Cosmetic and personal care products such as shampoos, hair conditioners, foundations, etc are all complex fluid based products with surfactants, polymers, emulsions contributing to a large proportion of the sensory and functional benefits of these products. These material types can exhibit complex behavior undergoing self-assembly, exhibiting surface activity and interactions with other formulation ingredients, exhibiting non-newtonian flow behaviour etc. These complex behaviors can lead to issues and challenges in various processing steps such as instabilities in pipe flow, heterogeneity in mixing due to non-newtonian behaviour and presence of an yield stress etc. This talk will highlight some of these challenges and routes to potentially optimize processing of these type of products.
