Interesting Fact: Did you know that the first recorded patent for a gelatine capsule occurred in France and was made by two Frenchmen Messiers Du Blanc and Mothes? The patent was granted on the 25th March 1834; Du Blanc was a French pharmacist and F Mothes, a young pharmacy student. It was Mothes who actually ‘invented’ the capsule but at the time of presenting the patent he was too young to receive his diploma in pharmacy, so he became associated with Du Blanc in order to present the patent.
