Preview of 2019 Conference: Accelerated galenic stability measurement of cosmetic formulations

Dr. Richard Lehmann,  Bio-Chemisches Laboratorium Dr. Lehmann GmbH & Co. KG:...By using the STEP-Technology, as implemented in the LUMiFuge and LUMiSizer devices, we have developed methods that allow significant acceleration of the development- or improvement-process of cosmetic emulsion products. 

Data will be given for typical cases like thermal stability, stabilizing effect of structural gel-formation, upscaling phenomena, influence of new preservative systems, evaluation of comparable raw materials with respect to the total galenic stability....
