Our formulations have passed an accelerated stability test at 40 °C. The viscosities were measured over time and showed that the formulations were stable and showed no visual degradation within this time.

Sensory Testing

Our silicone-free make-up primer was blind tested by 25 volunteers. Results showed that 88% of people would consider using this product on a regular basis, and the soft-after feel from Aevum Vita 532 was a clear sensory benefit.

Average ratings for after-feel, absorption, effectiveness, and skin-hydration were rating more than 7 out of 10.

Stickiness was rated 6 out of 10. In this case, this is within the optimum region for the formulation.

A make-up primer must be sticky enough to adhere make-up to skin flawlessly, without being unpleasant.
