gelatine—to enhance the availability of actives. With GELITA’s approach to redefining capsule technology, GELITA® RXL Gelatine adds value to capsules by increasing dissolution properties, improving shelf-life (especially at high temperatures and humidity) and by allowing manufacturers of H&N, OTC or Rx products to explore new fills that were previously thought not possible to encapsulate.
GELITA® RXL is the first and only pure gelatine solution in the marketplace and this unique solution for reduced cross-linking gelatine is protected by U.S. Patent 07485323 and other international patents granted and pending.
GELIKO® OU Kosher Gelatine – Meeting Demands of a Growing Kosher Market
