Scale-up in the cosmetic industry

Scientific scale up in the Cosmetic Industry: fact or fiction? Over the last 30 years, the cosmetic industry has moved out of the “black magic” realm and into a far more scientific arena. The methods of scale up have become much more scientific and predictable.

In the cosmetic industry it is imperative that new products get from the bench to manufacturing as quickly as possible. This is the job of the Process Development Engineer and the process is called scale up
The talk will discuss the different aspects of scale up: heat transfer, addition rates and energy input as it pertains to batch size and different equipment.
