OBJECTIVES The purpose of this work was to quantify textural properties of cosmetic and pharmaceutical raw materials. METHODS Textural parameters such as hardness, consistency, cohesiveness, index of viscosity, stickiness and resilience were evaluated. The measurements were performed using texture analyser - a tensile metre equipped with special probes… CONTINUE READING
