Abstract: Formulated product development starts from needs emerged from the society which are after transformed into commercial products. During the process some stages are taken into account such as product conceptualization, quality criteria, ingredient’s selection and manufacturing process design. Since people started being more self-concerned about skin diseases and the desire of always be well-looking, cosmetic creams have made an impact in cosmetic industry. The consumption of creams which improve our appearance and make us feel more self-confident is increasing every year. That is the reason why two different facial creams have been developed. One consists on an anti-aging method in order to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and the other cream is an exfoliating and moisturizing cream which removes the dead skin cells and keeps skin hydrated. For both of them, a recipe has been proposed with its required quantity. They differ in function, aroma and texture but both are oil-in-water emulsions. The design of a manufacturing process has been carried out with a production of approximately 10,000 kg of each facial cream per year. Approximate formulas with its ingredients and the required quantity, a production quantity and a process flowsheet with the necessary equipment and packaging design for each cream have been proposed.
