Face powder

Face powder is one of many applications for Hosokawa Micron’s processing technologies and is a product that is produced all over the world by well-known names. These producers have developed complex formulae to satisfy the efficiency and quality demands from a broad end user group, which in turn, puts pressure on their demands for high-quality manufacturing. Important aspects here are texture & application, colour consistency, minimum product loss and easy cleaning.

Mixing powders with the Cyclomix

The Cyclomix can produce face powders in homogeneous, lump-free batches by spraying continuously from its central spray nozzle and rotating at variable rotor speeds of 3 - 30 m/s, including low speeds gentle enough for mixing fragile or heat-sensitive components. The Cyclomix disperses pigments thoroughly and does not over-wet the mixture, eliminating the risk of lumps and the need for additional milling. This unique combination minimises product losses and helps avoid downtime for cleaning.

Milling and micronising face powder

Powders form a considerable part of the base materials needed for cosmetics. The production of these powders requires milling and micronising, which is a specialism of Hosokawa Alpine. Hosokawa Alpine has established itself as an expert in dry powder processing and supplies complete systems for the formulation of powdery cosmetics. This includes systems for fine grinding of dry raw and base materials and the micronising of face powder. To learn more, please visit the website of Hosokawa Alpine.
