Shine enhancing

Shine enhancing Ingredients 

Description of Shine enhancing: cosmetics and personal care products have a wide variety of impacts on skin and hair. In some cases, a matte finish is preferred, while in other situations, a glossy (smooth silk-like surface) or shiny (reflecting light) finish may be the wanted result. This shiny finish is often desired in Hair care products, but also in some Lipsticks & Lip glosses. To obtain this shiny finish, shine enhancing ingredients can be added to the formulation. Examples include products like polycationic polymers (Polyquaternium 7 or Polyquaternium 10-400) and silicone ingredients (IngreSil CD15).
