Lotion is a low-viscosity topical preparation intended for application to the skin. Most lotions are oil-in-water emulsions using a substance such as cetearyl alcohol to keep the emulsion together, but water-in-oil lotions are also formulated. The key components of a skin care lotion, cream or gel emulsion are the aqueous and oily phases, an emulsifier to prevent separation of these two phases, and, if used, the drug substance or substances.

Our inventory includes liquid fillers, cappers, conveyors and labeling machines that can make sure your lotion product is properly filled and packaged prior to shipping. Lotion is one of the many different liquid products our equipment can fill, maintaining a consistent level of efficiency and accuracy throughout the packaging process.
While a lotion may be used as a medicine delivery system, many lotions, especially hand lotions and body lotions and lotion for allergies are meant instead to simply smooth, moisturize, soften and, sometimes, perfume the skin.
Some skincare products, such as sunscreen and moisturizer, may be available in multiple formats, such as lotions, gels, creams, or sprays.
Most lotions are oil-in-water emulsions using a substance such as cetearyl alcohol to keep the emulsion together, but water-in-oil lotions are also formulated. The key components of a skin care lotion, cream or gel emulsion (that is mixtures of oil and water) are the aqueous and oily phases, an emulsifier to prevent separation of these two phases, and, if used, the drug substance or substances. Various other ingredients such as fragrances, glycerol, petroleum jelly, dyes, preservatives, proteins and stabilizing agents are commonly added to lotions.[From Wiki]
Lotions are generally free flow but sometimes the liquid is thick which need to be sucked. Some lotions loss their viscosity while temperatures change and it becomes so slurry. There are requirement of different types of filling technology, syringes, pumps, hopper, nozzles and holding assembly to handle varieties of liquid and different shaped bottles from 5 ml to 5 ltr pack sizes.
There round, oval, flat, square or special shaped glass or plastic bottles and varieties of plastic caps to pack the lotion. Bottles are labeled with paper sticker or transparent sticker and coded by printer. The printer prints date of manufacturing, expiry date, mrp, code and many more as per requirement.
