HLC Treated pigments and pearls are uniformly coated with an adsorbed layer of hydrogenated lecithin at their surface. This treatment exhibits good water repellency, resistance to wear and excellent protection for the skin. Being biochemically similar to the skin because of the presence of the lecithin, HLC treated pigments are particularly compatible with the skin. The special properties of the HLC treatment are:

  • Good hydrophobicity
  • Easy dispersibility in oils – no grinding or milling
  • Imparts a smooth and lubricious feel
  • Co-emulsifying properties
  • Imparts excellent stability in emulsion formulations
  • Suitable for W/Si emulsions
  • Easy incorporation of powders into lipsticks
  • The highly hydrophobic nature of pigments and fillers treated with lecithin is well suited for use in wet or dry powder systems. Such products are smooth, spread well, have a good moisturizing effect, good water repellency, prevent drying of the skin, are nonirritating and give long lasting properties to make-up. They are particularly suitable for W/O and W/Si emulsions, Anhydrous products, Pressed or loose powders and for natural skincare products.
