In the production of cosmetics, detergents and cleaners many dusty powders have to be mixed into liquids. As soon as the powders are mixed, dispersed or just dissolved in the liquid, they are safe. But handling those dusty ingredients during the production process creates some specific risks. The finer the powders – the dustier they are. Dust is always hazardous. Main issue is the health risk for the operators. Breathing fine dust is harmful and causes serious lung diseases and other problems.
