Everything about cosmetics production

The production of cosmetics requires the purchase of formula ingredients and a series of technological processes in the production workshop.

Ingredients, mixing, homogenization, etc. are all in one place.

The ingredients are usually weighed by the workers and piled aside, and then thrown into the reaction pot. Generally, there are only two or three pots for cosmetics. Depending on the scale of production, the larger ones may be more than one ton, and the shampoo and so on are even bigger. The pot is mainly used for stirring, so there are stirring paddles in it, and probes for various temperatures, pressure, and speed. Cosmetics are basically emulsified, so it is necessary to divide the water and oil into two pots. The raw materials can be mixed after being mixed, and then homogenized through a pipeline, that is, high-speed stirring and shearing to make the mixture uniform. After the mixture is evenly mixed, you can add various flavors or actives, and then it is out of the pot. After being out of the pot, the materials will be placed in buckets for filling.

There is nothing to say about filling, that is, filling the material into bottles and cans quantitatively. Depending on the packaging, the filling line is also different. Before filling, you must prepare various packaging materials and arrange them so that you can enter the production line. Some of the whole processes is fully automatic, and some are still watched by workers. After filling, the bottles and cans can be placed in the carton and then packed.

When it comes to the remaining materials, each company handles them differently. Anyway, the materials we make for trial production are all randomly distributed, and they are not expensive. A well-controlled workshop can be aseptic, which is very strict to the factory and equipment. Generally speaking, you can refer to the workshops of pharmaceutical companies. Of course, cosmetics workshops generally do not have such high requirements, after all, they are not eaten in the stomach. In addition, the factory’s QC will also test each batch of materials to ensure that each batch of products is within the specified indicators.

Next, we introduce the specific production process:

Storage of raw materials and packaging materials

Packaging materials are loaded into the warehouse

Inspection of raw materials and packaging materials before production

The inspection of packaging materials needs to be strict, and it is necessary to ensure that the packaging materials are intact during production and no side leakage will occur. Generally, a packaging material test is required before customers produce packaging materials.
