PMMA imparts a “Ball Bearing” effect, increasing the payoff when used in pressed powders. Adjusting the level of usage (3 - 20%) will help to produce a cream-to-powder effect in hot pour formulations. In addition to a soft, silky feel, PMMA provides a “soft focus” effect on the skin reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles:

Spherical Silicas are highly functional and versatile materials for use in powder, anhydrous, and emulsion systems. These low micron silicas are extremely inert and compatible in all cosmetic and skin applications. Their "ball-bearing effect” imparts exceptional lubricity and gives products a luxurious feel.
