Beauty and Cosmetic

PTL analyzes many different products in the beauty and cosmetic industry including make-up, moisturizers, powders, sunscreens, lotions and creams just to name a few. Cosmetic products contain particulate and emulsions that require specific distributions for coverage and other desired performance. Particulate also affects the appearance, stability and protection value of different products including sunscreen. 

Particle size and characterization analysis allows manufacturers in the beauty and cosmetic industry to develop products that meet regulated specifications and reach their standards to achieve a quality product. Knowing the particle size and shape of ingredients determines the quality, properties and performance of their final products.
