Emollients in oil-based make-up
Hi there,Anybody tried formulating make-up products like concealer using this formula:48.5% Caprylic Capric Triglycerides10% Octyldodecanol3% Mica + L-lysine3% Silica0.5% Tocopherol4% Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate5% Capryloyl Glycerin/Sebacic Acid CopolymerIt doesn’t really get that slightly tacky feeling, non-oily, non-melting texture. It simply melts on contact with the skin, and that’s what I’m trying to avoid in the texture of a concealer. I want it to be highly pigment and cover just on a single touch. I have seen MAC Cosmetics using Hydrogenated Polyisobutane in their Studio Finish Concealer in addition to my ingredients (- Capryloyl Glycerin/Sebacic Acid Copolymer). Capryloyl Glycerin/Sebacic Acid Copolymer is added because it’s a ‘natural’ subsitute to cyclomethicone.I have been thinking about trying Polypropanediol Dimer Dilinoleate as a substiute for Hydrogenated Polyisobutane. I also looked for Triisostearyl Citrate to make textures more creamy, as I have heard this ingredient can do, but I can’t find a low bulk supplier for this. Crambe Seed Oil which is supplied by Aromantic also has a special texture, might be usable. I’ve also been using slightly tacky ingredients like Rice Lipids, Pomegranate Sterols and Coconut Extract supplied by Formulator Sample Shop, which have given my lipglosses, lipsticks etc excellent feel and texture when it comes to the slightly tacky feeling. But these ingredients are very expensive.Any toughts, suggestions or ideas?
