formulas for tomorrow

Areaderma stands out for its ability to propose customized solutions according to customer’s needs, from the formulating development to the finished product. Our Reseach & Development Laboratory can develop almost 450 new formulas in one year, therefore with an average of two formulas per day. We have more than 3,000 active formulas which have been developed upon our partners ‘request, who are operating in Italy and in Europe.

Our strength is to propose innovative and customized technical solutions according to our customers ‘requirements. A high-tech laboratory with skilled personnel, technologies and our passion to find new solutions allow us to put always at first place our customers satisfaction through skilfulness and professionalism. Our distinguishing features are versality and reliability also in the production and packaging process and allow us to follow our customers through all the process of creation of a cosmetic; from the prototype to the finished product.

We are able to follow our customers also with packaging supplied with a contractual work, but also in full service projects, where customers require to find also the primary and the secondary packaging.

our research

Our Research & Development department, together with our Quality Management Department, has always been Areaderma beating heart.

Witness are the numerous cooperation with paramount Italian and European institutes and the numerous research thesis which have been carried out in our plant during these years.

our water

find out more

Areaderma has chosen to use the water of our Trentino mountains, which directly arrives sweet, light and pure.

Furthermore, thanks to our treatment which does not use any preservative or chemical substances, but only very selective micro filters (up to 0.22 micron), no microorganism is able to pass through and we are able to grant a controlled and safe water under a microbiological point of view.

In our continuous analysis on our products, we have never found any traces of Nickel, as it is much lower the sensitization limit of 1 ppm.

our attention

Areaderma proofs its green commitment in several ways: the Certification “100% clean energy Dolomiti Energia”, ECOCERT certifications and ICEA, and the daily commitment of our Research and Development laboratory to use secondary substances (manufacturing remains and waste) coming from Trentino agricultural supply chain, are only some messages of Areaderma daily attention for sustainability, organic and environment.

The main target of this department is to identify new technologies, avantgarde methodologies, modern raw materials and new formulating solutions in order to grant a top technical support to our customers, also conducting the real Research projects.

For example, one of the main focus of our last research was the valorisation of secondary substances (manufacturing remains), coming from the agricultural supply chain in Trentino with cosmetic action to use as antioxidants, natural preservatives and subtractors of free water in an environmental sustainability perspective and 0-kilometer raw materials.

PATENTS

Hydrometer
Application Nr. 102018000005789, registered on 28th May 2018 and application for international extension PCT/IB2019/054024 registered on 15th May 2019.

This is an equipment, able to rapidly measure the density of any liquid, creamy and solid substances reducing the measuring times from more than 10 minutes to a few seconds. It is based on physical principles which have not been applied until today to this kind of equipment and it allows to extraordinarily simplify the analytical method in the laboratory or directly in the production line.

Topical product preferably of natural derivation.
Application Nr. 102019000006884, registered on 16th May 2019.

This is a natural technology referring to the basic structure of a cosmetic formula. It is the result of years of researches in our laboratory to grant the efficacy of our products. In summary, it consists of a particular type of formulating structure which proofs the capacity to accelerate and optimize the absorption in the epidermis of the active substances contained in the same product.

management

Our quality management laboratory carries out analysis along the whole production process, from raw to semi-processed materials until the finished product. This aims at the highest possible quality of products through a careful monitoring of chemical-physical and microbiological parameters.
The target is reached both through the monitoring of the processing documentations (such as analysis certificates, technical safety sheets of raw materials, processing sheets, etc.) and instrumental analysis.

Chemical and physical laboratory

The equipment at hand allows us to carry out the following standard checks: density, pH, viscosity, refraction index, colour survey with colorimeter.

Furthermore, we can check the following: dry residue (with thermoscale), electric conductivity and oxidation of raw materials and semi-processed materials (through Oxytest), packaging endurance (through the empty bell).

We carry out another series of analysis such as: the titration of free water to study the optimization of cosmetic preservation; the dosage of active substances, study of UV-filters stability, preservatives, etc. through HPLC-UV-DAD; identification of raw materials and reception in the warehouse with NIR.
We test the stability of any emulsion through a spin cycle and we carry out the analysis of accelerated stability of semi-processed materials through refrigerating incubators, heaters and thermostat refrigerator for any thermic shocks.

Through consolidated cooperation and partnerships we can also offer a wider and more complete service, including Patch Test, Nickel Test, Challenge Test, Insulting Test, In Use Test, Het-cam Test, skin-and-eye irritation test, cytotoxicity test and different functionality test, such as SPF value in vitro and in vivo, the long-term acute hydration, anti-dandruff activity, etc.

Microbiological Laboratory

Areaderma Control Quality Laboratory carries out microbiological analysis on raw materials, semi-processed materials and on the finished products as well as during all the main production steps, such as: working equipment, air, water and packaging. This is to monitor any possible source of contamination.

production

Thanks to a wide equipment, we can produce variable quantities of different references, included alcoholic-base cosmetics.

Every year, we produce 1 million and hundred thousand containers, 1 million and hundred thousand tubes, 600,000 vases and 1 million of packs of single-dose pearls. This amounts to a total of 1,600 productions and 500 tons of semi-processed materials.

Our daily capacity varies according to the type of product, but it can reach 3,800 kg of emulsion at high heat and 7,000 kg of tensiolites and cold solutions.

In our laboratories, we produce white cosmetic (face creams, body creams, detergents, micellar waters, serums, toners, shampoo, balsams, scrubs, deodorants, body wash, shower gel, etc.), alcoholic-base cosmetics (eau de toilette, parfums, lotions, etc.), oils (hydrating oils, massage oils, mix of essential oils, etc.), medical devises class I.

packaging

Versatility and responsiveness are the key factors of our packaging department. In fact, we have easy-adjustable lines, which allow us to manage any kind of orders and different types of packaging.

We always look for innovative solutions to make our internal process always more efficient and versatile. For this reason, we have implemented our traditional packaging lines as well as a system of single processing cells, where a single operator can carry out all the production until the finished product. The reason is that we experiment and always aim at better solutions, but we give also great value to people, as they, unlikely machines, have a higher sensibility about the quality of the product.

For this reason our packaging process are automated or semi-automated as little as possible and we prefer the work of skilled operators.
