A suitable emulsifying mixer and filling machine are essential for creating cosmetic creams, whether on a small or big scale. The stability of cream emulsions is vital for the cosmetics industry, whereas instability is a concern.
There are two possible outcomes for an emulsion that is unstable:
- First is that your formulation doesn’t have an emulsifier, or it has the improper kind. When two immiscible substances, such as oil and water, combine, an emulsifier as a binder.
- Second, the oil and water molecules cannot be broken down by the strength of your emulsifying mixer to create an emulsion.
Flocculation, coagulation, coalescence, and separation are all possible outcomes. The agitator blades and the cream filling machine are both susceptible to harm from aeration if the mixture is not well mixed.
Therefore, with a suitable mixer machine, your cosmetic cream formulation can result in a gain of capital. For this, you’ll need our emulsifying mixer.
MAKWELL Emulsifying Mixer for Cosmetics
Our mixer machine is best for combining skincare products and thick body cream mixes. Our industrial-grade mixer can achieve the necessary uniformity and particle size in less time due to quicker reaction rates. We provide various sizes and design combinations of cosmetic mixers to accommodate your individual ingredient qualities and financial constraints.
Homogeneous Cosmetic Cream Ingredient Blends
When making cosmetic creams, our batch mixer uses high-shear mixing to effectively homogenize, emulsify, disintegrate, combine, and solubilize the components. This produces a cream with a delicate texture that your clients will like using on their skin! Additionally, it helps that we provide industrial mixers at costs that are comparable with those found elsewhere.
Customized Cream Formulation Mixers
Moisturizers and barrier creams are both common uses for products designed for the face and body. Different cosmetic cream formulas are possible to provide the desired characteristics and viscosities for these two uses.
Therefore, we manufacture custom mixing equipment to meet the needs of your product under varying loads, including the specifications you demand. This ensures consistent mixing power and temperature and allows quick operation and easy switching. As a result, there will be less downtime and a faster return on investment.
Cosmetic Cream Mixers
Vacuum Homogenizer Mixer
Because it is vacuum-sealed, a Vacuum Homogenizer Mixer keeps out air and bacteria as it mixes. The particles are drawn in by the vacuum and distributed more smoothly. The beauty industry’s leading brands widely use our vacuum homogenizer mixer because it consistently results in smooth, lump-free formulations of popular products, including moisturizers, sunscreen, and other topical applications. From pilot-scale to full-scale production, we can accommodate your needs.
High Shear Batch Mixer
Our best cosmetic cream mixer, the High Shear Mixer, efficiently homogenizes, emulsifies, and disperses thick, sticky mixtures. It has a high-quality, custom-built rotor-stator homogenizer with an innovative proprietary mixing mechanism. A portable stand, motor, transmission component, and lifting mechanism facilitate operation and swap out. We also provide an inverter that allows the user to adjust the speed of the operating parameters at will.
The volume of our high-shear batch mixer, depending on your demands, may range from 100 to 300L. This mixing equipment allows for faster production and higher throughput when making large quantities of cosmetic cream.
Powder Induction Mixer for Thicker Lotions
Many cosmetics factories use High Shear Powder Induction Mixers to whip up thick lotions and potions. Powders are more effectively mixed with liquids thanks to the inline suction pump and powder feed hopper. It helps mix high-viscosity liquids when putting large quantities of flake particles into the tank. It also prevents the formation of agglomerates and aeration, both of which may be issues when packing.
Bottom Entry Homogenizer
Shear Bottom Entry Mixers have a rotor-stator homogenizer at the bottom to blend inflexible, thick cream compositions. With its slow-moving anchor stirrer and high-pressure homogenizer, it is capable of performing high-pressure mixing.
The Making of a Cosmetic Cream
Manufacturing Cosmetic Cream Using Our Mixers
Both oil-in-water and water-in-oil emulsions may be used for making cosmetic creams. Moisturizers and emollients are often found in cosmetic creams and are extensively combined with the oil and water phases. Both water and oil may be used to spread the active components. Thickeners and emulsifiers, two more binding chemicals, are also used. Add any flavors, colors, or preservatives you choose.
The following steps occur in the mixing process of a standard cream:
- First is adding powder ingredients to the oil phase. To ensure that it dissolves in oil when mixed, it may either be dry blended prior or added to the oil directly. A jacketed heating element within the tank may melt powders or flakes.
- Depending on your formulation, the next step would be disseminating the active components in either an oil or water phase.
- Water-based additives such as Carbopol blend with stabilizers, emulsifiers, and thickeners in a separate tank.
- After separating the oil and water phases, the next is to mix to produce an emulsion. If the formulation calls for it or the solution thickens too much, heating it between 110 and 185 degrees Fahrenheit (45 and 85 degrees Celsius) is an option.
- Up until the mixture is homogenized, mixing is continuous.
You could have some mixing issues depending on the quality of the mixer you use:
- When using traditional agitators or blenders, the powder might clump together and become visible.
- When thickening agents hydrate, “fish-eyes” may develop in the mixture. This is often avoidable with well-mixed powder and shear solid energy.
- When using a flake or powder as an ingredient, the hydrated component may stick to the mixing blades or the vessel wall.
- Stabilizing emulsions using standard agitators may be difficult when heating the water and oil components.
- A standard agitator may require extra milling or heating tools with extended processing periods. The reaction rates would be lower, and take longer to get a uniform mixture.
Using these streamlined procedures, our emulsifying mixer can successfully produce cosmetic cream:
- At the start of the mixing operation, the liquid component is introduced to the vessel first. After amassing power, the granules are distributed. The kinetic energy of the liquid from spinning rapidly wets the powders, drawing them to the workhead.
- Powders and liquids are funneled into the small space between the rotor and stator by the high-energy centrifugal force.
- The workhead will grind, disintegrate, and solubilize it in a short time. As the processed, micronized goods are sucked out of the rotor-stator, introducing new products
- The dispersed phase is introduced, creating an emulsion after evenly distributing all the components in the continuous phase.
- The emulsion is mixed with high shear until it is homogenous and stable.
