Personal Care

Body Care

As the personal care market continues to expand, consumers are faced with an increasing number of product choices -, often a matter of personal preference - cleaning products such as liquid soap, body washes (with or without particles), creams and lotions are now more popular than traditional solid soap bars and are considered to be an everyday essential.

From pilot skid to industrial-scale solutions, GEA specializes in developing and implementing process plant for the production of liquid, pourable and semi-solid emulsions. Our expansive range of technologies includes standard and customized solutions — each of which can be tailored to meet your individual needs.

Substance parameters such as density (bulk density) and viscosity carry great significance when processing liquid body care and toiletry applications. With GEA’s comprehensive body care production know-how, our mixing and high-pressure homogenization solutions allow for constant product quality. Our experts can also assist with expediting product changeovers and minimizing products loss during recovery, etc.

And with highly repeatable processes comes low operating costs, low energy requirements, rapid production and optimized cleaning times, all of which contribute to the highest levels of operational excellence and quality.
