After discussing the basic properties of oil, how to choose the right one for cosmetic formulas becomes even more important. Director Qiu proposed the 4 major standards in choosing cosmetic oil: 1. Carrier function; 2. Feeling on skin; 3. Active effect; 4. Assigned type.
Oil provides a sense of pleasure when using cosmetics on skin. It can also protect skin from aging, at the same time, it also promotes active molecules to get into skin. Therefore, the choice of oil and by making good use of it, is the responsibility of every formula engineer.

Today, digitalisation has completely changed our lives.
