Isododecane Usage For Non Transfer Liquid Lipstick

I'm an experienced not licensed cosmetic chemist I'm formulating a non transfer liquid lipstick for my wife as a anniversary present and need help with the amount needed for Isododecane. Typical usage to make a non transfer liquid makeup formulation is at 48% but its to runny/oily any advice on the usage level?

    Leave the isododecane level where it is - that's where is should be. Reduce non-volatile oils, increase waxes. 

    To my knowledge, no country or organization licenses cosmetic chemists. Where do you live?

  • You need to add trimethylsiloxysilicate.

    Thank you and  for the advice I'm from the US and If you would of read my post correctly you would of saw that I said "I'm an experienced NOT LICENSED cosmetic chemist"

    Exactly BobZ's point ... there is no such thing as a "Licensed Cosmetic Chemist"

    You can be a degreed Chemist or a Chemist that graduated from a Cosmetic Chemistry program, or even a non-degreed person who learned from on-the-job experience.  But, there are no licensing certification bodies for cosmetic chemists that I am aware of.

    @MHyman - As far as I can tell, it's not just the US, no one anywhere on the planet is a licensed cosmetic chemist. I was just curious about where you got the idea that a license for a cosmetic chemist exists.

    I am a Cosmetic Chemist and I have a drivers license. Does that count?

  • @Microformulation I don't think he understands that were classifying Cosmetic in a category and not a licensed title. A Chemist can specialize in anything. Under the study of Chemistry we are saying we specialize in Cosmetics.

    I knew what he was saying. Do I need to get the sarcasm sign like on Big Bang Theory?
