Beauty products with soft-touch TPEs


KRAIBURG TPE, a global TPE manufacturer of a wide range of thermoplastic elastomer products and custom-engineered TPE solutions, offers the FC/ht series and VS/AD/HM series compounds for industry-compliant beauty tool applications.

Selfies and influencer cultures have undeniably changed people's perceptions of beauty products that have evolved to include self-empowerment and ethical awareness through the use of cruelty-free and green cosmetics. In addition, beauty enhancement now encompasses both good health and a positive attitude.
The proliferation of online video tutorials has accelerated these changes, popularizing new techniques such as sculpting, baking, highlighting, and contouring. 

Brushes of various shapes, sizes, and functions are used to create these effects. The brushes must be lightweight and sturdy, and the handles affect the weight and convenience of these brushes.
Of the materials used, thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) possess the best properties for brush handles. 
KRAIBURG TPE, a global TPE manufacturer of a wide range of thermoplastic elastomer products and custom-engineered TPE solutions, offers compounds that are ideal for use in beauty products.

TPEs for ergonomics in comfortable handling
KRAIBURG TPE’s FC/ht series provides the required functionality and design elements for massage brush handles, grips, and hairbrush bristles. 
The compounds offer a soft-touch surface and are available in clear color with a variety of effects and coloring options. The FC/ht series is also halogen-free, IEC 61249-2-21 compliant, and free of animal ingredients.
 
Plus, it adheres well to PP, allowing for flexibility in the designing of beauty products.

Non-slip TPE grip for flawless application
KRAIBURG TPE’s VS/AD/HM series is resistant to skin sebum, sunscreen, and olive oil, making it ideal for use in skin-contact tools and parts such as electronic face massage brush handles and electronic ionic hairbrush grips. 

Advantages of the VS/AD/HM series are its high scratch and abrasion resistance as well as soft-touch characteristics for application on buttons, switches, thumb wheels and other functional design elements.
The compounds are available in natural and black colors, with pre-coloring options. They can adhere with PA6, PA12, PC, ABS, PC/ABS, ASA, and SAN materials, making them a favorable material for use in beauty products.

Sustainability successes of our TPE
Besides the materials for beauty products, KRAIBURG TPE’s recent sustainability innovations include a specially developed material solution for automotive, consumer, and industry applications comprising post-consumer recycled (PCR) and post-industrial recycled (PIR) content.
