Lödige as a partner for the
cosmetics industry

In safety, purity and reproducibility, the production of cosmetic products is often very similar to the production of pharmaceuticals. In this context, our specific processing know-how for mixing, drying, granulation and dispersion forms the basis of our innovative system solutions for the cosmetics industry. Customer-oriented design of machines and machine lines is as much part of our services as the development of extensive cleaning systems.

Process reliability and strict adherence to current standards in hygiene are equally important to the design of our machines.

The Lödige test centre provides various solutions for your experiments for process development and achieving a reliable scale-up to machines at a production scale.
