Lotions/Chemicals

For cosmetic, cleaning or disinfection products we develop and formulate the wetting lotions according to your needs. In addition, we have an ultra-modern piping system at our disposal, which offers high process reliability and reduces chemical cleaning through the use of rocking and steam. This enables us to change products quickly between different procedures. We have a chemical-physical and a microbiological laboratory at our disposal. New formulations are tested externally as standard in a preservative stress test and in a dermatological test. 

Selection of raw materials:

  • Softened water or deionised water
  • Alcohol for cleaning or disinfection purposes is denatured according to the product requirement
  • Surface-active ingredients
  • Perfumes are evaluated according to IFRA standard and according to the cosmetic directive EC/1223/2009 on allergen ingredients
  • Plant extracts (chamomile, aloe vera, calendula, cucumber,hamamelis, etc.)
  • Active ingredients (vitamins, panthenol, allantoin, emollients, jojoba oil, olive oil, etc.)
  • Preservatives and anti-microbial ingredients

When selecting raw materials, ecological criteria such as biodegradability, environmental and skin compatibility (Öko-Test, BDIH, etc.) are taken into account. The raw materials are used according to the application in cosmetic, food, pharmaceutical (Ph.Eur.) or also technical quality. The quality is always ordered with the highest required standard. As a downstream user, we communicate with our suppliers to ensure REACH conformity.
