Establishing manufacturing processes, skin effects, texture and preventing problems with stability are all integral in the development and manufacture of cosmetics. The aim of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of rheology in establishing manufacturing processes for cleansing milk. We used rheological measurements in order to distinguish the physical properties of products with defective texture from those that were acceptable. We then compared the rheological properties of an acceptable product to those that had been produced by different manufacturing methods. From a correlation between the rheological properties and the manufacturing methods, we finally identified the factors that caused the product to have defective texture allowing the establishment of a suitable manufacturing process. In conclusion, this study proved that rheological measurement is useful in establishing manufacturing processes for cleansing milk.
