With zero-waste lifestyles opening doors to new solid and waterless formulations and formats with a luxury feel, there is an opportunity for skincare brands to create more glamorous and premium solid formats that give the same sensorial and functional qualities as traditional products.

In this workshop, Cornelius and Strahl & Pitsch will explore a range of different wax and oil combinations at different percentages, in both a ‘matrix’ format and in finished products, to demonstrate how important it is to choose the right wax for your formulation.

Try for yourself how a wax can improve structure and stability, give a more elegant talcy feel, increase the richness of a formula, or give a pseudo-silicone effect, and how these waxes interact with different natural and synthetic oils.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from our wax expert, Roger McKenna from Strahl & Pitsch, who specialise in importing, refining, and custom blending waxes since 1904.

If you can’t make the workshop, then call by Stand 733 to talk to Jen and Roger about the wonderful world of waxes and how they can help you to elevate your formulation textures!
