How to Make Cosmetic Creams
Mixing is the critical stage in obtaining stability in cosmetic emulsions such as creams and lotions. A Silverson mixer can help you achieve the best skin feel, consistency and functionality from your ingredients.
A fine droplet size is the key to creating a stable, homogenous emulsion. High Shear mixing draws the oil and aqueous phases into the workhead and subjects them to intense shear, resulting in a typical droplet size of 2 -5 microns. Finer emulsions down to 0.5 microns can be achieved, depending on the formulation.
With a Silverson High Shear mixer a stable emulsion is produced after just a few seconds mixing. Our lab mixers are ideal for R&D and small scale production and identical results can be achieved with our production scale batch mixers.
For larger batches, an In-Line mixer recirculating the contents of the vessel will produce a fine, uniform emulsion.
