Contamination: The Risk to the Personal Care & Cosmetic Industry
The interest and demand for products like skincare, creams, lotions, haircare, and other beauty and anti-aging items has created rapid growth in manufacturing. Whether processing ingredients or the final packaged product for the end-user, safe and clean operations within facilities are vital. In an extremely competitive industry, consumers demand purity and the highest quality when choosing a brand.
Some of the most common types of contamination found in personal care item production include heavy metals, microbial contaminants, residual solvents, foreign matter, and residues from cleaning chemicals. Because most products are applied directly or near the skin, the presence of contamination in a cosmetic item can lead to costly product recalls, as well as more significant effects such as life-threatening illnesses and legal action.
The risks to a company’s brand, its profitability, and its people are too consequential to be ignored. Effective contamination control is essential for facilities to minimize these harmful outcomes.
Dycem antimicrobial mats, implemented as part of a contamination control strategy, offer optimal support in reducing the risk of contamination.
Don't Ignore the Floor...
80% of Contamination Enters a Critical Space at Floor Level.
Benefits of Dycem in Personal Care & Cosmetic Manufacturing
superior particle collection & retention
Both visible and invisible particles carried on shoes and wheels are captured on Dycem mats and remain on the surface until cleaned off. Floor-level contamination can be reduced by up to 99.9% and airborne contaminants can decrease by up to 75%.
Reduced microbial contamination concerns
With Dycem mats installed prior to critical areas, cosmetics manufacturers and packagers have peace of mind that damage from microbial contamination is minimized. All Dycem products contain Polygiene BioMaster, an active antimicrobial additive.
cost-effective, sustainable alternative
Unlike common disposable contamination control solutions, Dycem mats last on average 3+ years. Personal care manufacturers quickly see ROI after installation, as well as the added benefit of a reduced carbon footprint due to less plastic waste.
