Efficient production in the cosmetic industry has far-reaching effects on CO2 emissions, cost structures, production times, and ultimately the industry’s profitability. This article provides approaches and recommendations for optimizing the production of emulsions in cosmetic manufacturing. The selection of raw materials, phase construction, production processes, and machinery are considered to reduce emissions and enhance efficiency. Although the focus is on emulsions, other aspects of production optimization are also relevant. Close collaboration between development and production, along with targeted measures, can lead to significant improvements.
