  • talc methicone coated vs talc silane coated

    Im trying to get talc for making makeup loose powders but I’m not sure of the difference between methicone and silane coated talc. Ive tried researching online and found contradicting writeups like silane is more waterproof and mattifying but in another site it is the methicone one thats like that. I’m not sure what to get.

    I have not worked with Methicone treated Talc, so I cannot comment on which ones better. However, I have worked with silane treated Talc & that combination has worked for me. I think the choice of binders is the real deal in such products. Silane treated talc performs well with Silane treated pigments. Silane treated in my experience has better spread ability & lighter texture compared to methicone treated. Hope this helped.

    The choice between methicone and silane-coated talc may depend on your specific priorities for the makeup product you are creating. If water-resistance and longer wear are crucial, you might lean towards silane-coated talc. If a smoother feel and enhanced adhesion are more important, methicone-coated talc might be the preferred option.
