Catalent Launches CosmoPod® Duo – New Dual Chamber Capsule for Beauty and Consumer Health Topical Applications
Based on the company’s established CosmoPod unit-dose twist-off capsule technology, the CosmoPod Duo capsule features segregated compartments to accommodate two formulations into a single twist-off capsule. The new dosing format allows for the simultaneous application of treatments that combine hero ingredients typically not compatible together; that have a shorter shelf life when combined; or two complementary hero ingredients. The twist-off functionality allows precision application, and offers benefits across a range of consumer health products including topical formulas for skin, hair, and body care.
“Catalent has been a market leader in softgel technology for nearly 90 years, and this latest innovation will support consumer health and beauty brands in bringing a wider choice of products to the market,” commented Dr. Aris Gennadios, President, Softgel and Oral Technologies, Catalent. “The CosmoPod Duo capsule offers consumers many benefits, including a biodegradable, non-animal plant-based shell, as well as superior portability and functionality, especially for on-the-go application.”
The CosmoPod Duo capsule is hermetically sealed to help protect formulations from light and oxidation, and to improve stability compared to traditional beauty applications. The capsule is derived from a special grade of natural carrageenan, sustainably-sourced from seaweed, ensuring consistent performance and quality.
