Skin Care

For the production of skin care products such as creams, lotions, ointments, gels and scrubs – manufacturers require highly efficient, utterly trustworthy and reproducible process solutions.

As well as being hygienic, today’s processing equipment needs to be adaptable to changing market demands and provide a secure platform for innovation that allows customers to develop new products and bring them to market securely and quickly. GEA technologies and solutions give the industry the freedom to develop new and exciting products with natural ingredients, combined with the confidence to manage scarce resources, minimize waste, and deliver sustainable manufacturing solutions not just today, but for the future.

Calling upon its years of experience in handling difficult applications — such as those involving hazardous, flammable or viscous products — GEA can find the right solutions for your specific application, keeping costs under control and achieving the fastest possible time to market. 

Key considerations to address when manufacturing skin care products is the safety of the ingredients involved and the risk of bacterial contamination. GEA’s process engineers are experts at dealing with these issues; our technologies and know-how can help you to reduce the risk of introducing bacterial contamination when producing emollients and moisturizers, for example, whilst also maintaining product safety. But it’s not sufficient simply to keep up with current good practices. At GEA, we believe that it is our responsibility to seek the most effective solution in terms of price-performance leadership, sustainability and operational risk. Our expertise includes, among others:

  • reception and storage of raw materials
  • distribution and dosing of raw materials
  • mixing technology with buffer tanks
  • homogenization systems
  • product storage in bulk tanks
  • transfer lines to tanks and filling lines
  • distribution of utilities such as water, air and steam
  • clean-in-place (CIP) systems, automation and process control
