No doubt, the biggest thing happening in skincare is the rise of stick and balm products. The population of cosmetics users is evolving and growing, with a desire for products that offer maximum convenience and ease of use. Few formats are as convenient and multifunctional as the stick. Koster Keunen knows how to formulate the whole range, from a soft, high pay-off stick to a firm chassis that produces maximum stability in all temperatures. Our example formulations showcase how the perfect blend of waxes and esters can create textures that push the boundaries of what stick formulas have achieved in the past.
Even better, we’ve got you covered with the ultimate perk: clean and safe ingredients. Consumers are using their dollars on products that recognize their environmental impact and shape the future worldwide. Working with Koster Keunen products gives brands the option of sourcing sustainable, eco-friendly, clean, and safe ingredients. For example, the Beeswax that gives your anhydrous formulations structure and plasticity is sustainably sourced. And that’s no greenwash: our white and yellow sustainable Beeswaxes are traceable back to the hive and certified according to a 3rd party NGO.
