Personal Care & Cosmetics

Quadro® provides high shear mixers, dispersers and emulsifiers to address your personal care & cosmetics processing challenges.

Personal care & cosmetics processing involves some difficult challenges, including the hydration of thickening and suspending agents, the production of stable emulsions, process hygiene, disintegrating solids, dissolving powders, blending liquids of different viscosities, mixing thickeners, and adding rheology modifiers and stabilizers. 

Manufacturing cosmetics also involves seamlessly blending colors and fragrances, and creating fine emulsions for creams and lotions. When done right, superior personal care & cosmetics products should suggest flawless ease to the consumer. But behind the scenes, mixing cosmetics is serious business that comes with significant challenges.

Fortunately, Quadro® offers a wide range of mixing technologies and equipment. We partner with you to provide the right mixer and the best solution to meet your needs in this challenging industry. Whether the goal is producing stable, smooth emulsions for makeup or creamy emulsions for hair care, skin care or sunburn protection, we have the cosmetic mixer to get the job done. 

The personal care & cosmetics industry depends on sufficiently sophisticated industrial personal care mixers to achieve products that feature desirable qualities such as uniformity, sensual appeal, shelf stability, pleasing texture, and consistent color and fragrance.


Running the gamut from makeup and shampoo to perfumes, hair dyes, deodorants and mouthwash and important health-preserving products such as sunscreens and sun creams, personal care & cosmetics products are among the most ever-present consumer items. Most are used on a daily basis to help people maintain personal hygiene and boost self-confidence. Some, such as toothpastes and sunscreens, provide important health benefits by preventing the development of negative consequences, such as dental cavities and sunburns.

From a practical standpoint, it’s important to note that many of the products in this broad category are characterized by high-viscosity substances. The need to work with these substances imposes special demands on the cosmetic manufacturing equipment used, as the ingredients involved in creating these products typically resist easy mixing. Some products depend on generating stable emulsions, featuring otherwise immiscible ingredients. 

In virtually all instances, it is desirable to achieve shorter mixing times with less waste if at all possible. With Quadro® Liquids cosmetic manufacturing equipment, it’s not only possible, it’s a given. Our equipment has been carefully engineered to slash mixing times compared to more traditional mixing solutions. It simultaneously minimizes wasteful, time-consuming pitfalls, such as the generation of clumps and fish eyes, and virtually eliminates air entrainment, dust production and waste. 


Efficiency is the goal — and the proper equipment for making cosmetics can help you achieve it. For example, Quadro® Liquids’ industrial personal care mixers minimize undesirable results, such as the development of clumps, lumps and fisheyes, when mixing powders into liquids. Our products also minimize the risk of over-shearing certain ingredients in an effort to achieve uniform consistency and thorough dispersion. We sidestep this risk by significantly improving mixing efficiency from the very start of the mixing process.

Of course, your mixing operations must also be capable of achieving stable emulsions when that’s the goal, as well as minimizing waste and optimizing the ability of operators to clean equipment as needed. Quadro® Liquids is your go-to cosmetics manufacturing equipment supplier, with a full line of superior cosmetics mixers to choose from, including our inline powder disperser, high shear homogenizer and wet mill, and inline emulsifier mixer.

These exceptionally well-engineered machines enable you to achieve consistent, high-quality products while reducing the time spent mixing, This also minimizes energy expenditures. Shorter mixing times translate to lower costs and potentially higher profits. And that’s a beautiful outcome, no matter how you look at it.
