    The ideal humidity is between 45% to 55%.

    If you store in higher humidity the hard gelatin capsules will soften and you will get loads of rejections.There is every possibility that will soften and lose their shape.

    If you store in lower humidity conditions than specified they might get shattered on the machine. The reason is they get slightly smaller in size after losing certain moisture in them.

    Temeperature too is a critical factor. You must store around 20C.
