Arkema launched its Orgasol Soft Focus ingredient to reflect light and disguise the appearance of wrinkles. According to the company, with extremely narrow particle size distribution, this ingredient makes its way into the wrinkles to reflect light from darker areas and give a lift to the skin. Thanks to its nature and its spheroidal shape, the ingredient claims to diffuse light on the skin’s surface. Unlike conventional pigments and fillers used to mask skin imperfections, the particles do not form an opaque layer on the skin’s surface, but instead ensure a natural look.
The properties of the ultrafine powders have been demonstrated and validated by a sensory evaluation conducted by an independent laboratory. The visual findings have also been confirmed by the fringe spatter method, conducted in vivo on crows’ feet. Involving twenty subjects, the statistical analysis of the results reportedly has highlighted the anti-wrinkle properties of a corrector stick containing the product.
