Make-up ImerCare® 100% natural minerals for compressibility and optical properties in make-up and color cosmetics
ImerCare® 100% natural minerals meet the softness, compressibility and optical property requirements of your make-up and color cosmetics.
Pressed and loose powders
ImerCare® natural micas, talcs and kaolins can be used as the ideal base for powder make-up such as face powder compacts, eyeshadows and blushers:
ImerCare® 6M - a natural mica product, sustainably sourced from our French deposit in Brittany - confers superior cohesiveness and a transparent and luminous effect to pressed powders. ImerCare® 6M natural mica has been specifically engineered for use in face powders, eye shadows and blushers. It is suitable for all skin color products.
Premium talcs, ImerCare® Dolce, ImerCare® SheerSilk and ImerCare® Velluto, have been engineered using patented technology to obtain a satin finish and soft touch in face powders. They improve the compressibility and cohesion of pressed powders and provide excellent spreadability and homogeneity.
- ImerCare® Dolce is ideal for an unctuous, velvety touch in pressed powders
- ImerCare® SheerSilk is ideal for achieving a transparent, natural luminous effect.
- ImerCare® Velluto is recommended for superior coverage.
- ImerCare® 11T and ImerCare® 4T cosmetic talcs provide silkiness and softness, as well as good compressibility.
