Ingredients Details and Uses in DMK Cosmetics

Ethylhexyl Palmitate
Is used in cosmetic formulations as a solvent, carrying agent, pigment wetting agent, fragrance fixative and emollient. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Ethylhexyl Palmitate is used as an emollient that helps the cosmetic to glide on to the shin evenly. It also helps the cosmetic in the properties that makes it bendable with other colors, easily.

Isododecane
Hydrocarbon ingredient used as a solvent. Isododecane enhances the spread ability of products and has a weightless feel on skin. All hydrocarbons used in cosmetics help prevent the evaporation of water from the skin.  In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Isododecane is a weightless product that allows the cosmetic to spread evenly on to the skin.

Bis-Vinyl Dimethicone/Dimethicone Copolymer
Cosmetics companies are always interested in improving the aesthetic and performance properties of cosmetics. Currently available color cosmetics are vastly improved compared to concoctions that women wore in the early twentieth century. Much of the improvement is due to the availability of many different synthetic polymers that are customized to provide specific functional properties when incorporated into cosmetics. For example, in past years, longwearing cosmetics were achieved by incorporating natural resins such as sandarac gum or cellulose polymers. These natural substances had many drawbacks, not the least of which was inconsistency in properties from lot to lot. Now synthetic polymers such as silicone resins provide this property In addition to being consistent across bathes, such resins are inexpensive, relatively easy to manufacture, and widely available.  In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Bis-Vinyl Dimethicone/Dimethicone Copolymer allows the cosmetic to spread on to the skin evenly, but it also disappears through evaporation after several minutes of being exposed to the air. This product replaces all oils that would normally be in a cosmetic that stay on top of the skin and cause major skin irritations and extended maintenance for professionals as well as individual users.

Dimethicone
Silicon is ubiquitous in the earth and silicon dioxide is common sand. Silicon, like carbon, can form polymers. Dimethicone is a fluid mixture of siloxane polymers sometimes referred to as polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). It is optically clear, and is generally considered to be inert, non-toxic and non-flammable. Dimethicone is the most widely used silicone polymer, and is particularly known for its unusual rheological (or flow) properties.  In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Dimethicone does the same as the above within the silicone family. It properties are to accelerate the complete evaporation while helping the cosmetic to flow on to the skin evenly.

Polyethylene
Polyethylene is used for a variety of purposes in cosmetics and personal care products. It is used to unite or bond surfaces together and to hold together the ingredients of a compressed cake. Polyethylene can be used to dilute other solids, or to increase the thickness of the lipid (oil) portion of cosmetics and personal care products. It helps to keep an emulsion from separating into its oil and liquid components. Polyethylene dries to form a thin coating on the skin, hair or nails. When used in oral care products, it polishes the teeth, reduces oral odor, or otherwise cleans or deodorizes the teeth and mouth. Small beads made of Polyethylene are also used for exfoliating, smoothing, or polishing the skin. In the DMK formulation, Polyethylene is used as a binder holding together the powder and base components. It also has some waterproofing and long lasting qualities.
    
Isostearyl Behenate
A synthetic compound derived from fatty acids. Used as an emollient and moisturizer. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Isostearyl Behenate as moisture to the cosmetic without using oils or water.

Trihydroxystearin
Mixture of glycerin and fatty acids used as an emollient and thickening agent. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Trihydroxystearin is used as an emollient rather than a thickening agent.

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is a liquid made from coconut oil. In cosmetics and personal care products, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is used in the formulation of lipstick, eye makeup, foundations, blushers, perfumes, moisturizers, suntan and sunscreen products and many other products. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is made in a highly refined process to make the raw material non-oily and oil free only the highly processed triglyceride has this property.

Stearalkonium Hectorite
Stearalkonium Hectorite is a creamy white, fine powder. In cosmetics and personal care products, Stearalkonium Hectorite is used in a wide variety of products including lipstick, eye makeup, and nail polish and other manicuring products. Surfactant - suspending agent’s function by modifying a solid's surface characteristics by adsorption. Changing the surface properties of a solid, keeps the particles from coming together and falling out of solution. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula as a suspension agent that keeps the pigments and opacifiers in the formula from settling into the foundation.

Propylene Carbonate
Propylene Carbonate is a clear, odorless solvent with a high boiling point. In cosmetics and personal care products, Propylene Carbonate is used in the formulation of makeup, primarily lipstick, eye shadow, and mascara, as well as in skin cleansing products. Propylene Carbonate is used to dissolve other substances and is frequently used with clay gellants. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Propylene Carbonate is used as an agent to dissolve some of the mineral and clay based minerals in the DMK Cosmetic.

Biocence™
Biocence™ botanical complex is a globally approved, paraben and formaldehyde free preservative system for the personal care, OTC and toiletry industries. This proprietary complex of ingredients is based on a carefully balanced blend of highly effective natural and organic green biocide flavonoid components in an emollient base for optimized preservation for use in a variety of applications and products. Biocence™ botanical complex provides comprehensive protection from microbial contamination, including Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, fungi, yeasts and molds. As a broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent, Biocence™ botanical complex can be used alone as the primary preservative in a product as well as a preservative base formulation for OTC products. This minimizes the total amount of preservative and formulation needed to ensure proper preservation while simplifying the formulation process. It is safe, non-toxic and non-irritating and there is no evidence that it causes skin or eye sensitization.  Biocence™ botanical complex is compatible with most personal care, OTC and cosmetic ingredients, including complex molecules such as proteins and surfactants. Biocence™ botanical complex is a versatile, easy to use liquid, highly stable and effective over a broad pH range. Biocence™ botanical complex is a unique, and economical preservative complex, which helps provide safe and stable finished products for the health, personal, OTC, and beauty market.

Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax
Beeswax is a wax secreted by honeybees. Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, also called Candelilla Wax, is obtained from the plant Euphorbia cerifera, which is a plant that grows in North Central Mexico and the Texas Big Bend area. Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, also called Carnauba Wax, is obtained from the leaves of the Brazilian tropical palm tree, Copernicia cerifera, and Rhus Succedanea Fruit Wax, also called Japan Wax, is obtained from the berries of the sumac Rhus succedanea, which grows in Japan and China. In cosmetics and personal care products, Beeswax and the plant waxes are used in the formulation a wide range of products including baby products, bath products, lipstick, makeup, fragrances, coloring and no coloring hair products, nail and skin care products, personal cleanliness products, shaving products as well as sunscreen and suntan products. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax is refined without oils in the raw materials manufacturing process and gives the DMK foundations strength and sturdiness. It is also a weatherproofing agent that helps to make the cosmetic waterproof.

Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax
Beeswax is a wax secreted by honeybees. Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, also called Candelilla Wax, is obtained from the plant Euphorbia cerifera, which is a plant that grows in North Central Mexico and the Texas Big Bend area. Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, also called Carnauba Wax, is obtained from the leaves of the Brazilian tropical palm tree, Copernicia cerifera, and Rhus Succedanea Fruit Wax, also called Japan Wax, is obtained from the berries of the sumac Rhus succedanea, which grows in Japan and China. In cosmetics and personal care products, Beeswax and the plant waxes are used in the formulation a wide range of products including baby products, bath products, lipstick, makeup, fragrances, coloring and no coloring hair products, nail and skin care products, personal cleanliness products, shaving products as well as sunscreen and suntan products. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Copernicia Cerifera (Carnuba) Wax is processed in a non-oil fashion as a medical grade raw material and is used partly as a weatherproofer, and as a structure to build the cosmetic body. Its natural color also offers some opacifying properties as well.

Isopropyl Jojobate
Isopropyl jojobate is often used in cosmetic formulations as a pigment wetting agent and emollient. It is often found in lipsticks, eye shadows, blushers, foundations, (especially stick foundations) and hair dyes. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Isopropyl Jojobate is used as a wetting agent.

Jojoba Alcohol
Jojoba alcohol is the alcohol fraction obtained by the saponification of jojoba oil. Jojoba alcohol is commonly used in cosmetic formulations. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Isopropyl Jojobate is used as a wetting agent to keep the cosmetic from drying.

Jojoba Esters
Jojoba esters are mainly used as emollients in cosmetics such as lipsticks, shampoos and moisturizing lotions. Jojoba esters may be ethoxylated to form such water-soluble materials as PEG-150 Jojoba, PEG-120 Jojoba or PEG-80 Jojoba. Jojoba esters are excellent botanical substitutes for whale oil and its derivatives, such as cetyl alcohol and spermaceti. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Jojoba Esters are used as substitutions for the oils hat are used in normal cosmetics.

Nylon-12
The properties of semi-crystalline polyamides are determined by the concentration of amide groups in the macromolecules. Nylon 12 has the lowest amide group concentration of all commercially available polyamides thereby substantially promoting its characteristics:

  • Lowest moisture absorption: Parts show largest dimensional stability under conditions of changing humidity.
  • Exceptional impact and notched impact strength, even at temperatures well below the freezing point
  • Good to excellent resistance against greases, oils, fuels, hydraulic fluids, various solvents, salt solutions and other chemicals
  • Exceptional resistance to stress cracking, including metal parts encapsulated by injection molding or embedded
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Low coefficient of sliding friction, in dry running against steel, polybutylene terephthalate, polyacetal, and other materials
  • High process ability

In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Nylon-12 is used for all of the above plus the Nylon-12 structure help to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles when combined with DMKC encapsulated pigments.

Silica
These are the reasons why silica is used for cosmetics: Silica contained in foundation adsorbs sweat and oils in skin, which prevents light reflection by sweat/oil and keeps makeup on the skin longer. Spherical particle type of silica improves the smoothness and spreading of foundation and cream. The smooth surface appearance of nail polish is created by silica particles in the polish. Porous silica is used as an ingredient in powder perfume, which can keep the fragrance on the skin for a longer time. Silica is contained in antiperspirant, which gives the smooth feeling after it is applied on the skin. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Silica as an ingredient that absorbs oils as well provides a matt finish.

Tocopheryl Acetate
The first line of difference in the antioxidant army. Tocopherol, or vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin is a naturally occurring antioxidant which can be isolated from vegetable oil. When isolated Tocopherol, is a viscous oil that varies in color from yellow to brownish red. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Tocopheryl Acetate is used for its anti-aging.

Ascorbic Palmitate
A natural preservative,  Ascorbyl palmitate is a fat-soluble form of ascorbic acid, or vitamin C. Unlike ascorbic acid, which is water-soluble, ascorbyl palmitate is not water-soluble. Consequently ascorbyl palminate can be stored in cell membranes until the body requires it. Many people think vitamin C (ascorbyl palminate) is only used for immune support, but it has many other important functions.  Ascorbyl palmitate is an effective free radical-scavenging antioxidant barrier, which protects skin health and vitality. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Ascorbic Palmitate as an anti-oxidant.

Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract
Also known as Japanese Green Tea, the leaf of this plant is an antioxidant. When applied topically, it helps to protect the skin from the effects of free radicals in the environment. The leaf is also known for its soothing properties. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract is used as a skin protectant.

Aspalathus Linearis Leaf Extract
Powerful anti-oxidant.  In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Aspalathus Linearis Leaf Extract is used as an anti-oxidant.

Malachite Extract
Malachite comes from the Greek word "Mala'khe" which means "the color of mallow", a plant whose deep-green leaves were widely used in medicine. Malachite is a stone extract with a strong antioxidant and detoxifying activity. It is a general skin protector and can be used in all cosmetic treatments. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Malachite Extract as a detoxifying and anti-oxidant.

Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid (also called Hyaluronan) is a component of connective tissue whose function is to cushion and lubricate.  Hyaluronan occurs throughout the body in abundant amounts in many of the places people with hereditary connective tissue disorders have problems such as joints, heart valves and eyes.  Hyaluronic acid abnormalities are a common thread in connective tissue disorders.  Interestingly, they are also common biochemical anomalies in most of the individual features of connective tissue disorders such as mitral valve prolapse, TMJ, osteoarthritis, and keratoconus.
Hyaluronic acid has been nicknamed by the press as the "key to the fountain of youth" because it has been noted that at least some people who ingest a lot of it in their diets tend to live to ripe old ages. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Hyaluronic Acid I used for its anti-aging properties.

Juglans Regia (Walnut) Seed Extract
Pro-Active patented material extracted from the Noix de Grenoble walnut that helps cutaneous cells organize their own defense against all signs of aging and is focused on preventing damage, not merely repairing it. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Juglans Regia (Walnut) Seed Extract is used for its anti-aging properties.


May Contain:

Note: All pigments used in DMKC Foundation products are high quality encapsulated pigments. This is not a standard cut flat pigment that will lie in the crease of a wrinkle, but is a oval or oblong shaped pigment that is not only encapsulate (or covered with a special acetate so not to change color due to the acidity or alkalinity on the skin) but refracts the light in many directions to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The flat cut pigments, lying in the wrinkle reflect like a mirror increasing the light and making the wrinkle more noticeable.

Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)
In cosmetic and skin care products, titanium dioxide is used both as a pigment and a thickener. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Titanium Dioxide is used as an opacifier.

Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499)
Iron pigments are also widely used in the cosmetic field. They are considered to be nontoxic, moisture resistant, and non-bleeding. Iron oxides graded safe for cosmetic use are produced synthetically in order to avoid the inclusion of ferrous or ferric oxides, and impurities normally found in naturally occurring iron oxides. Typically, the iron (II) oxide pigment is black, while the iron(III) oxide is red or rust-colored. (Iron compounds other than oxides can have other colors.) In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Iron Oxides are used as color pigments. They are all minerals.

Mica (CI 77019)
Mica is a group of silicate minerals that are widely distributed in different types of rock. Mica often occurs as flakes, scraps, or sheets, and has been used by humans since prehistoric times. Because Mica comes from the earth it may contain trace amounts of heavy metals. The FDA regulates the levels of heavy metals in Mica, and the small amounts that may eventually be in cosmetic or personal care products do not pose a risk to human health.

Ingredients Usage in DK Cosmetics Crème Glace

Cyclomethicone
Cyclomethicone is a clear, odorless, silicone-based oil that is incredibly useful and versatile in a number of bath & body recipes. It is a synthetic unmodified silicone that stays on the surface of the skin - the molecules are too big to physically enter past the upper living cells. It doesn't really have any "healing" or "moisturizing" qualities in and of itself - think of it more as a "carrier." Because it evaporates relatively quickly, it is most commonly used to carry fragrance or essential oils in linen sprays, body sprays, and roll-on "dry" perfumes. It also is used in lotions to impart a slick, silky feel - and is widely used in hair treatments.
There are many different varieties and grades of cyclomethicone. DMK Cosmetics formulation is a medical grade, high quality blend of three types of Cyclomethicone that offers protection to the skin and extremely easy application with the DMK Foundation Formula.

Isododecane
Hydrocarbon ingredient used as a solvent. Isododecane enhances the spread ability of products and has a weightless feel on skin. All hydrocarbons used in cosmetics help prevent the evaporation of water from the skin.  In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Isododecane is a weightless product that allows the cosmetic to spread evenly on to the skin.

Isohexadecane
Isohexadecane is a high purity, iso-paraffin emollient and solvent used in cosmetics and beauty products. Although it is colorless and odorless, it creates a very creamy, thick formula. However, for all of its rich texture, Isohexadecane leaves a non-greasy, light and silky feeling on the skin. It is most often found in foundations, sun care products, lip products, deodorants and antiperspirants and makeup removers. There are no safety measures or warnings associated with the use of Isohexadecane and the Environmental Working Group rates it 100% safe. A study was published in Contact Dermatitis in 2004 that concluded that Isohexadecane does not cause contact dermatitis. In he DMK Crème Glace formulation Isohexadecane is an emoillient that leaves the skin silky feeling.


Zinc Oxide (CI77947)
Zinc oxide is a natural source pigmented mineral, quarry mined and further refined to a fluffy white powder. It is commonly found in cosmetics as a whitening agent and it is also found within sunscreens because of its impressive capability to block UV light. Zinc Oxide has an enormous refractive index (ability to bend light) and comes in right under the refractive capabilities of diamonds! This is why it is the first choice for powerful sunscreens. Below are the 2 main uses for Zinc Oxide…
Cosmetic Use
Zinc Oxide is one of the most powerful whitening pigments found today. It adds a bright white color to lotions, creams, and sunscreens. When using Zinc be sure not to add NO MORE then 25% to the total mixture/recipe. Adding to much will cause a spotty appearance to your cosmetics and may actually cause more harm then good. It should also be noted that if your cosmetics contain too much it will leave a very white, opaque appearance on the skin when applied, this is especially problematic for sunscreens. For best results we recommend 1-2 tablespoons for a 1-gallon batch and 2-3 tablespoons for a 2-5 gallon batch.
Sunscreen Use
Unfortunately we are not able to help our customers formulate an exact percentage of Zinc to be used within their sunscreen recipes to create a particular SPF.
Creating SPF values is an exact and precise science and we recommend its use through your own trial and error or through the administration of laboratory assistance.

In the DMK Cosmetics formulation Zinc Oxide is used as a reflector that will illuminate the face and offer better opacity and refraction to the foundation when applied over the Crème Glace. DMKC Znce Oxide is Soft Vision? encapsulated that reduces fine lines and wrinkles and does not allow colors to change on the skin after applications as opposed to minerals standard milled used in most all formulations.

Dimethicone Crosspolymer
Cosmetics companies are always interested in improving the aesthetic and performance properties of cosmetics. Currently available color cosmetics are vastly improved compared to concoctions that women wore in the early twentieth century. Much of the improvement is due to the availability of many different synthetic polymers that are customized to provide specific functional properties when incorporated into cosmetics. For example, in past years, longwearing cosmetics were achieved by incorporating natural resins such as sandarac gum or cellulose polymers. These natural substances had many drawbacks, not the least of which was inconsistency in properties from lot to lot. Now synthetic polymers such as silicone resins provide this property In addition to being consistent across bathes, such resins are inexpensive, relatively easy to manufacture, and widely available.  In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Dimethicone Crosspolymer allows the Crème Glace to spread on to the skin evenly, but it also disappears through evaporation after several minutes of being exposed to the air. This product replaces all oils that would normally be in a cosmetic that stay on top of the skin and cause major skin irritations and extended maintenance for professionals as well as individual users.

C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate
Mainly used as an emollient and thickening agent. Many cosmetic products contain this ingredient because it provides a light conditioning and silky after touch to the skin and hair. It’s also been shown to act as an antimicrobial agent and a preservative, particularly in products containing UV absorbers. You may find this ingredient in a variety of cosmetics such as sunscreen, facial moisturizer, anti-aging treatments, shampoo/conditioner, body wash, self tanner, eye cream, foundation and deodorant.
In the DMKC formulation, this is used not only as a preservative but adds in the silky feel to the skin after application.

Bisabolol
It is a terpene and is classed as a alcohol and used as a miscellaneous skin-conditioning agent, as well as a fragrance ingredient. Bisabolol is also known as alpha-bisabolol. It can be extracted naturally or derived synthetically. We use the naturally derived bisabolol, which is obtained from the medicinal plant - Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) - where the (-) a Bisabolol isomer is the active principle in the plant. IN the DMKC formulation this is used as a skin conditioning agent.

Silica
These are the reasons why silica is used for cosmetics: Silica contained in foundation adsorbs sweat and oils in skin, which prevents light reflection by sweat/oil and keeps makeup on the skin longer. Spherical particle type of silica improves the smoothness and spreading of foundation and cream. The smooth surface appearance of nail polish is created by silica particles in the polish. Porous silica is used as an ingredient in powder perfume, which can keep the fragrance on the skin for a longer time. Silica is contained in antiperspirant, which gives the smooth feeling after it is applied on the skin. In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Silica as an ingredient that absorbs oils as well provides a matt finish.

Bisabolo Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Oil
Pomegranate is a species of fruit-bearing, deciduous shrub or small tree that grows up to 5-8 m tall. The leaves are opposite or sub-opposite, glossy, narrow, oblong, entire, 3-7 cm long and 2 cm broad. The flowers are bright red, with five petals each. The fruit is between an orange and a grapefruit in size. Punica Granatum is extensively cultivated throughout Armenia, Azerbaijan, the Middle East, Afghanistan, Pakistan, North India, the drier parts of Southeast Asia, Peninsular Malaysia, the East Indies, and tropical Africa. In the Northern Hemisphere, the season for pomegranate fruit is from September to February. In the Southern Hemisphere, the season stretches from March to May. IN the DMKC formulation Pomegranate Oil does the following:

  • Pomegranate is well known for antioxidant properties. It helps in preventing the formation of skin cancer by reducing the frequency of lesions and limits the occurrence of tumors as well.
  • Pomegranate seed oil is extensively used in cosmetic products to revitalize dull or mature skin.
  • The oil adds moisture to the skin and consists of natural estrogenic properties. It is anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial, improving skin elasticity and protecting the skin as well.  
  • It provides relief from minor skin irritations, such as dry skin, eczema, psoriasis and sunburned skin. The oil obtains its strong anti-inflammatory properties from the conjugated fatty acids present in it.
  • Pomegranate seed oil also helps in reducing swelling and easing muscular aches and pains.
  • Some studies have also shown that the oil works to stimulate Keratinocyte proliferation, thereby promoting regeneration and strengthening of the epidermis.
  • Pomegranate is one of the few plants that are a source of conjugated fatty acids. It also contains an abundant amount of punicic acid, which has been called a “super CLA”. Its effect is more potent than the ordinary CLA. Studies suggest that this may support the immune system and build the natural ability of the body to fight against ailments like human cancer, obesity, diabetes and heart diseases.
  • Phytoestrogens, which are similar to the estrogens produced naturally by the human body, are also contained in pomegranate seed oil. Using pomegranate seed oil has served to ease the symptoms associated with menopause and pre-menopause, such as mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness and diminished appetite.

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice
Aloe Barbadensis Flower Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Polysaccharides and Aloe Barbadensis Leaf water are ingredients made from the plant Aloe barbadensis, which is also commonly called Aloe vera. Other specis of aloe, such as Aloe andongensis, Aloe arborescens and Aloe ferox may also be used to derive cosmetic ingredients. These ingredients include Aloe Andongensis Extract, Aloe Andongensis Leaf Juice, Aloe Arborescens Leaf Extract, Aloe Arborescens Leaf Protoplasts, Aloe Ferox Leaf Extract, Aloe Ferox Leaf Juice and Aloe Ferox Leaf Juice Extract. In cosmetics and personal care products, ingredients derived from the various species of aloe are used primarily in skin care preparations, makeup formulations and makeup removers, and bath soaps. In the DMKC formula Aloe-derived ingredients enhance the appearance of dry or damaged skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness.

Nylon-12
The properties of semi-crystalline polyamides are determined by the concentration of amide groups in the macromolecules. Nylon 12 has the lowest amide group concentration of all commercially available polyamides thereby substantially promoting its characteristics:

  • Lowest moisture absorption: Parts show largest dimensional stability under conditions of changing humidity.

  • Exceptional resistance to stress cracking, including metal parts encapsulated by injection molding or embedded
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Low coefficient of sliding friction, in dry running against steel, polybutylene terephthalate, polyacetal, and other materials
  • High process ability

In the DMK Cosmetics Foundation formula Nylon-12 is used for all of the above plus the Nylon-12 structure help to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles when combined with DMKC encapsulated pigments.
