ImerCare® Matte

ImerCare Matte is our natural solution for a nude matte effect in gels and creams, liquid foundations and pressed powders.

Superior mattifying with an eco-friendly mineral

ImerCare Matte white kaolin provides a superior mattifying effect in gels and creams, liquid foundations and pressed powders. Due to its unique morphology, ImerCare Matte kaolin absorbs sebum and confers an immediate, natural matte effect to the skin.
