TwinOne™ SS-1000(PMSQ)

The challenge of maintaining that “just applied makeup” look is two-fold; counteracting the negative effect of both secreted sebum oil and perspiration. Sebum oil tends to breakdown finely applied makeup resulting in unwanted shiny skin. Perspiration, primarily water and salt, can leave the face looking flat and unnatural. While these two facial secretions are seemingly incompatible with each other, TwinOne™ SS-1000 effectively and simultaneously controls both. Sebum oil and perspiration are absorbed, controlled and maintained while leaving the skin with a soft and silky feel. Natural looking, long wear makeup is now possible with TwinOne™ SS-1000.

Applications: Base Make-Up, Lip-type products, skin care and sun care products.

Big Takeaways:

  • TwinOne has excellent compatibility in distilled water and silicone oils as compared to conventional PMSQ powders.
  • Soft Focus- shows improved light scattering versus conventional PMSQ powders.
  • Luxurious Skin Feel- the unique surface improves the application and feel of finished makeup products.
