Ingredient Function

SustOleo™ TSB: Buttery, creamy texturizer and sensory emollient. Compare to shea butter with the added benefit of smooth, not grainy skin-feel and superior oxidative stability.

LexFeel™ Natural: Fast spreading, smooth and light emollient to further reduce oiliness and tack of other natural oils.

SustOleo™ TL: This powder sensory enhancer melts to a liquid at skin temperature creating a dynamic sensory experience. It leaves a soft, lightweight barely-there skin feel.

Vellaplex™ MB: Plant-based copolymer serves as a soft film former which locks in moisture.
