The international laboratory ISPE (www.ispe.it) in Milan (Italy) recently evaluated the spreadability, skin coverage degree, skin coverage homogeneity and skin softness by comparing BORONEIGE® Boron Nitride with other common color cosmetic ingredients. 16 trained panelists evaluated the powders according to a standard protocol and ranked them with regard to the intensity degree of each selected parameter. As a conclusion can be drawn that BORONEIGE® Boron Nitride in terms of spreadability, skin coverage degree, skin coverage homogeneity and skin softness is superior compared to Nylon12, Talc Extra, Mica and PMMA.
