Cosmetics "These products contain Boron Nitride,
a raw ingredient used in the ceramic industry. The Boron Nitride used
in our products is of cosmetic grade, meaning that the impurities
have been removed by the manufacturer for cosmetic use. We use the
ingredient because of its unequaled slip and positive effect on application
to the skin."
Boron nitride powder is composed of flat, hexagonal,
plate-like crystals that can freely slide over one another, which
gives the powder a lubricious, silky texture.
