Unlocking the Power of Water Activity in Cosmetics

Cosmetics and Pharma

If someone were to ask you what blush, eyeliner and lotion all had in common, chances are your first answer wouldn’t be water.

Moisture content is only the beginning.

While it is useful, it can’t control qualities like texture, microbial safety, migration potential, and chemical deterioration. That’s where water activity – our specialty – comes in handy. 

Add a little AQUALAB. With an AQUALAB on your bench, you’ll have valuable formulation and QC insights at your fingertips anytime.
