Microfluidics in Cosmetics

Droplet-based microfluidics

Droplet-based microfluidics offers many advantages for cosmetic products. As reagents are encapsulated within a droplet, active ingredients can be preserved up to the moment of application. Droplets  do not burst until they are applied directly to the skin, providing a sensory experience and more efficient moisturization.

High monodispersity

Microfluidics offers high control over droplet size, formulation, and aesthetics (colors, pigments) while providing unmatched monodispersity compared to traditional batch methods. Manufacturers can develop custom products with visual and sensory feels specific to their brand.

Expertise & resources

Looking for another market?

From the life sciences to the food industry, many applications require the use of fluids driven at flow rates from nanoliters to milliliters per minute. At such low flows, the success of these applications strongly depends on the level of control and automation of the fluidic operations.

These applications require flow control systems that are adapted for ensuring their success.
