Cosmetic Creams are often semi-solid emulsions of oil and water. Cosmetic Creams contain special ingredients that help to replace the oils contained in the skin or to protect against the loss of moisture from the skin.
Cosmetic Creams are among the more viscous substances that our liquid filling machinery is capable of handling. For a selection of cosmetic cream filling machines that can provide years of reliability in both efficiency and integrity, consider purchasing machinery from VKPAK. We offer a variety of liquid fillers, capping machines, labeling equipment, and conveyors. A facility utilizing a combination of this equipment can keep all liquid packaging processes consistently profitable.
Creams are semi-solid emulsions of oil and water. They are divided into two types: oil-in-water creams which are composed of small droplets of oil dispersed in a continuous water phase, and water-in-oil creams which are composed of small droplets of water dispersed in a continuous oily phase. Oil-in-water creams are more comfortable and cosmetically acceptable as they are less greasy and more easily washed off using water. Water-in-oil creams are more difficult to handle but many drugs which are incorporated into creams are hydrophobic and will be released more readily from a water-in-oil cream than an oil-in-water cream. Water-in-oil creams are also more moisturising as they provide an oily barrier which reduces water loss from the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the skin.[From Wiki]
First of all, if the container of the cosmetic cream is a plastic tube or laminated tube, VKPAK recommends using our tube filling and sealing machine, which is specially designed for liquid tube packaging and is perfect for filling cosmetic cream.
Finally, for cosmetic creams with larger bottles, you can also consider using a linear piston filling machine.
Both pump filling machines and piston fillers can handle thicker viscosities with ease. Pump filling machines allow for flexibility by matching the pump to the actual cream being filled. An accurate volumetric fill can be achieved using either a time-based system or a pulse based system. Time based systems simply fill for the chosen amount of time, while pulse based will be measured by some function of the pump. For example, a pulse for a gear pump may be a quarter, half or full turn of the gear.
Piston fillers also work with higher viscosity creams, and may be the best choice for the thickest of liquids. Also a volumetric fill, the piston simply retracts to allow product in to the cylinder, then pushes product in to waiting bottles when it returns to the cylinder. Piston fillers can also handle both thin and thick liquids, which can make the machine the ideal solution for companies packaging a range of creams.
Configure A Custom Cosmetic Cream Production Line
Like other types of liquid products, creams require production line configurations that work best with them specifically. Depending on the type of cosmetic cream product and its packaging requirements, we can help you design and implement a customized liquid packaging line that gives your facility the results you want from liquid packaging processes. We offer size and setup options that can meet the individual requirements of your application, and assist with the implementation process.
If you would like to speak with a liquid packaging expert who can help you get started on the design and implementation of your cosmetic cream filling equipment system, contact VKPAK. Once you have installed your custom liquid packaging configuration, we offer additional services to help you maintain your production line for many years.
