In the production of cosmetics, a whole series of different mixing and dosing tasks must be carried out smoothly in order to produce high-quality products. Many of these tasks are not easy to realise because the products are, for example, highly viscose and abrasive, contain high quantities of fat or are difficult to clean. Thus, the production of stable and effective emulsions, above all in large volumes and in the shortest batch times, presents a challenge to mixing technology.
Another important aspect of cosmetics production is compliance with current GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standards. Today‘s cosmetics must be of high quality and meet the highest standards. The same applies to process technology.

Details of cosmetics production
From natural cosmetics and decorative cosmetics to discount goods, the widest ranges of cosmetic products are produced in process plants.
An important prerequisite for the production of cosmetics in large quantities is the Scaling Up: Small laboratory batches must be up to 100% reproducible on production machines. All machines, from laboratory machines up to machines that can mix several tons, should be able to produce the same product qualities. This ensures that recipes tried out on small machines can be transferred to large volume production with the same results.
Particularly in the cosmetic industry, many products are also produced in batch processing. Large mixing plants combined with corresponding premix vessels are suitable as process plants for these applications.
Continuous processes, as well as various homogenisers, lend themselves for ongoing processes, such as the production of shampoo, shower gel, hair conditioner, hair dyes, toothpaste, soaps, etc.
