8/5/2016, we have reconfirmed that this product is (and has always been) synthethic and vegetable derived - fully VEGAN.
MyMix Pressing Medium is a blend of silicones with a mid-weight viscosity (see the View Details Hyperlink above for complete INCI labeling information).
It was recommended to us as a good all-purpose pressing medium by a cosmetic chemist who used to work for a big name cosmetic manufacturer and whose area of expertise was pressed powder products.
Once we had the product in our hands, we gave large samples to forty of our customers, along with the instructions to run it through the paces. The results of those efforts will soon be published in an awesome pressed powder ebook. The ebook will include photos, recipes, videos, tips, tricks and more, a massive compilation of efforts by our very creative customers! Anyway, let us just say: our customers loved this pressing medium and gave it 80 thumbs up!
To use as a pressing medium, you can just eyeball it into the formula. Simply add drop by drop to your powders, stir well and stop when the powders have the consistency of wet sand. Then start pressing. Did we mention the ebook will be released soon? Check back in May!
In addition to being a pressing medium the product may be added to creams, lotions, and moisturizers at a recommended use level of 1% - 4% of formula by weight. You would add it to obtain the following benefits:
- semi gloss appearance
- soft, silky after feel
- cushion effect
- skin absorption
Here's another suggestion: mix it into your daily-use conditioner at the same a recommended use level of 1% - 4% and see how it coats the hair to give it extra shine!
Store in clean, dry area and avoid freezing.
