HOW IT WORKS
Microencapsulation ensures the safe delivery of sensitive and key ingredients including water that is enclosed within hollow spherical particles. They are released upon application, creating the unique, refreshing powder-to-liquid effect.
Hydrating superstars glycerin and sodium hyaluronate (a form of hyaluronic acid) cool and hydrate by pulling moisture from skin’s deeper levels. This helps maintain healthy-looking skin while decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and dryness without increasing sebum levels.
Multi-tasker methyl methacrylate crosspolymer absorbs oil, mattifies and blurs. Its spherical particles diffuse light and are responsible for the remarkable soft-focus optical blurring effect.
SAFE BEAUTY ALERT

Glycerin is a natural ingredient that is also found in the outermost layer of our skin and acts as a skin replenishing and restoring agent. It is present in all natural lipids (fats) and is usually manufactured synthetically for use beauty and skin care products. It is a powerful humectant – a moisturizing ingredient that pulls water into skin’s outer layer from deeper levels of skin and the air. It is one of many substances that helps maintain healthy looking skin by sustaining its moisture level. A hydration superstar, glycerin is most effective when combined with other hydrating and emollient ingredients like dimethicone and sodium hyaluronate, listed below.
Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer is a multi-purpose synthetic ingredient that can be used as an absorbent, a mattifier as well as a texture-enhancing ingredient. Its porous spherical microbeads give products an elegant, silky texture. It scatters light, reducing the look of fine lines, pores and imperfections. It is valued for its ability to absorb excess oil and reduce shine, resulting in a more matte finish. It was evaluated by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel and reaffirmed safe for use in cosmetic formulas. (Cosmetic Ingredient Review, January 2019, pages 1-42).
Dimethicone is a form of silicone and one the most frequently used emollients, known for its effectiveness and gentleness. Noncomedogenic, it forms an air-permeable barrier that works to retain moisture while allowing perspiration to evaporate. It is considered a safe ingredient with few to no side effects.
Sodium Hyaluronate is a form of skin-replenishing hyaluronic acid that can reach the deep layers of your skin. It is a smart ingredient that attracts moisture, helping skin maintain water balance – key to healthy looking skin. It also reduces inflammation and when applied topically, is excellent for reducing dryness and the appearance of wrinkles.
