Personal Care & Hygiene

Manufacturing products that are applied to the body, such as cosmetics, fragrances and shampoo, require myriad testing not only for function but safety. Competition among manufacturers is fierce, as constant improvements are required to stay ahead of cultural trends and consumer demands. The manufacturing cycle is, therefore, intense and short.

The complex process of creating mixtures that will perform well under a variety of conditions — such as meso or micro mixing, crystallization, precipitation and suspension — is best achieved by using fluid dynamics for virtual testing. Such analysis allows product engineers to gather information such as effectiveness, product decomposition and performance under various conditions, which can be difficult to observe through traditional testing methods.

Using ANSYS software tools to predict how a product will hold up under various conditions allows manufacturers to get products to market as efficiently as possible, while meeting customer expectations for the best product at the best price.
