LexFeel Shine

LexFeel Shine imparts shine and gloss to lipstick, lip gloss, and other color cosmetic, as well as in hair gloss, hair gel, hair spray, and other hair styling products. LexFeel Shine has a high Refractive Index (RI). This high RI can reduce the whitening effect of antiperspirants and inorganic sunscreens. LexFeel Shine can replace other high RI materials, such as Phenyl Trimethicone, in many cosmetic formulations.

LexFeel Shine is a polar ester, and thus it may require a co-solvent in order to incorporate it into a non-polar oil or silicone phase. A light polyol ester, such as LexFeel 7, is an ideal coupling agent for this purpose.
