  • How to reduce waxy afterfeel in cream blush

    Posted by chem.ist on January 18, 2024 at 11:14 am

    Im working on a cream blush and its almost perfect but the afterfeel is slightly waxy. The client wants it to be all natural. ive tried increasing the lauryl laurate since it has a dry after feel but it hasnt worked. the mango butter must be at 3%. anything else can be changed

    MCT oil - 20%

    Jojoba oil- 20%

    Polyhydroxystearic acid- 15%

    Lauryl laurate- 10%

    beeswax 7%

    Polyglyceryl-6 Octastearate (and) Glyceryl Behenate 5%

    mango butter 3%

    mica 20%

    and other extracts

    Maybe it would be worth adding powder that absorbs excess fat? Corn flour, rice flour, some form of cellulose?

      Thanks! The clients old formula has a powder that caused issues in stability. Ive tried tapioca, arrowroot, conr starch, rice powder, some powdered waxes but they all create a skin on the top of the blush that you have to break or it dries out the blush too much.

      Any tips on preventing that?
