Makeup primers are intended to help enhance the skin’s surface in order to create the ideal smooth canvas to optimize the coverage and lengthen the amount of time that the next-level cosmetics last on the face.

AgeCap™ Smooth

INCI: Methoxylhydroxyphenyl Isopropylnitrone

Traps selectively Reactive Oxygen Species (ROC ) to avert their damaging effects. As it employs a non-self-sacrifycing mechanism, it helps enhance efficiency versus conventional anti-oxidants. It contributes to healthy skin by softening wrinkle appearance, promoting skin radiance and delivering skin smoothing effects. AgeCap™ Smooth benefits include softening the appearance of wrinkle and providing skin smoothing effect.

DOWSIL™ EP-9610 Cosmetic Powder

INCI: Dimethicone Crosspolymer

A soft powder that provides unique smooth, bouncy and silky feel with optical effect and sebum control with easy processing for Color Cosmetics and Skin Care products. Consumers are looking for soft and silky products that feel velvety on their skin without tackiness or clumping. Elastomer powders provide that special sensory feel, but agglomeration issues lead to processing challenges. DOWSIL™ EP-9610 Cosmetic Powder offers the best of both worlds – softness with less agglomeration.

StarDesign™ Care

Starches are polysaccharide granules extracted from corn. Thanks to a physical treatment, pregelatinization, they are cold processable. In addition chemical treatments, hydroxypropyl substitution & phosphate crosslinking, avoid syneresis and increase stability & resistance of starches versus pH, high shear and temperature. In solution, starch granules swell to texturize formulations and give creaminess & pick up. Properties: creaminess and richness, matt emulsion, short playtime and short penetration.
