Cosmetics & personal care
New products result in quality assurance and analysis challenges which must meet ever more stringent safety specifications and regulatory standards. With increased consumer awareness regarding the contents and safety of the products they use, manufacturers have even more reasons to be mindful of the composition of their products and supply chains.
PANalytical technologies, X-ray fluorescence (XRF), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and near-infrared (NIR) are used routinely for research, contract laboratories and in regulatory agencies, as well as for quality assurance and quality control in industry.
Typical applications include
- Rapid material screening and identification
- Production line blending control
- Heavy metal limit testing and quantification
- Mineral identification and polymorph screening
- Nanomaterial research and control
- Product authenticity identification
Ensuring product safety
PANalytical provides analytical solutions that can improve cosmetic research and manufacturing quality, reduce costs and limit product liability often associated with personal care products. Robust instruments that are easy to use for elemental and phase analysis, NIR, XRF and XRD are ideal for quality control. Both NIR and XRF provide rapid screening for quality control, making it ideal for ensuring product safety of personal care items.
