The transformation of raw materials into finished products is a rather complex and interesting process at the same time. It begins with the preparation of the premises and equipment, instructing the staff, hanging the ingredients in accordance with the recipe. The creamy texture characteristic of most types of cosmetics is formed in reactors. First, water is poured into them and heated, and then, according to the technical map, ingredients are added. The solid components are melted and mixed in the fat furnace boiler for their sequential supply to the reactor and connection with the water component. Then the resulting cosmetic mass is homogenized, cooled, mixed, unloaded. Samples are transferred to laboratory control. Compliance with the standards of all product indicators is checked – viscosity, color, odor, density, consistency, pH level.
