orchid complex os

INCI: Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride and Cymbidium Grandiflorum (Orchid) Flower Extract

improve formulation spreadability and deliver a smooth after feel to the skin with orchid complex os

Orchid complex os extract is the infusion of carefully cultivated Cymbidium orchids in a vegetable emollient base. Orchid complex os extract is a naturally-derived light emollient that enhances product spreadability and delivers a smooth after-feel to the skin with no oily residue.

These properties and its naturally-derived origin make orchid complex os extract an ingredient of choice for products such as creams, lotions, body butters and bath products that are intended to convey a natural and mild appeal.

Orchid complex os extract is also recommended for color cosmetics because it is light and non-greasy and does not leave any residue on the skin.

Orchid complex os extract enhances the formulation application properties, making the product glide on the skin easily and improves its spreadability. These attributes are important benefits for pigmented products, which can be draggy and difficult to spread.
