LUXSIL® Cosmetic Microspheres - A beauty-enchancing additive for cosmetics.
These hollow, air-filled glass microspheres are used in a wide variety of cosmetic formulations because they are non-porous, chemically inert, and have very low oil absorption. They add lubricity to pressed powder, eyeshadows and liquid foundations. As such, they significantly improve the application properties enhancing flow and imparting a smooth, silky feel.
The precise spherical geometry and sizing of these particles contributes to the consistency of the cosmetic formulation, reducing viscosity and improving flow –in manufacturing and in use. The addition of Luxsil® cosmetic microspheres improves the distribution of other particulates, and enhances the compressibility of powdered products.
Because they are chemically-inert and colorless, they will not alter the cosmetic color. Their light-diffusing characteristics provide excellent hiding properties to the cosmetic, and impart a flattering "soft-focus" effect in use.
