We all know that food, in general, keeps for longer in the refrigerator than elsewhere. This is because a cool environment slows down chemical processes. Does this also hold true for cosmetics?

Firstly, we have to acknowledge that these days, most industrially manufactured products are designed so that they do not need to be kept cool; many can cope with storage temperatures of up to 40°C. Manufacturers go through the process of testing the temperature stability of their products before they go to market – including freezing and defrosting cosmetics. However, despite having good temperature stability, lipsticks can sometimes become soft and melt at higher temperatures. Nowadays, many people choose to cool their cosmetic products in the refrigerator even though they, in no way, have to.

Cosmetics in the fridge?

In the case of homemade organic or natural cosmetics, most of which are free from preservatives, refrigeration is required to keep the products fresh. Many customers also store perfumes and deodorants in the refrigerator, which has a clear benefit as the products are wonderfully cooling to the skin when applied on hot summer days.

Irrespective of whether your cosmetics are purchased or homemade, with the CoolMini CMes 502, Liebherr offers you a great-looking appliance that gently refrigerates your products – a head-turning highlight for any room! The shelves are height adjustable so that tubs, bottles and tubes can be easily and clearly stored, ready for when they’re needed. Furthermore, with a noise level of just 38 dB(A), the appliance is extremely quiet.
