What skin type is this foundation best for? What is its texture and due to what components? Anzhelika Baklaga, an independent make-up artist, talks about what is included in the legendary Giorgio Armani foundation.
From a functional point of view, this formulation is a balanced cascade of stabilizers, thickeners, silicone oils and an emulsifier.
Components such as Cyclopentasiloxane, Isododecane, Peg-10 Dimethicone will contribute to a good and even distribution of the product on the face. Due to this, the texture of "milk" is obtained, which holds firmly. Alcohol (Alcohol Denat) helps to quickly "dry" the product on the skin.
Emulsifier Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate and Cetyl Peg / Ppg-10/1 Dimethicone and Hexyl Laurate provide good stability to the formula itself (there is no wax base in the composition, this makes the product lightweight, but stability may "suffer"). To help with the stability of the formula, the manufacturer has put in a lot of stabilizers and thickeners that will allow the foundation to be light yet long-lasting. Disteardimonium Hectorite, Acetylated Glycol Stearate, Magnesium Sulfate, Trihydroxystearin, Cellulose Gum, Acrylates Copolymer are all non-toxic, natural thickeners and stabilizers.
But such components as Nylon-12 and Diphenyl Dimethicone, due to the high level of dispersion, will give the skin radiance, smooth out minor imperfections, creating a nude effect.
Of the moisturizers, only glycerin is included.
The preservation of this product is parabenic, classical.
Total: this product is suitable for owners of oily and normal skin, the formula is quite "light", for very dry skin, the product may not work - the presence of alcohol and just one moisturizer can dry it out. A fairly serious functional cascade of components creates not only a stable formula, but also gives the skin a feeling of lightness, silkiness and good distribution of the product on the face. Scattering particles, to help pigments, will give radiance, smooth out minor color imperfections and create a nude effect on the skin. The manufacturer claims a high level of SPF - 30, but there is not a single UV filter in the composition. Protection is given by the pigments themselves in the composition. This is a nice bonus - the skin is protected from negative sun exposure, taking into account the fact that only glycerin is the active ingredient in the formula. The manufacturer has put on the packaging a list of allergens,which contains a perfume composition. People with very sensitive skin should pay attention to Limonene, Linalool, Hexyl Cinnamal, because it is often because of allergens that the product is not suitable for you. Classic paraben preservation will not delight paraben-free fans.
