Magnesium Myristate 4 Oz
Magnesium Myristate, a unique fatty acid, is a great additive for making custom cosmetics and colors. It is a necessity for getting the best quality products made out of your colors and bases. It
is a fatty acid derived from myristic acid. Magnesium Myristate is typically used for making specialty custom make ups and cosmetics, and used in colorants in make ups too.
It offers many key benefits to the specialty customer make up formulator. Magnesium Myristate greatly improves and enhances cosmetics by improving adhesion, and does so without changing shades and colors. It also benefits products (whether a face make up or lip product) by adding good feel and touch, making the product more creamy, by adding emolliency and improving the "slip," and glide of products. It also offers nice feel and look to products by binding them together well and making them more "press-able." It also adds some wear and durability to products.
