U.S. Cosmetics & Miyoshi Kasei Unveil Powder La Vie

November 14, 2005

U.S. Cosmetics Corp., Dayville, CT and Miyoshi Kasei, Saitama, Japan, introduced Powder La Vie for color cosmetics and skin care.
The three-component composite offers a unique approach to controlling oil on the skin, company executives said. Conventional oil-control agents utilize high porosity to absorb skin sebum, drying the skin.
Powder La Vie uses patent-pending technology to control sebum via a gelation mechanism.
Powder La Vie minimizes oily shine in both powder and liquid foundations.
