HydroSal® Makeup Fix is an essential technology-based component for any kind of makeup product. HS Makeup Fix enables consumers to wear makeup that stays on for the whole day without transferring, smudging or fading while you wear a protective mask or when sweating.

How the Technology Helps You

If you are a consumer, HydroSal® Makeup Fix adds a fine layer of coverage to keep makeup lasting all day long even through a tough workout. This is a water-based, alcohol-free liquid, that is used to produce a lightweight, fast-drying spray.

The technology will soak all of the powder and adhere it to the skin. This will prevent a cakey, fake, and powdery look throughout the day.

While setting powder is used to absorb oil all over or in key areas with a more matte finish, the HydroSal® Makeup Fix spray gives a softer effect with less visible texture. It keeps the whole face of makeup in place—that includes mascara, even lipstick.

For cosmetic formulators: HydroSal® Makeup Fix is a suspension with acrylic polymers as a core and a film-forming shell (Figure 1). The polymeric structure allows for a low texture spray that once applied on the skin it forms a thin layer of water and oil durability. You can use the technology with water, glycols, and others. Follow our guidelines for formulation.

How HydroSal® Makeup Fix Works

HydroSal® Makeup Fix is used as a setting spray. The spray works best on the top layer of makeup, such as bronzer, eye shadow, and blush. If you want to keep the foundation and concealer in place, use a primer before applying them to your face. Primer and setting sprays can be used together.

Most ‘setting’ and ‘finishing’ sprays are designed with a similar goal – to make the makeup last longer. However, they do this in very different ways. Makeup ‘setting’ spray is formulated to be budge-proof and keep the makeup right where you left it, while ‘finishing’ sprays are typically used to moisten the skin. With HydroSal® Makeup Fix, you can combine the functions into a single product. It enables the delivery of refreshing and moisturizing ingredients for an extended time.

If you experience any adverse reactions from use of this product, immediately discontinue use. Keep away from heat sources.
