Lipstick & Gloss Ingredients
Description: both lipsticks and lip glosses are cosmetics which are designed to make the lips look more appealing. Lipsticks, in contrast to lip glosses, have the main function of coloring the lips and giving them more definition. It is a soft solid in stick-form, which is applied to the lips. Lip-glosses are designed to give the lips a subtle, shiny color. Lip-glosses can be applied either as a liquid with a small applicator or as a soft solid.
Trends and Ingredients: besides obtaining long lasting color, texture and shine from a lipstick or lip-gloss, the demand for an even more multifunctional lip cosmetic is increasing. Hydration, protection and the ability to make the lips plumper are features which are expected from both a lipstick and a lip-gloss. Furthermore, during the current pandemic it’s important for lip cosmetics to stay in place even when face masks are the new normal. Formulating a lip-gloss or a lipstick with ingredients like Ingre Wax 33, IngreSil BDMCP-805 or Octyldodecanol will result in a hydrating and protective lipstick or lip gloss and will contribute to a long-lasting lip cosmetic which will not be affected by any face mask.
