Overview

Nylon-12 is a synthetic powdered ingredient that imparts unique sensorial characteristics. This ingredient utilizes a ball-bearing effect based on its microsphere structure, in which the slip is improved and the product glides onto the skin with ease. The finish of the product on the skin is velvety and elegant.

Nylon-12 can also control viscosity by bulking up the oil phase of a skincare product. Additionally, in large enough quantities, it leaves a natural-looking, matte veil on the skin, giving a refined and finished appearance.
