Make-up Foundations

Make-up Foundation Ingredients   

Description: foundation is a creamy or powdery substance which can be applied to the face and the neck. The function of a foundation is to create an even, natural looking complexion, without imperfections.  

Trends and Ingredients: The Covid-19 pandemic has presented a challenge to the foundation industry, since foundations must stay unaffected in place throughout the day with a face mask. Besides this, today's foundations are characterized by multiple functions. In addition to enhancing the skin, foundations are expected to protect the skin from sun damage, moisturize the skin and finally must look and feel natural. Examples of ingredients for foundations are IngreCare BS, IngreSil PEG-10DM-215 and Inge Wax 33.
