Penstia™ Powder
CAS No: 0027925-07-1

Penstia™ Powder is novel polymer that imparts a silky, creamy, cushiony feel to cosmetic formulations. Their porous spheres allow for high oil loading, which is useful for active entrapment, stabilization and sebum absorption. The particles 'roll' rather than 'drag', adding exceptional slip to any formulation. The chemical composition gives it dry binding properties and also allows it to be used in both water and oil phases, resulting in improved formula stability and reduced tackiness.

Penstia™ Powder polymer spheres can be used in the oil or water phase of a product to increase stability, reduce tackiness, and add slip with a silky, creamy skin feel. Penstia™ Powder has a synergistic effect with silicones and esters to increase thickening in products, and can be used to absorb sebum and deliver active ingredients. Penstia™ Powder can be used in mild cleansing products at up to 3% for gentle sebum absorption. It can be added to make-up products to increase slip and glide as well as sebum absorption.

Key benefits:

  • Adds exceptional slip to emulsions
  • Offers a silky, creamy skin feel
  • Absorbs sebum in make-up or cleansing products
  • Delivers active ingredients to skin

Applications

  • Make Up (Foundation, Powders, Eye Shadow, Lipstick)
  • Emulsion Products (Skin Care, Hair Care, Sun Care)

Formulating with Penstia™ Powder

  • Use high shear mixing (stick blender) when incorporating Penstia™ Powder into lotions and creams.
  • For powder formulations, formulate in the same manner as conventional cosmetic powders
  • Penstia™ Powder has a synergistic effect with cyclic and linear silicones and low polar organic esters causing increased thickening. Wetting and mixing the product with these materials under rapid mixing will break up agglomerates and disperse the product.
  • If used in a product that also contains xanthan gum, gum arabic, or carbomers in the water phase, disperse those first, then add the Penstia™ Powder.

A car drove off the Anacortes Ferry Dock about 9:45AM this morning and emergency crews are there in a search and recovery effort. Service to and from Orcas Island is expected to be suspended for many more hours. This will delay UPS and Mail shipments by a day as these services will miss connections on the mainland. We appreciate your understanding of this situation beyond our control. Please keep the occupants of the vehicle in your thoughts and prayers.

Eric, (Forever Young Advanced Cosmetics)

I just completed my fourth order with Lotioncrafter. I know it will arrive here quickly. This company and Jen provide THE BEST customer support and service from any company I have ever used. Jen is so helpful for questions about the products and how to use them as well. The formulary is very useful. This is a top notch company. I believe that they are honest and provide quality products at a reasonable price. I trust them and will continue to order from them. Order from here, maybe even try something new. I know you will be so glad you did. I am hoping they will sell essential oils someday. Then I would not have to shop for this type of crafting supplies anywhere else.
