Pharmaceuticals and Cosmetics

Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic products are produced in many forms from powders and granules to Pastes and liquids. The colour of these products is important in the identification, safety and aesthetic value of the final product as well as a way to measure the progress of processing. Pharmaceutical colour is also an important indicator of degradation. The Tintometer manufacture a range of instruments for the evaluation of colour for incoming raw materials, final product and packaging material in its many different forms.

Solids and Solutions
The nature of cosmetics means that there can considerable variability in samples types. Samples of the same product can also change form during the manufacturing process. Choosing the correct colour scales, wavelengths and sample management is easier when partnered with an expert. Our equipment enables you to manage colour in liquids, powders, gels and granules. If you would like to see how, just ask us for a demonstration.

A Distinguished History in Food and Drink
Lovibond® has its origins in the brewing industry and we have been measuring colour since 1880. Joseph Lovibond was the first person in the world to develop a practical colorimeter to ensure the high quality of his beer. He was the originator of the Lovibond® scale. We still use the scale as our company logo today. Still a family owned business but now global, at Lovibond® we value our heritage.
