Production of creams

High purity and accurate metering with the aim to get always the same product quality–this represents cosmetics. These individual applications mostly require custom metering solutions. For example, several pump heads can be used to meter products such as perfume, water, fat phases or glycerin to the exact recipe. A skin cream consists of various components. LEWA pumps make it possible to precisely mix and meter the individual constituents in the cream manufacturing process.

Finely dosed

In the production of skin creams, various ingredients such as paraffins, hydrocarbons, vegetable fats and oils, and animal waxes are utilized. In order to stabilize the emulsion-like cream structures, emulsifiers are used. Some creams with a high water content need to be preserved for durability. The LEWA diaphragm pumps and systems meter and mix water, alcohols, perfumes, glycerin and other substances necessary for the production of skin cream.
