Dow Home and Personal Care’s Luminous Facial Serum, formulated with the new Dowsil EP-9610 cosmetic powder, was named first place winner at the in-cosmetics Korea Formulation Awards.

The Luminous Facial Serum was ranked first among 30 formulations, which were judged based on sensory and performance, uniqueness, benefits to formulators and benefits to end customers.

Benefits include no aggregation; a low agglomeration level; consistency that is easy to disperse; and flexibility to create a variety of textures and thickness in a variety of formats, including solid, powder, gel/paste and liquid.
