LESSONIA, powder expert, invests in a new dry granulationtechnology
Lessonia has always been specialized in the manufacture of powder cosmetic ingredients (exfoliants, fine powders, active ingredients, extracts…). From grinding and sieving to blending and sterilizing powders, Lessonia has acquired renowned expertise in its area.
Gradually, the company has developed expertise in dry cosmetic formulation (clay masks, peel-offs, scrubs, cleansing powders…) and is constantly innovating to meet the powder cosmetic challenges.
The dry cosmetic formulation involves using and mixing fine powder ingredients with different particle sizes leading to untangling, flow problems and powder safety issues (dust). It was therefore essential for Lessonia to find a technical solution to improve powder flowability and avoid dust.
That’s why Lessonia decided to innovate with a dry granulation technology, equipping itself with a new production line comprising a roller compactor, granulator and sieve. From a fine powder, the aim is to obtain a larger and more homogeneous granulometry, optimized to ensure good powder flow.
HOW DOES IT WORK ? By compacting a fine powder, we obtain a fine tablet which is then grinded and sieved to obtain the desired particle size.
A PHARMACEUTICAL TECHNOLOGY INSIGHT Lessonia has been inspired by pharmaceutical and tablet industry to find this new idea. In the pharmaceutical sector, granulation technology is the first step in tablet manufacture. Already equipped with a rotary tablet press in 2022, importing this technology to Lessonia seemed a natural way of improving the quality of its tablets.
AN INVESTMENT OF 400,000€ FOR NEW PROSPECTIVES This equipment enables Lessonia to innovate and meet the challenges of the powder cosmetics market. It also enables Lessonia to expand its range of services for manufacturers looking for solutions such as this one. A preliminary feasibility study on compacting their formula will however be essential before starting the granulation process. With this new 400,000€ investment, Lessonia’s future looks bright.
