Colour Cosmetics

Exilva® microfibrillated cellulose and biopolymers from Borregaard provide your make-up and colour cosmetics products with improved flow, stability, applicability and performance.

Dispersing of pigment slurries, maintaining homogeneous distribution of coloured pigments over time and uniform colour upon application to the skin afterwards are challenges that could be solved by choosing the correct rheology structuring agent. Our biopolymers can accomplish these tasks.

Exilva MFC based rheology additives show robust structuring over time and temperature change. They provide high yield stress and gel strength in formulations for efficient suspension of colour pigments, stabilising and maintaining product performance.

Exilva's shear-thinning behaviour allows uniform colour cosmetic application to the skin in thick or thin layers. Possible added benefits are better resistance to wipe off and wash off.

Our products offer the following benefits:

  • Improved formulation stability
  • Dispersion of pigment additives
  • Anti-settling of pigments
  • Improved product applicability and spreadability
  • Uniform application of colour
  • Improved sprayability
  • Anti-dripping/anti-sagging
  • Reduced tackiness
