Touchless Stick Ingredient Solutions

Innovate across touchless stick applications

Sticks offer an innovative, fun, and—most importantly—hygienic format that appeals broadly to consumers. Whether it’s a multi-functional stick with high payoff, or a stick to cream that melts into the skin for great moisturization—the options are endless and exciting.

Building a strong touchless stick formulation can be tough, as you work to find the right structuring agents and emollients to deliver the texture and application you’re looking for. When it comes to adding in pigments, surfactants or UV filters, things can get even more challenging.

We’re to help you get started with a condensed list of tried and proven technologies to help you formulate for a range of different touchless stick applications.
