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.

I don't normally write reviews but had to in this case. The amazing processing service you have implemented is by far the fastest I've ever experienced. I ordered it midnight and received shipment notice the following morning at 930. Better yet, when I received it, the quality of the products were superb. Bar none, the shea butter is the best I've ever bought. Definitely a repeat customer.

I just wanted to say how much I love the service. Soon after placing my order I got an email confirmation that is was shipping. I received the right item and was pleased with it. I shop online all the time and this site has the fastest shipping and best customer service I've ever come across. No complaints. I'll definitely be ordering from this site again.
