We’ve produced a range of technical fabrics used in personal care and beauty products.
At Lesterdale we’ve applied a knowledge and expertise in fabric absorbency, texture and porosity to create performance grades designed specifically for cosmetic application or skin cleansing. We also manufacture and convert tear resistant depilatory waxing strips for fast and efficient hair removal.
How are technical fabrics
used in Cosmetics?
In cosmetics nonwoven fabrics are used to control absorbency and retain liquid or powder on the surface of the make-up applicator, technical grades are often multi-layered to manage pore structure and avoid soaking and wastage. Effective application is combined with luxurious feel and ultimate softness to reduce the probability of skin irritation and more advanced features can include antimicrobial and hypoallergenic variations.
For cosmetic removal and skincare highly absorbent fluffy fibres are used to produce a fresh silky feel with textured surfaces applied to enhance cleansing efficiency. In more advanced products the technical textile can be impregnated with skin treatments or preparations for premium skincare. Lesterdale also produce depilatory waxing strips used in hair removal. A specialist tear resistant technical fabric is coated for additional tensile strength and effective adhesion.
Selecting the right technical fabric for cosmetic application or removal can significantly benefit product quality. We have applied our expertise within absorbency and retention to create fabrics that offer premium performance, cleanliness and comfort. We have all the manufacturing and conversion experience to produce technical fabrics tailored to your product or application and once you’re completely satisfied with performance, we’ll cut, slit and trim it to your required size or shape.
