Do you know how to make liquid type cosmetics in cosmetic factory?
Cosmetics are available in a variety of forms and their viscosity varies accordingly. Therefore, the manufacturing process of the cosmetics and the machines used will also depend on the type of cosmetics.
The following is a process for manufacturing liquid products such as skin lotions among various kinds of cosmetics, which is almost the same as the process for manufacturing general water soap(liquid soap).
When manufacturing a water bottle using a machine, it usually goes through the process of 'Mixing → Filling → Packing'. There are many kinds of machines used in each process, but the most common machines are as follows.
The machine used to manufacture cosmetics depends on the viscosity of the product. The stirrer shown below is a general liquid stirrer used for low viscosity products and is relatively inexpensive. However, in the case of products with high viscosity, the following stirrer can not be used and the price is also extremely high.
The following types of stirrers are used to mix raw materials when manufacturing liquid cosmetics. Most of them are made of double-layered structure and do not directly heat the contents when the product is heated. Because the heating temperature and the rotation speed of the agitator can be adjusted, it can be adjusted according to the characteristics of the product. Generally, the stirrer used in cosmetics manufacturing is made of stainless steel and can be manufactured in various sizes according to user's requirement.
The process of filling the stirred product into each container is referred to as filling. Similarly, the filling machine to be used varies depending on the viscosity of the product. Manual work can be economical if the product is manufactured in a small quantity, but it is also almost impossible to accurately hold a certain amount of time in addition to the time consuming.
However, using a filler reduces manpower and time, and allows accurate work. The picture below is a machine called a rotary filling machine, especially for tubular products.
Closing the cap of the product container is referred to as capping, which can also be done by hand, but it saves time and manpower by using the machine. The capper may not necessarily be used because it depends on the function of the filling machine and the container of the product. The picture below shows that the capper is automatically aligned with the capper after the filled container is moved on the conveyor with the automatic capper.
Packaging work may vary considerably depending on the product. However, in most cases box packaging is common, and in some cases, sealing packaging is also available.
South Korea is one of the best countries to make high quality cosmetics. If you are interested in cosmetic business, feel free to contact me!
