There were times when cosmetics just meant lipsticks and nail paints; and were sold in the local markets, but with evolution and globalization, those cosmetics have moved to big racks and shelves and also included a lot more variety into them. The most common cosmetic commodity still remains to be the lipsticks and nail paints along with some eye products and creams as well. But had we ever thought a way to get more stay and lasting of the lipsticks that we make? Well I don’t think so! But now we have a technology that creates a matt effect in the nail paints and the lipsticks that are being applied and the agent used to do so is called the ‘Matting Agent’.
Matting agent has proved to be a game changer in the world of cosmetics. Your lips wouldn’t look the same as before. This is called the ‘Matt Revolution’. The matting agent lets you have an extensive matt effect in the products and gives the lady a premium look to her lips and nails. Matting agents can either be found in Alumina base or Silica base. Silica base tends to give the user a sandy feel whereas the Alumina base tends to provide a satin feel over the hand. A blend of Alumina and Silica in the ratio of 99.5:0.5 gives the maximum matting effect to the user. The matting agent can be applied to nail paints, lipsticks, compressed powders, cream lotions and all eye products.
Introducing the revolutionary matting agent which gives an elegant and lustrous effect to the formulation of your cosmetic product. The matting agent is available in three variations i.e. Normal Matt (NM), High Matt (HM) and Silica Matt (SM). NM represents the normal matting that is achieved via Alumina base making it a silica free matting agent. It provides a beautiful satin effect to the product and is soluble in acids and alkalis. It also provides resistance to heat and light giving better property and pay-off. HM represents a high matting agent that is achieved by a mixture of Alumina and Silica. It has a very fine particle size making it soluble in acids and alkalis. It has got the maximum matting effect amongst the three variants we possess. The last but not the least is the SM which has got a maximum of Silica content (approx. 99%) giving an excellent sandy feel to the product on application and it is also skin friendly and thus can be easily utilised in cream lotions and eye products. It is high on matting effect than the NM.
