Although not all women use makeup every day, almost all of them own at least one makeup product, be it lipstick or face powder. Most makeup products share the same basic ingredients of waxes, oils, and fillers with pigments like iron oxide used for colors and shades. Makeup manufacturing equipment includes pulverizers, mixers, and mechanical press machines to produce cosmetic products in different forms such as powder, liquid, or mousse.

From lipstick to mascara – makeup manufacturing equipment in production lines

Makeup manufacturing process requires the use of multiple makeup manufacturing equipment. Grinders and pulverizers mill ingredients into fine sizes before blending them with other elements. Mixers and temperature-controlled tanks with agitators can help you maintain the texture and structural integrity of the product. The amount of the ingredients and how well it is mixed will give your makeup product its distinct properties such as covering power, absorption or adhesiveness. Equipment and ingredients obviously change based on the product you’re making.

For instance, in the case of compacted powder, the final mixture is compacted using a mechanical pressing machine to form a “cake” structure in containers. Lipsticks and mascaras are produced from a mixture of waxes, oils, and pigments. Eyeshadow relies on pigments, fillers, and binders to form its structure and hold its place when applied. Makeup products are also mixed with preservatives to have a longer life and to prevent them from deteriorating quickly.

Regulations in cosmetic industry

Regulations for cosmetics are based on the safety of consumers, but they vary from country to country. In the EU, the regulations are more stringent. The products go through safety assessments and there are more chemical ingredients that are prohibited for use compared to the list in US regulations. Some chemicals like lead and parabens are banned in Europe but are not banned in the US.

Chemical ingredients that are found or suspected to cause cancer, irritation, birth defects, or mutations are strictly prohibited. Aside from a list of chemical ingredients that are prohibited, cosmetic manufacturers are required to indicate details of the product such as ingredients, manufacturer contact details, country of origin, legal compliance, net quantity of the product, etc. in their product label.

Mineral-based makeup – is it the same as organic makeup?

Mineral makeup has been making a splash in recent years. That’s because there’s a trend to look for products that are increasingly safe and chemical-free. The problem is that people assume that the word mineral means organic and natural. Half-truth. It is natural but it is not organic. Mineral-based and organic makeup come both from natural ingredients. The difference is that mineral makeup doesn’t contain anything that is plant or animal based. It is made from naturally occurring minerals like zinc or titanium dioxide that are micronized, or ground and milled to produce the powders necessary for the formulation of the product. Organic makeup instead, is made primarily from carbon-based ingredients like plants that are grown without any pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides.

As for chemical ingredients, mineral makeup contains fewer chemicals than regular makeups. But that doesn’t mean they are always completely chemical-free. Especially if these products are in liquid form, they may contain paraben preservatives. Also, not all minerals are good even if they are pure and natural; for example, some mineral makeup companies have started removing a mineral called bismuth oxychloride because it may be dangerous to some people.
