Popular Cream Products for Skincare
Women have always been concerned about preserving and enhancing their beauty through skincare products. The trend has just recently reached the male population as well. Today, women and men alike, are keen on maintaining healthy skin. Creams are an essential part of a good skin care regimen.

But the market is full of cream products that serve different purposes. Mild and natural baby creams, anti-aging creams, brightening creams, serums and spot treatments, there are so many options to choose from that are popular among consumers.
Anti-aging and brightening creams have certainly been the center of attention over the past few decades. Other than those, vitamin-enriched rejuvenating creams and moisturizers suitable for different skin types and climatic conditions are also very popular. There are creams suitable for dry, wintery weather as well as light moisturizers for humid summers. It only makes sense to opt for a supplier that is well-versed in cream manufacturing of various types. This way a wide range of consumers can choose their creams depending on its ingredients and the benefits they are after. The topical application of such creams delivers active ingredients to the skin for combating skin dryness, dullness, and itchiness.
The Complications in Cream Manufacturing
Cream manufacturing is not as simple as it is popular. Creams usually have two phases- the oil phase and a water phase- and can either be water in oil or oil in water emulsion. Other than a few active ingredients dissolved in the water or oil phase, they have several stabilizing, thickening and preserving agents. Making sure that all ingredients sit well with each other and the final texture is quick-absorbing and not gritty takes a lot of skill and expertise on the manufacturer’s part.
Different creams have different formulations and product viscosity. Commonly the dry ingredients or powders are mixed into the oil phase at certain temperatures to ensure proper dissolving. Other ingredients such as stabilizers, emulsifiers, and thickening agents are dissolved in the water phase. The two phases are blended vigorously through a machine to ensure proper mixing and to ensure that the active ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the product. In the absence of state-of-the-art equipment, the formation of emulsion and even distribution of ingredients may be compromised. This can reduce effectiveness and the product will not yield desired results.
