Make-up, lotion, perfume, shampoo, soap, gel and wax are all types of cosmetic products that have to comply with some of the strictest international standards within materials testing. In order to become a success, cosmetic products have to look appealing to the consumer, be easy to use as well as having exactly the right texture. By performing a texture analysis on your cosmetic product, it is easy to determine whether the powder is too compact, the shampoo is too thick or if the lipstick will break too easily when applied by your customers. Spreadability, firmness, stickiness, extrudability, break strength and compaction strength are some of the most common test types performed within cosmetics testing, while compression strength, peel strength and actuation force of pumps and sprays are some of the most common test types when testing cosmetic containers and packaging.
