Cosmetic Filtration


Depth filtration is necessary over a wide range of applications in the cosmetic and personal care industries. Cosmetic raw materials, ingredients and additives demand various degrees of filtration from clarifying filtration to final-polishing filtration prior to shipping.

These product applications include:

  • Esters
  • Botanical Extracts
  • Silicones
  • Essential Oils
  • Hydroalcoholic Fragrances and Colognes
  • Oleochemicals
  • Surfactants
  • Polymers
  • Other Specialty Ingredients

Depth filters play a major role in assuring the highest degree of quality for perfumes, colognes, lotions and creams.

The depth filtration process removes haze, salts, particulate, free water and possibly activated carbon and filter aids which were necessary additives for the refinement of the liquid cosmetic product. In some cases, decolorization is essential for the presentation of a clean, clear product. ErtelAlsopís Micro-Clear product line, with powdered activated carbon (PAC) integrated into the filter media, is the perfect solution for these filtration applications.

ErtelAlsop manufactures a wide range of cellulose based filter media for use with cosmetic and personal care products, which fit our wide selection of filtration equipment. Our filter media is tested and certified to meet organic standards and is free of GMOs, common Allergens, Phthalate and BPA.
