Cosmetic Processing

Creams, gels and paste


The cosmetics market offers a wide range of creams and gels designed to address various skincare and beauty needs. These products come in different formulations, ingredients, and target specific skin concerns. Some of the most common types of cosmetic creams and gels are: creams and lotions designed to hydrate the skin and maintain its moisture balance; anti-aging creams serums; acne treatment gels and creams; sunscreen lotions and gels to protect the skin from the harmful effects of UV radiation; eye creams, designed to target the delicate skin around the eyes; brightening and whitening creams; hydrogel masks, sheets infused with serums or essences; body lotions, creams and muds; hair removal creams and gels; toothpaste; veterinary paste.

All these products may vary in texture, from lightweight lotions with low viscosity to thicker creams like muds or toothpaste, resulting in different critical aspects to take into consideration when designing and engineering the manufacturing equipment for their production.

Over its 75 years in operation, Olsa has cultivated extensive expertise in numerous cosmetic processes, establishing ourselves as a trusted partner for leading cosmetic companies across the world. We specialize in delivering fully customized, high-performance equipment through our proprietary design and recipe management systems, ensuring a significant reduction in production time and CIP (Clean-In-Place) cycles. This approach not only enhances efficiency, but it also minimizes water discharges and waste.

Our versatile mixing equipment (vacuum mixer homogenizers) is available in sizes ranging from 5 liters to 20,000 liters, catering to a wide range of production needs from laboratory to industrial production. We also provide CIP/SIP skids and TCUs.

Olsa can supply starting from stand-alone units up to very complex platforms with several vacuum mixer homogenizers, side kettles, storage vessels, process piping, valves racks, pumps and integrating even technologies not directly produced by us, like vacuum pumps, lifting systems, etc... providing a package fully integrated.

Thanks to the synergy with MGA (Masco Group Automation), Olsa can provide an automation package to guarantee process control and related reporting.
