To sum up, the procurement of raw materials for skin care products is a process that requires careful selection and effective management. Skincare companies should work with reliable suppliers to ensure the quality, safety, and sustainability of raw materials. Only in this way can high-quality skin care products be produced, meet consumers’ needs for safety and efficacy, and promote the sustainable development of the industry.
Storage of raw materials, auxiliary materials, and packaging materials: To use the freshest and most high-quality raw materials and minimize the inventory, the inventory will be sorted out every day/week/month, and the expired raw materials will be scrapped directly within the company. The same is true for packaging materials, through regular and quantitative supply management, to prevent poor quality due to oversupply, and at the same time, a small amount of supply can ensure freshness.
Inspection: Raw material inspection includes color, fragrance, use feeling, and other appearance inspection, as well as microbial detection to prevent microbial contamination. At the same time, a variety of testing machines are used to check the ingredient content, color, viscosity, hardness, etc. of raw materials. Qualitative check. The inspection of packaging materials is mainly to check the connection status and appearance of the connection parts, as well as the size, color, and surface inspection of the appearance, and to perform nozzle performance tests, leakage and durability, and peeling tests for nozzle packaging materials. This test is to recheck the raw materials/packaging materials that have already been inspected, so the quality of raw materials/packaging materials can be thoroughly ensured.
Raw material measurement: To manufacture product contents, it is necessary to measure raw materials according to the characteristics of each product. The measurement of raw materials is controlled by a computer system. The type and content of raw materials are accurately measured by the control program, and the measurement results will be recorded in the data database. And after the measurement, the detailed measurement information will be made into a barcode and pasted to record the detailed information of the raw material management.
Emulsification: After the raw material is measured, it will be confirmed again by barcode scanning, and then the raw material will be put into the manufacturing pot and the production will officially start. The production process of cosmetics generally includes processes such as dissolving, emulsifying, dispersing, holding, cooling, and filtering. For nano-type products, in addition to the above-mentioned processes, a process of converting particles into nano-sized ones will be added. Such a coherent cosmetic manufacturing procedure is carried out under the control of the manufacturing management procedure, and high-quality products are produced through such a control procedure.
Canning: To remove foreign material from the supply container, the container will be dry-cleaned with an air-cleaning dust collector. Usually automated equipment.
Microbial testing: Microbial testing is the basic link in thoroughly ensuring product quality. It not only conducts microbial testing on raw materials/products, but also controls the microorganisms in the air and on the human body in the production/packaging workshop, and considers/solves the problems when customers use them in advance. Problems that may occur and enhance customer trust. Microbiological inspection mainly includes the following stages, and the products shipped through such inspections will be qualified (raw materials/contents/products).
Finished product inspection (appearance inspection): To check the quality of finished and semi-finished products, appearance inspectors will directly use and judge from the perspective of consumers in terms of color, fragrance, usability, design, etc. According to our company’s delivery control system, in addition to the physical and chemical tests must be qualified, the appearance inspection results must also be qualified before they can be released.
The quality control of skin care products production is an important link to ensure that the products meet the standards and requirements. The following are some common quality control measures and methods:
Raw material inspection: During the production process, raw material inspection and evaluation are carried out. Through the testing and analysis of raw materials, it is ensured that they meet relevant quality standards and safety requirements. This includes verification of composition, purity, stability, and traceability, among other things.
Production process monitoring: comprehensive monitoring and recording of the production process. This includes monitoring parameters, temperature, pressure, time, etc. of each critical step. Monitoring the production process can detect potential problems in time to ensure product consistency and stability.
Finished product inspection: inspect the finished product produced. This includes testing the finished product for appearance, texture, pH, content, and microbiological quality. A finished product inspection can verify whether the product meets the specified standards and quality requirements.
Sample retention: During the production process, a certain number of samples are retained for later testing and verification. During the sample retention period, the quality and stability of the product are monitored to ensure that no quality problems occur during storage.
Quality management system: Establish and implement a quality management system, including formulating quality control standards, processes, and documents. This ensures the effective implementation of quality control measures and provides the guidance and framework for quality management.
Internal audits and assessments: Regular internal audits and assessments are conducted to ensure the effectiveness and compliance of quality control measures. Internal audits can identify problems and opportunities for improvement, and continuously improve the level of quality management.
External certification and monitoring: Cooperate with relevant certification bodies to carry out external certification and monitoring. Increase consumer trust and recognition by obtaining certification and complying with relevant standards, demonstrating the quality and conformity of products.
