- Rheological additives Agents that act adjusting the viscosity and fluidity of the formulations. They promote suspension of pigments and pearls, increase stability, structure and promote binder function in molded and compacted products, as well as improving pigment delivery in the application.
- Thixotropy agents Agents that act adjusting the viscosity and fluidity of the formulations, increase stability, confer structure and binder function in molded and compacted products, as well as promoting “false body” effect - high viscosity at rest and greater discharge of products and spreading in the application.
- Waxes Hydrophobic and malleable solid organic compounds that confer structure and stability to formulations. They generally have a melting point above 40°C.
- Emollients Oils, esters and waxes that improve the spreadability and the sensory during and after the product application. They also promote other benefits, such as moisturizing and improving skin texture.
- Microspheres & sensory additives Ingredients that promote sensory improvement, either by increasing the spreadability or by improving the softness or creaminess of the formulation. They may also confer optical disguising on lines or absorption of excessive skin oiliness.
- Resins Non-polar polymers that provide long-lasting effect.
- Polymers Versatile ingredients that can be applied for different needs, like film forming, brightening increase and resistance to transfer.
- Traditional pigments Colored particles insoluble in the medium in which they are incorporated. They need to be dispersed before being incorporated into the formulations.
- Pearlescent pigments Colored particles that promotes bring shine to the formulation according to the light reflection.
- Treated pigments Colored particles insoluble in the medium in which they are incorporated, they have the surface coated by some component, added with the aim of improving their performance. This coating is obtained through a chemical reaction or a physical bond. They need to be dispersed before being incorporated into the formulations.
- Encapsulated pigments Colored particles insoluble in the medium in which they are incorporated, they have a capsule of titanium dioxide and other components coating them. Thus, its appearance is slightly white, and the pigment color is revealed only at the moment of application, when the friction of particles occurs.
- Pigment dispersions Pigments ready for use and available in different systems. They are easy to use and confer economy to the process, greater adhesion and affinity of the product to the skin, long lasting and high coverage.
- Fibers Special fibers of different formats used in mascaras. They group around the eyelashes and aggregate different benefits, such as size increase, maintenance of the curvature and upper volume.
- Preservatives Systems that prevent microbiological growth and contamination, ensuring product stability during the usage.
- Emulsifiers Type of surfactant that allows water-soluble and oil-soluble components to remain in a homogeneous mixture, through the formation of micelles.
- Actives Ingredients that act specifically on an action target, to improve and/or treat specific conditions of the skin, such as hydration, lines and wrinkles and sensitivity.
- Gloss additive Ingredients that generally have high refractive index and provides brightness to the cosmetic product and to the skin after the application.
- Structuring agents Ingredients that promote structure to the formulation, generally confer higher viscosity or allow the formulation to be molded to a specific packaging format.
- Blends Mixtures of ingredients used as basis for the development of gloss or mousse formulations.
- Filler Ingredients used as vehicle for powder formulations.
- Binder Liquid or powdered products whose function is to bind the powders of a formulation for better compaction.
