Cosmetics and OTC formulations

Cosmetics

Analyze raw materials to finished products

The need for chemical analysis of food and cosmetics has increased in recent years. Increased emphasis in industry, and by the government, on safety, efficacy and content labeling are the core drivers. Near line monitoring during the production process also affords long-term cost savings from decreased waste, rework and materials costs. The United States (FDA), European Union and various other regulatory bodies around the world strictly regulate the allowable concentrations of heavy metal contaminants in foodstuffs, drugs, and cosmetics. In addition, much commercial food production requires careful monitoring of salt concentrations to ensure correct flavor characteristics. Cosmetics that use metal oxides for sunscreen protection factor (SPF) enhancement must have 100% quality inspection to meet U.S. over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceutical regulations. Packaging must also be monitored for contaminants that may leach into products. To aid in the understanding of certain aspects of cosmetics' chemistry, Rigaku makes a range of X-ray fluorescence (XRF for elemental analysis) and X-ray diffraction (XRD for phase and structural analysis) instruments for both research and production applications. Our small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) instruments are the perfect solution for particle size analysis of optically opaque formulations.

Handheld Material Analysis 

The Rigaku Progeny 1064 nm handheld Raman analyzer transforms material analysis for cosmetic manufacturing companies by integrating the most versatile tool into existing workflows. Progeny utilizes 1064 nm-based Raman spectroscopy enabling accurate analysis of colored materials through packaging for raw material identification (RMID), verification of finished products, or authentication for anti-counterfeit prevention.
