LIQUID FOUNDATION. FOR A NATURAL AND MATT SKIN TONE
Preparation:Mix together the liquid ingredients of phase A and then adjust the pH to approximately 9 before adding the pigments. Grind the pigments using a bead mill (make up more than will be needed to compensate for losses). Melt the ingredients in B at a temperature of 75°C. Heat the water in the main tank then add the MICROPEARL M305, the EDTA and the pigment paste (A) while heating continuously. Add C in B the introduce (B + C) in the warm water phase; then start the emulsification process. Gradually allow to cool down and, when the temperature reaches about 30°C, add the ingredients in E. Adjust the final pH, if necessary.
Notes:Comments MONTANOV L A natural, glycolipid emulsifying agent; perfectly suited to the production of fluid and highly-fluid formulas. Easy to stabilize, even at very low viscosities. MONTANOV L is likely to generate liquid crystals according to the emulsification process and the emulsion scheme. MICROPEARL M305 Smooth, ultra-soft microspheres which give foundation creams a slightly powdery feel. To enhance this effect, increase the concentration of the Micropearl M305. By virtue of its high dispersion coefficient in water, levels of 10 to 15% can be obtained without any clumping problems. MICROPEARL M305 also contributes to the anti-shine effect of cosmetics by helping to eliminate specular reflections.
