Global Filter offers a diverse line of high-purity liquid filtration products capable of handling bulk solids removal, clarification, fine particulate removal, and even sterilization in the cosmetic industry.
Cosmetic Industry Filtration
In recent months, many cosmetics companies have pivoted from producing face creams and perfumes to disinfectants and hand sanitizers. The switch has required manufacturers to make some drastic changes to existing production lines, but the role that filtration plays has remained constant – to maximize cosmetic product cleanliness, clarity, and consistency.
Typical Cosmetic Filtration Process
Cosmetic Prefiltration #1
Global Filter recommends using a pleated depth cartridge @ 5.0 micron
Cosmetic Prefiltration #2
Global Filter recommends using a pleated depth cartridge @ 0.2 micron
Sterile Vent Filtration
Global filter recommends validated hydrophobic membrane @ 0.2 micron
Global filter recommends validated pleated membrane @ 0.2 micron
Typical Cosmetic Blending Process
Global Filter recommends using pleated depth cartridges for both. For #1 we recommend a 5.0-micron cartridge and for #2 we recommend a 1.0-micron cartridge.
Global Filter recommends using a pleated depth cartridge at 0.2 microns for the final filtration.

Pleated Depth Cartridges
The multi-layer, fiber-based medias provide true depth-loading for high-efficiency removal at low micron ratings. Pleated depth cartridges design increases surface area which in turn, increases loading capacity and allows for higher flow rates. In a typical process flow, used as a prefilter to pleated membranes or as a polishing element to depth style medias.
Pleated Membrane Cartridges
Extremely high removal efficiencies allow for the removal of particulate and microbial contaminants. Multiple media and grade options are available to optimize a filtration train for the most demanding applications in liquid and air filter manufacturing. In a typical process flow, used as a prefilter to final polishing membranes or in a final filtration step to remove microbial contaminants.
