Solid or liquid, matte or glossy, transparent or opaque, nude or colourful - the combinations are endless
Lip make-up is proving more popular than ever. Solid or liquid, matte or glossy, transparent or opaque, nude or colourful - the combinations are endless.
When formulating lip products, the appearance of the formula is very important. Sticks, no matter the application, need to look impeccable and resist temperature variations. Glosses need to be transparent, tasteless and easy to apply.
S-Face VL-212 is a buttery emollient from natural and renewable sources. Added to a wax mixture, it helps to make a homogeneous blend and improves the appearance of sticks, preventing them from sweating and cracking.
Melting at skin temperature, S-Face VL-212 brings comfort and softness at application.
While formulation is important, physical attributes such as gloss, colour brightness, adhesion and long-lasting properties all need to be taken into account.
Parleam V is a viscous transparent emollient that brings consistency and high gloss to anhydrous formulas. Waterproof, Parleam V increases the long-lasting effect of glosses and sticks and helps to improve their water resistance. Parleam V remains colourless, odourless and tasteless, even when processed at high temperatures.
Parleam V is non-greasy.
S-Face IS-1009P and IS-1005P are natural emollients. Thanks to their pigment wetting properties, they insure good colour brightness. Liquid and transparent, they are easy-to-use and allow fine-tuning to the correct adhesion and pay-off of lipsticks and lip glosses, while adding shine to formulas.
S-Face IS-1009P and IS-1005P require less wax to achieve a stick of proper hardness.
