Mischen neuer Formulierungen für Kosmetika


It’s all in the mix:

Mixing new formulations for cosmetics with the Hauschild SpeedMixer®

When mixing cosmetic products, research and development work has been relying on a device worldwide since 1974 that already bears its key advantage in its name: The original “Hauschild SpeedMixer®” enables the production of homogeneous multi-material compounds such as liquids, highly viscous pastes, and powders in just a few minutes thanks to a sophisticated mixing technique. At the German company Cosmacon, too, Hauschild SpeedMixers® are at work in the development, formulation, and creation of frame formulations of cosmetics and natural cosmetics to achieve perfect mixing results.

Hamm/Detroit. April 2022. – The success of a cosmetic product depends essentially on the formula. No matter how clever and well thought-out the marketing strategy may be, without the right composition the product will be a shelf warmer. Marketing measures and formulations must be optimally coordinated for successful market launches. At Cosmacon, the latest findings from research, science, and practice as well as years of experience are all incorporated into the formulations so that the products will also deliver what marketing promises.

The selection of raw materials and ingredients is the most important foundation of any newly created care or cosmetic products. The quality of the raw materials as well as the active ingredients employed have a decisive influence on the shelf life of a product, its mode of action and efficiency. Cosmacon sources raw materials from selected suppliers around the world. Thanks to its long-standing, trust-based relationships with suppliers, the company is able to guarantee the highest level of quality in terms of raw materials.

Once the basic ingredients of a new formula have been determined, they must be prepared and mixed so that they act with optimum consistency in the final product.

Cosmacon relies on the technology and market leader in laboratory mixing equipment: the Hauschild SpeedMixer®. The possible applications of this centrifugal mixer are as multifaceted as the product world itself: Different liquids and pastes, pastes with powders, powders with powders and other combinations of liquids and powders can be mixed. Materials with different chemical and physical properties can also be mixed to create new products: Oils, gels, emulsions, creams, lotions, powders … the list is endless.

  • Rapid and reproducible mixing results

As Fabio Boccola, Managing Director of Hauschild GmbH & Co KG explains: “In our fast-paced times, manufacturers must constantly position product improvements or innovations on the markets. It is often the smallest changes that make a difference: A new scent in a lotion, a new taste in lipstick, more shine from a shampoo, creams that absorb faster, etc. All this development work takes place in the laboratory. The formula is changed, new components are added to test what this does to the product. The faster the result is at hand, the more effective this process will be. Thanks to its extremely fast mixing, our Hauschild SpeedMixer® shortens product the development, analysis and quality assurance process in the laboratory tremendously.”

Das Erfolgsgeheimnis: Nutzung der Fliehkräfte

Die DAC-Technologie ist der Schlüssel zum Erfolg. DAC steht für Dual Asymmetric Centrifuge und ist auch der Namensgeber für die Hauschild SpeedMixer® Produktreihe. Das Besondere an diesem Mischprinzip ist die doppelte Rotation des Mischbechers. Die Kombination von Fliehkräften, die in unterschiedlichen Ebenen wirken, ermöglicht einen äußerst effizienten Mischprozess, der sich durch ein homogenes Ergebnis auszeichnet - ohne den Einsatz von Rührwerkzeugen. Dabei wird bereits während des Mischvorgangs eine nahezu 100-prozentige Entgasung erreicht, die selbst kleinste Mikrobläschen entfernt. Ein zusätzlicher Entgasungszyklus ist nicht erforderlich. Für die vollständige Entgasung steht der Hauschild SpeedMixer® mit Vakuumtechnik zur Verfügung. Programmierbare Zyklen gewährleisten eine absolut identische, reproduzierbare Mischung jeder Charge und führen zu einer erheblichen Beschleunigung des Entwicklungsprozesses.

Mixed – not stirred

Der Hauschild SpeedMixer® mischt ohne Rührwerkzeuge in Einwegbechern, wodurch die Reinigung und der zusätzliche Einsatz von Chemikalien komplett entfallen. Die Abmessungen der Mischbecher und Mischeimer reichen von wenigen Gramm bis zu zehn Kilogramm und von wenigen Millilitern bis zu 16 Litern Nenninhalt - je nachdem, wie groß die Charge sein soll.

Highly viscous starting materials must also be dispersed at Cosmacon before further processing. For this purpose, companies that do not work with the Hauschild SpeedMixer® often need three roller mills, paddle mixers, kneading machines or dissolvers. While the use of these devices not only requires a lot of time as such, cleaning and refilling them is also time-consuming.

Thanks to the use of the Hauschild SpeedMixer® Cosmacon can massively reduce mixing times in most cases. Cleaning routines of stirrers are completely eliminated, and many samples can be mixed and tested in a relatively short period of time.

Rainer Kröpke, Managing Director of Cosmacon GmbH, explains:

“The technology of the Hauschild SpeedMixer® makes it possible to screen raw materials and active ingredients and carry out series tests in a very short span of time. This enables us as developers to gain an overview of the potential of a new raw material in a very short time. In addition, the Hauschild SpeedMixer® is excellent for individual products, because it provides practically every customer with their own, specially mixed product.”
