Mixer applications in cosmetic manufacturing

amixon®mixing machines are used wherever bulk dry ingredients are processed to create uniform blends. In cosmetic manufacturing, our mixing equipment is used to create the following products, among others:

  • Make-up powders – blush, foundation, highlighter, bronzer, eye shadow, etc.
  • Hygiene – baby powder, dry shampoo, deodorant powder, body powders, etc.
  • Pigment cosmetic premixes – for lipsticks, mascaras, etc.
  • Premixes for skincare formulas – for anti-aging creams, face lotions, masks and peels, etc.

Powder-based cosmetics have a challenging job to fulfil: they need to be easy to apply and provide even, long-lasting coverage without feeling sticky or suffocating on the skin. They also must be shelf-stable and visually appealing, both within their containers and on the skin. They even need to smell good!

From the even distribution of color pigments to obtaining ideal product attributes, amixon® state-of-the-art mixing machines perform a wide range of processing functions that are crucial to the production of high-quality make-up, skincare, hygiene products.

With flexible settings, these cosmetic mixers allow you to fine-tune production on a batch-by-batch, product-by-product basis.

  • Flexible filling levels - Mix at filling levels from as little as 10 percent all the way to 100 percent
  • Adjustable processing settings - From agglomeration to coating, gentle homogenization to intensive dispersal, a single mixer can perform several different processing functions
  • Precision premixing- Expertly blend your most expensive, delicate ingredients together before evenly homogenizing them with bulk materials.
  • Simplified cleaning & compliance - Our cosmetic mixing equipment is designed in accordance with EHEDG, FDA, and GMP standards. They are free of dead space and equipped with large, ergonomic doors that give you full access to the mixing chamber. Proprietary ComDisc® technology leaves virtually no product behind in the mixer.

Highlights of our cosmetic manufacturing equipment

Accelerated time to market

When new or improved cosmetic formulas are developed in labs, a key challenge lies in scaling the volume for the manufacturing floor while keeping the number of processing steps and machine changeovers as low as possible.

When adjusting existing formulas to replace certain ingredients or modify colors, even slight tweaks can be tricky to get right without adversely affecting product quality.

Quickly bringing new and improved cosmetics to market with flexible processing equipment. The HM twin shaft mixer from amixon® is able to accommodate highly variable materials and production conditions, increasing the agility with which manufacturers can launch new powdered cosmetic formulas.

Thermo-pneumatic sterilization

Especially when developing cosmetics from plant-based ingredients and other organic materials, it is crucial to eliminate naturally occurring microorganisms to create a shelf-stable product.

3-in-1 mixers, reactors, and vacuum dryers from amixon® can be used to sterilize organic powders while only subjecting the ingredients to minimal thermal stress. The resulting mixture is perfectly dry and homogenous with a dramatically lowered microbial count.

Clean Beauty and Ingredient Transparency

Rising demand for ingredient transparency, natural products, and more strenuous regulatory standards call upon cosmetics manufacturers to take extra measures to prevent contamination and ensure product quality and consistency.

Especially for cosmetic products composed largely of dry, powdery ingredients, hygienic mixing equipment plays a crucial role in achieving success in this new era of beauty.
