This paper presents a systematic procedure for virtual experimentations related to the design of liquid formulated products. All the experiments that need to be performed when designing a liquid formulated product (lotion), such as ingredients selection and testing, solubility tests, property measurements, can now be performed through the virtual Product-Process Design laboratory [[1], [2] and [3]]. The user can mimic different experimental scenarios (different products and specifications) and obtain a base case product which could then be tested and amended through real experiments. A case study on the design of an insect repellent lotion will show that the software is an essential instrument in decision making, and that it reduces time and resources since experimental efforts can be focused on one or few product alternatives.
