Balm2Powder – The switch from a soft, smooth initial feel to a light, powdery after-feel allows for the element of surprise in daily routines. This formula is over 98% natural* and contains the ingredient building blocks to create this unique texture shift.

This formulation features Cutina CP which is a waxy emollient which due to its consistency-giving properties, imparts body to all skin care formulations. Cetiol LC is a traditional, medium spreading emollient for modern cosmetic applications. Cetiol OE gives the skin a light, silky feel and is ideal for innovative green formulations without silicones.
