LUBRICANTS
In all types of machines, the surfaces of moving or sliding or rolling parts rub against each other. Due to this movement against surfaces in contact, friction results. Friction causes a lot of wear and tear and even generates heat. All these results in loss of efficiency and lubricants is the answer. Hence any substance put between two moving/rubbing/sliding surfaces with a view to reduce or eliminate frictional resistance is a lubricant. It is also worthy of note that the demand for lubricant is huge and especially in Industries.

Why Start a Cosmetics Manufacturing Business?

The rule of thumb when it comes to starting a business and minimizing the time you need to wait before breaking even is to start a business whose products or services are needed in our daily life and cosmetic manufacturing business falls under this category.

Cosmetic and beauty products are used in all parts of the world and of course those that are in the business of manufacturing cosmetics and beauty products are known to generate sales year in year out if the business is well – managed. As a matter of fact, economic downturn hardly affects the purchase of cosmetic and beauty products because it is a commodity that plays a major role in our daily living.
