If you are interested in how we produce detailing cosmetics, please read on.
From a chemical point of view, the production of car cosmetics is not much different from the production of chemicals for household or other purposes.
To illustrate the topic, the easiest way is to compare the production technique to a cook. They both use ready-made raw materials, both of them aim to combine several or a dozen ingredients to create the final product. It was not by accident that I compared cooking to the production of detailing chemicals, the similarity is that cooks and chemical producers have a certain group of raw materials at their disposal to create their dishes or products. The chef can cook a delicious or completely inedible dish. Producers of detailing chemicals also have ready-made semi-finished products, but the use of the wrong proportions will make the product unusable, or it will work badly.
Let’s go back to the beginning, before a ready recipe is created, we have to create it through the research process. We start work on the project by identifying the need. New, more and more sophisticated products appear on the detailing market all the time. In addition to the strength of the preparations and the ease of their application, we require pleasant fragrances of appropriate density and high efficiency, all this still raises the bar for chemists. At RRCustoms, we permanently employ a team of chemists supported by cooperation with two world-class institutes. Thanks to this, we have access to a huge range of research, and this allows us to constantly modernize recipes and create new products.
Ok, we already have an idea for the product and a list of requirements for its operation, what to do next. We discuss such an idea with the chemistry department that starts research. We develop samples and test them in our detailing department. The final product that meets our expectations is sent to several friendly detailing companies. If it is required, the products are tested over a longer period of time, we are talking about detailers, waxes or ceramics, where their durability is an important feature. After collecting opinions and possible corrections, we develop labels, evaluate the market demand for a given product and search for raw materials needed for production. Having all the components, we start production.
What does the production itself look like?
Most often, the products are mixed in 1 ton Mausers or in a 3 ton mixer. Waxes are melted in specialized devices. Other products, such as ceramics, require mixing in small volumes.
Depending on the product, the mixing process itself may take from 1 hour to several days. The raw material is added in the right order. During mixing, both the mixer and the containers with the raw material are on the scales, which gives us control over the amount of added raw material.
The finished product goes to the confectioning department and is being filled in bottle on an automatic line. In addition to pouring the products, the line is responsible for tighten the caps or triggers, sticking the label and finally wrap into foil packs of 6, 8 or 10 pcs.
The product prepared in this way goes to the warehouse.
There are products that are poured with semi-automatic machines or even require manual confection due to the specificity of the product.
The recipe plays a huge, if not the biggest role, but also the mixing process itself is important. Depending on whether it is a QD shampoo or a wheel cleaner, the products contain several to several dozen types of raw materials.
At RRCustoms, we try to use native raw materials or we import them from Germany.
You will ask why own production and not rebranding? as is the case with 90% of detailing chemistry producers. Because having our own production, we can be 100% sure that what our client buys is of the highest quality. We have complete control over the entire production process, which is impossible when buying a finished product.
This is the production process of detailing chemicals, probably not much different from other manufacturers.
