Colour Measurement for Powdered Pharmaceutical and Personal Care Products

Including pharmaceutical compounds, ingredients, and cosmetics to ensure batch consistency and high perceived quality.

Within the pharmaceutical and personal care products industries, powdered products represent a significant proportion of colour measurement applications, both in cosmetic powders but also as raw materials and as process steps on the way to finished products. To measure powdered products, or even granules and particle sizes in between, the sample is pressed to a flat and consistent surface, and measured in reflectance.
For powdered cosmetics, colour is used as a selling point; the ability to specify and produce new colours or match to seasonal trends is a source of competitive advantage. For pharmaceuticals the ability to make the colour of products fit in or meet expectation cannot be understated.

Providing a product with a high perceived quality that is consistent and matches the consumer expectation are core to the user experience and essential to brands within the industry, as well as the ability to offer a wide range of colour products and to react quickly to the market.

Digital colour and appearance data can be used to expedite the supply process, greatly improving companies' ability to react to the market by reducing the risks and costs associated with producing, distributing, and maintaining physical standards.

Colour measurement, applied when visiting with customers, agreeing specifications with suppliers, in product innovation development laboratories, benchmarking industry competitors, or reporting for internal quality control programs, can build supply chain relationships based on quality, consistency, and reducing subjectivity from specification and approval.

Konica Minolta has a dedicated team of experts responsible for implementing, training, optimising, and customising our computer colour matching and digital colour data platform Colibri®.
Colibri® is a modular digital colour data platform that allows companies to develop and grow their systems as necessary, with specialised modules for all functions of the colour supply chain. Owners can build libraries and share data and functions securely with supply partners via cloud or on-premises infrastructure. Benefitting from the advanced colour matching algorithm, colour producers can greatly simplify matching and correction steps, easily switch in our materials or colourants as dictated by the market or supply chain.

Konica Minolta Measuring Instruments can help producers to deliver accuracy, certainty, and traceability for the production of powdered materials. Our instruments and software are easy to use whilst providing vital colour and colour difference data to operators in development laboratories, in production, or in quality control. Whether used for goods in, development, process control, or quality control, implementing colour data and colour communication can help optimise processes and deliver a product with higher perceived quality. Our experts can help you to establish a system that will ultimately reduce waste, whether this is by improving communication and tolerances with suppliers, spotting production issues that cause deviations early and being able to cost effectively correct them, or even removing some subjectivity from QC processes.

Konica Minolta benchtop and portable spectrophotometers are widely used in the Pharmaceutical and Personal Care industries. The instrument selection will largely be down to your processes and any additional processes that you may need, like also measuring liquid products with the same device for example.  Our experienced teams can recommend a solution, and our extensive service network can ensure that your instruments are maintained and traceable throughout their life.
