Foams in Cosmetic Products

Foams bring lightness to any product, including cosmetic creams. Rich creams for the ideal sun protection, for faster wound healing or for concealing skin impurities are often very thick and difficult to apply. Either certain skin areas are forgotten or are treated irregularly, or the wound is rubbed even more. In a joint project between the Swiss dispersing equipment manufacturer Kinematica and a test laboratory for cosmetic and pharmaceutical products, the influence of foaming a cream on the application properties was elaborated. The application onto the skin and the absorption into the skin were investigated in detail. The results of the test are interesting for customers and manufacturers.
