Ever wonder how your cream blush is made?
The answer to that question depends on the brand in your makeup bag. Many cosmetics companies formulate cream blush a certain way, while GlamNatural does things differently. To illustrate, we’ll explain how other brands may go about making their cream blush. Then, we’ll explain our differences.
1. Oil Phase
Typically in the making of cream blush, the chemist can choose from 10-20 standard oils- both natural and synthetic. Other emulsifiers and chemicals may be added in order to form the oil phase.
2. Water Phase
In a second beaker, preservatives such as parabens and citric acid may be added to a water in a volume that is equal to or greater than the volume produced in the oil phase.
3.. Color Grind Phase
In the third phase, colorants are ground in preparation for mixing with the oil.
The color phase is added to the oil phase during a high shear mixing process. Then, the water phase is poured into the color mixture to form a cream blush emulsion.
This 4-step process is a fairly standard way to incorporate water, oil, preservatives and color. However, GlamNatural doesn’t follow this procedure because we do not use water in our Cream Blush formulation. We also skip the preservative step since we don’t include any of those in our makeup either. Of course, we do need to mix our short list of BodySafe™ ingredients together, but,that is as much as we’ll divulge– after all, a brand’s got to maintain some secrets.
