Nylon-12 is a polyamide. This synthetic powder has a silky feel and is free of odor. It’s polymetric structure makes an ideal bulking agent and stablizing agent. The mean particle size of Nylon 12 Powder is 10 m and the particle size distribution is very narrow. This property is very important for the feel and texture in cosmetic applications. Thus distribution is censored highly soft upon application. When wetted Nylon 12 Powder appears very transparent next to the conventional nylon. It has very little or no hiding power and permits good color development of color pigments when used together. Nylon has a great absorption capacity. Active ingredients can be totally encapsulated in the Nylon which acts as a sustained release agent. Nylon can absorb sebum from the skin and prevents an oily look.
