Cosmetic Applicator Foam Market: Introduction

  • The term ‘cosmetic applicator foam’ encompasses various applications, including everything from make-up applicators and removers, and beauty and cleansing products to fragrance carrying foams and liquid impregnated products. A vast range of cosmetic applicator foam grades are available in the market. They can be used with or without water. These materials absorb and retain the beauty product on the skin, leaving a smooth finish.
  • Various chemical agents such as disinfectants, odor suppressants, surfactants, and antibiotics are employed to formulate polymer matrix of these PU cosmetic applicator foams, due to their high absorbent and impregnation capacity. Open and elastic cell structures make these materials resistant to oxidation and aging, especially when compared to latex foams.
  • Superior hydrophilic properties is an essential factor and should be considered during the production of cosmetic applicator foams. For instance, cosmetic applicator foams with densities ranging from as low as 30kg/m3 up to 150kg/m3, and porosities spanning 60ppi to 150ppi are available. These are ideally suited for application in the cosmetics sector. Cosmetic applicator foam can be extensively employed in professional salon applications and consumer goods for usage at home.
  • Cosmetic applicator foam possesses outstanding properties such as longevity, durability, and better performance. It is also gentle and soft when applied on delicate skin. Hydrophilic cosmetic applicator foam is latex-free, non-toxic, and odorless. It is also non-crumbly and oil resistant. Furthermore, it washable and re-usable, thus ensuring a durable and cost-effective solution for liquid, solid, and powder applications in domestic and professional salon environments.
