Hosokawa Micron harnesses a wealth of powder and particle processing knowledge to create its state-of-the-art equipment and process systems for the cosmetics industry.

The constantly evolving cosmetics industry is an important exponent of powders of all colours and consistencies, producing a wide spectrum of powder-based cosmetics products – including pressed and loose face powders and eye shadows, pressed powder foundations and powder blushers and bronzers.

The requirement for clean beauty products and high-performing micro-fine powder, such as sophisticated mica powder formulations for instant glow and shimmer, is absolutely paramount as market competition increases and the diverse consumer demographic becomes more educated and discerning about the cosmetics they use.

Mineral make-up is one such revolutionary product type that has literally changed the face of the cosmetics industry, offering consumers products made from naturally derived mineral ingredients that have been milled and expertly micronised into a user-friendly, good-for-the-skin powder suitable for all skin types and giving a flawless finish.

Hosokawa Micron is proud to work with the world’s largest cosmetics companies. We have in our portfolio a variety of high-performance processing equipment suitable for the creation of powder-based cosmetics.

Our industry-leading ranges include air classifier mills, cone mills, hammer mills, impact mills, cyclomixers and rubber choppers, as well as containment equipment for the safe handling of powders and solvents during the production process. The equipment is renowned for its ability to process high-grade materials, its excellent build quality and ease of cleaning, harnessing our extensive experience in the cGMP pharmaceutical sector.

Hosokawa Micron smart downflow booths and laminar flow booths for powder and solvent handling can be fitted with our unique, dynamic Hosokawa Gen4 intelligent software, while our range of isolators, gloveboxes, drum handling and filling and weighing systems are perfect for the safe containment of ultra-fine powders, including those comprising nano-size particles.

A means to create new or improved products

For cosmetics development purposes, the compact Mechanofusion AMS equipment offers manufacturers a means to create new or improved products and formulations by enhancing the performance of particles or combining two or more ingredients to create an entirely new product type. Hosokawa Micron’s technical expertise also extends to the development of cosmetics using cryogenics techniques.
