Product Introduction

Suitable adhesive to the skin, bringing a good blur effect

Because the bismuth oxychloride is a flake crystal, it is easy to split laterally, and the resistance during sliding is small, so it has a smooth skin feeling and can play a lubricating role. In addition, the outermost chlorine layer of the structure forms a greater plane adhesion through Van der Waals bonds, making bismuth oxychloride have excellent adhesion to the skin.

The flake structure enables skin sensory and glossiness

Bismuth oxychloride is a silvery white flake crystalline powder that, when rolled, reveals a silvery pearl luster. The unique flake structure reflects the light specularly, so the naked eye sees the pearlescent effect.

Unlike pearlescent material, where diamonds shine, bismuth oxychloride is a brilliant streak of light, like the Milky Way. It is often used in eyeshadow, highlights, lip balm, Skincare cream, shampoo, skin care products, etc.

The pearling effect of bismuth oxychloride comes from its specular reflection of light, so the product's characteristic particle size and dispersion are important factors affecting the pearling effect of the product. Then, pulp is a good choice.
