Sericite Mica suface treated with Carnauba Wax.

  • Ingredients: Mica (77019), Carnauba Wax.
  • Sericite Mica is a popular base powder in mineral makeup formulations. It is wonderful by itself but even more wonderful when tweaked by various additives or surface treatments.

    In addition to our plain Sericite Mica and Silk Mica, we currently carry MM (Magnesium Myristrate) Sericite, Methicone Sericite, and SMAX (Sericite treated with petro-based wax).

    And now, in response to customer requests,we offer Sericite Mica which has been surface treated with Carnauba Wax. We're calling it "C-SMAX".

    Here is what one customer has to say about our new product:

    "Carnauba treated Sericite is natural and vegan. The wax coating helps bind the particles so the formulas are less 'flyaway'. The wax alsokeeps the mica from changing color as it absorbs oil and helps eliminate the typical shine on the surface of the mica particles. After blending it feels amazingly smooth, light and doesn't leave an ashen look on dark brown skin."

  • can you use his with the my mix press base or should his be used as a replacement for the mymix press base?

    CSmax is sericite mica which has been surface treated with carnauba wax to give it a nice slippery feel and water resistance.  It does not have the same binding powder that our press base has, which is zinc stearate.  You should really consider adding some zinc stearate to the blend you create, as well.
