Micro Powders Presents Micropoly

September 11, 2008

Micropoly, two new ingredients from Micro Powders, features grades that are finely micronized polyethylenes characterized by hardness and highly crystalline properties.

Micropoly 210 and Micropoly 250S are ideally suited for use as binders and bulking agents in powdered cosmetic applications. The ingredients are said to improve wear resistance, enhance the soft creamy feel of applications and increase stick strength in lipsticks and AP/DEO sticks.

Micropoly 210 is modified to aid in dispersibility and stability in aqueous applications. It is also an effective product to stabilize emulsions. Micropoly 250S is spherical in shape to aid in dispersibility, lubricity and feel. Micropoly 250S will also provide “soft focus” and line filling effects in makeup and anti-aging cream applications.
