New Film-Forming Polymer from National Starch

May 2, 2007

National Starch Personal Care has introduced a new film-forming polymer that has the potential to offer substantial performance improvement in color cosmetics, particularly mascaras and eyeliners. Dermacryl C film-forming polymer, a new easy-to-handle, high-performance acrylic emulsion polymer, delivers improved resistance to wear, allowing the creation of consumer products that last longer and perform better.

The primary color cosmetic applications for Dermacryl C is eye treatments such as mascara and eyeliners, with other applications possibly including foundations, eye shadows, blushes and more. Tests have shown that Dermacryl C film forming polymer delivers substantially improved wear—reduced smudging and flaking—and water resistance in non-waterproof mascara systems, while remaining easy to remove. The thick, soft, flexible films provide natural volumizing and enhanced curling benefits to eyelashes.
