Hydrokem Aerosols recently achieved accreditation to ISO 22716 Good Manufacturing Practice in cosmetic products. This is an accreditation more usually associated with non-aerosol manufacture and demonstrates the high standards to which cosmetic products are made within the Hydrokem facility.
A team of dedicated quality professionals headed up by the Technical Director ensure that all products are manufactured to the highest standards providing our clients with the first class products and service required by today's markets.
Inspection of incoming components and raw materials is carried out to a strict procedure providing positive confirmation that each item has met the required specification prior to being released to production. Batches of blended concentrates are subjected to a series of chemical and physical tests before being admitted to the filling process. Production line set up is strictly controlled prior to commencing filling and half hourly checks of many variable parameters are made throughout the filling run.
Once completed a further check is carried out on the finished goods prior to release to transport for delivery to the client.
Records of all raw materials and components used in a particular production run are maintained for a period of not less than 5 years. Samples of produced items are held for a period of two years after which each one is analysed to establish any trends in the life cycle of the product.
