  • Cornstarch for matte-finish effect?

    Posted by Anonymous on September 10, 2018 at 4:08 pm


    Can cornstarch be used as an alternative matte-finish ingredient for lip products? If not, what powders do you recommend to achieve matte? Thank you so much.

    There’s also an interesting product by makingcosmetics. Mix of silica and silicone polymer. Also used in color cosmetics. It’s called wrinkle blurr. Have a look, it might be even better.

    @cosmic91 You can try COVAFLUID AMD, I think it gives opacity.

    You can read the US patent 5338535 (now expired)
    about using corn starch with cyclomethicone as the solvent.
    Mainly intended for a non-talc body powder.

    You can see if it may work for lipstick
    expect lots of experimentation to be required for product development.
