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 rheological measurement in these areas of cosmetic production. Rheological measurement was applied at various stages during the development and manufacture of a bath milk, a skin care product and a make-up removing milk. The results of the study showed a significant correlation between the rheological measurement results and that of microscopic observations, sensory evaluations and stability tests. In conclusion, this study proved that rheology is useful in the development and manufacture of cosmetics. © 2010 The Society of Rheology, Japan.
