PTL analyzes many different products for the beauty and cosmetic industry including make-up, moisturizers, powders, sunscreens, lotions and creams, and many more. Cosmetic products contain particulate and emulsions that require specific distributions for coverage and other desired performance. Particulate also affects the appearance, stability, and protection value of different products including sunscreen.

Particle size and characterization analysis allows manufacturers in the beauty and cosmetic industry to develop products that meet regulated specifications and reach their standards for a quality product. Knowing the particle size and shape of ingredients determines the quality, properties and performance of their final products.
