New patent applied to develop a shaving composition from powder

by | Feb 13, 2019

Cosmetics Business report that a new patent has been applied to develop a shaving composition from powder.

Cosmetic scientists have been trying for some time to make a composition that does away with the need for a pressurised aerosol can to generate foaming cream or gel.

This advance is described as a dry powder pressed into a tablet which makes lather and carbon dioxide when it comes into contact with liquid.

The developers say only a small amount of water (ideally mineral) is needed to generate a thick foam, and that the space saving and hotel amenity opportunities are excellent.
