Technical Services

The Technical Services Department consists of eight individuals striving to provide quality service to our customers and sales personnel. Technical Services operates three types of laboratories:

  • Applications: The Application Labs are our newest labs, and their main purpose is to effectively service the technical and formulary needs of the specialty oriented Personal Care and ACES business.
  • Analytical: Next is our Analytical Lab where we conduct quantitative and qualitative analyses on materials for the purpose of quality control, while providing product support for sales and marketing. Our newest piece of laboratory equipment is the Horiba LA-950 Laser Scattering Particle Size Distribution Analyzer which can analyze particles in the range of 0.01 to 3,000 microns.
  • Color: Lastly, our Color Lab is used to provide technical support for sales and BSI Cosmetic Ingredients by evaluating new and competitive colors and blends.
