NATURAL COSMETIC BASES

The time that is required to create natural cosmetics from scratch is not available to everyone; hence, NDA offers a line of high-grade moisturizing cosmetic bases to enable users to easily formulate individual and personlized natural products that can be enhanced with preferred colorants, botanical extracts, vitamins, unique scents, decorative elements, and personal brands of packaging.

NDA’s conditioning and soothing cosmetic bases are made from some of nature’s finest ingredients to contribute long-lasting hydration and nourishment, making them ideal for use in formulations for high-quality customized moisturizers, including creams, lotions, and massage products. Read on to learn more about each type of moisturizing cosmetic base and determine which one is the best fit for your cosmetic needs. Each moisturizing cosmetic base is free of genetically-modified ingredients, parabens, pesticides, solvents, and phthalates.



 

WHAT CAN YOU ADD TO MOISTURIZING COSMETIC BASES?

Essential Oils, Carrier Oils, Fragrance Oils, Colorants, Exfoliants, and Butters are a few of the additives that can be added to these cosmetics bases for natural skincare formulas. The total of all additives combined should not exceed 1-2% of the total volume.

Exceeding the recommended amounts of natural additives could destabilize bonds between the ingredients. Over time this can cause the base to lose some of its luxurious properties, including viscosity, smoothness, and rate of absorption.

 

ADDITIVE TYPE EFFECT ON MOISTURIZER

Essential Oils

Essential Oils work to enhance the skin’s hydration, firmness, strength, resilience, smoothness, and general health.

The exact effects depend on the specific oils that are chosen for the formulation.

Carrier Oils

Carrier Oils work to nourish and gently but deeply condition the skin to promote smoothness and to enhance overall skin health. Many are reputed to help firm and tone as well as enhance natural radiance.

Carrier Oils also provide products with improved spreadability for easier application.

Absolute Oils

Absolute Oils have highly-concentrated fragrances that impart strong, rich aromas.

Nature Identical Essential Oils

Nature Identical Essential Oils are blends of natural Essential Oils and aromatic compounds.

They provide an identical aroma for cosmetics, soaps, and candles at a fraction of the cost, making them great alternatives to pure Essential Oils.

3% Dilutions

NDA’s 3% Dilutions are made by diluting 3% of premium Absolutes in Golden Jojoba Carrier Oil.

3% Dilutions are the most economical way to experience the benefits of rare and exotic Absolutes.

Herbal Oils

Herbal Oils are Carrier Oils infused with herbs. The final product has the properties of both the Carrier Oil and the herb.

Floral Waters

Floral Waters are blends of distilled water, fragrant Essential Oils, and Absolutes.

In cosmetic formulations, they can replace water or be used as fragrance agents. They can also function independently as deodorants, facial spritzer toners, or as cooling agents.

Synergy Blends

Synergy Blends are oil fusions that result from intermixing several pure, natural, and highly-concentrated Essential Oils. The new combination of constituents creates a unique chemical composition, resulting in a distinctly individual and extraordinary oil. The structures of these original blends make them more potent than the individual oils they comprise.

Fragrance Oils

Fragrance Oils are synthetically compounded to offer rich, complex, and long-lasting scents. They are specifically formulated for skin and hair care formulations, though many are suitable for use in soaps and candles.

Colorants

Nature Tint Colours,
Micas,
Oxides

Nature Tint colors are high-quality, water-based color additives that are specially formulated for cosmetic applications. They are dispersed in purified water and preserved with a natural preservative.

Micas are fine mineral powders that can be used to reflect light and create a pearlescent effect on skin. Commonly used in mineral make up, they are also ideal for white cosmetic bases, such as lotions, creams and body butters. Our beautiful micas will suspend within the solution resulting in a shimmering finish. NDA’s Micas are European Cosmetic & FDA approved, ensuring that they are safe to use on the face and around the eyes.

Exfoliants

Exfoliants work to remove dry, dead, flaking cells from the skin’s top layer, allowing new skin to surface. They smooth the skin, stimulate the production of new collagen, and might help improve the appearance of fine lines and mild acne.

Butters

Butters help to nourish, smoothe, and generally improve the look and feel of dry, thirsty skin with their natural oils, proteins, and fatty acids.

Botanical/Fruit Extracts

These powdered extracts are rich sources of vitamins and antioxidants. They help to nourish, hydrate, soften, smoothe, tighten, tone, cleanse, brighten, soothe, balance, strengthen, and protect the skin.

Waxes

NDA’s vegetable-based waxes help to emulsify oil-in-water suspensions in cosmetic and pharmaceutical creams and lotions, helping to increase the thickness and richness of their formulas.
