Abstract

In Ecuador, the biodiversity offers a wide variety of plant species that, due to their characteristics, represent an alternative to produce cosmetics with high added value, environmental friendly and respecting BioTrade Principles and Criteria.

The objective of this research was to design an industrial process in order to produce a cosmetic emulsion using Amazonian vegetable oils as ingredients, analyzing the mass and energy balance for a 10Kg turbo-emulsifier equipment and determining the capacity according to future productive development needs.

Keywords
