California-based ingredients provider BiOrganic Concepts has launched a range of powders for both hair care and color cosmetics, said to offer distinct advantages for formulators.

Lustre is an optimized blend of low molecular weight Power Powder to add shine for hair care products, while Microzest 25 is a line of naturally-derived powders aimed at the color cosmetics category.

The company’s hair care offering is a blend of low molecular weight sodium hyluronate, natural vegetable-based guar gum, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, panthenol, horsetail, hops and chamomile extract that are combined to add hydration, easy wet combing and greater shine to hair care formulas.

Clear advantages

"All the Power Powders offer distinct advantages. They are strategic blends of potent actives that help simplify compounding with premeasured raw materials."​ said Marilyn Acton, Managing Director, BioOrganic Concepts.

"The preservation system for the final product is left to the formulator's discretion. And costs are lower by shipping powder, not liquids."

The Microzest 25 powders range, which is manufactured by LesSonia, is developed from plant-based powders and minerals that are finely milled to 25 microns, making it non-water soluble and sufficiently fine for dispersal in powder or liquid phases.

Targeting a range of color cosmetics

The range is said to provide enhanced natural color for a range of color cosmetic products, including lip and eye products, and is available in a range of eye-catching shades, including Bamboo, Bitter Orange, Lemon and Rose Petals.

"Microzest 25 broadens the range of natural colors available to formulators,"​ said Acton. "These micro powders also lend a subtle scent and matte or silky texture to any color product."

The company, which markets a broad range of natural-based ingredients to the personal care industry, says that both these new powder ranges have been designed to provide enhanced flexibility and ease of formulation.
