    I don’t know about color cosmetic formulating, you can search if you have a specific INCI in mind 🙂

    If you don’t need the Ecocert approval just something along those lines, plenty of starches will work as film formers. I’ve used this one https://www.grainprocessing.com/starches/facial-masks-cleansers.html
    but beware of the MOQ..

    Use lexfeel series inolex. They are natural silicone substitute.

    @ShellyJ, I don’t have experience with color cosmetics, but I ordered from this a couple of times, and noticed this recently. Translate the page. I hope it’s what you are looking for:

    Film former, not oil layer, right? Use hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (Klucel), though good luck hydrating it in a lipstick oil base system. This is likely a non-starter, just like the others mentioned.
