LexFilm Sun Natural MB is a hydroxyl functional cross-linked polymer with a controlled degree of polymerization optimized for sensory and performance benefits. The active is a pourable viscous fluid that imparts consistent aesthetic appeal and acts as an ideal pigment dispersant for inorganic filters. It also has been shown to provide better in vivo water resistance than the benchmark film-former.
According to Inolex, in addition to sun care, the active can be used in a variety of applications for natural protection and coverage; e.g., BB cream, primer, blush, bronzer, foundation, moisturizer, hair styling products, lipstick, conditioner, lip balm, powders, concealer, hair colorants and shampoo.
Derived entirely from renewable and sustainable materials, LexFilm Sun Natural MB is NSF- and COSMOS-certified.
