  4. Boil the fabric for 1 minute
  5. Remove, rinse and dry

Pylam Pearlizer

Pylam is excited to announce a new product—our Pylam Pearlizer. The Pylam Pearlizer creates a pearlescent effect or appearance. Specifically, the Pylam Pearlizer is designed to be used with cosmetics and cleansers, such as hair conditioners, shampoos, foaming bath products, liquid bath soaps, liquid hand soaps, skin creams and lotions, liquid dish soaps, and more. If you manufacture or formulate one of these products, or something similar, and are looking to add a shimmering, pearlescent effect, then our Pearlizer is exactly what you need.

Pylam Pearlizeris a liquid, surfactant blend. Composed of Glycol Distearate, Laureth-4, and Cocamidopropyl Betaine, pearlescent effects in your product can be achieved with as little as 1%; meaning that only 1% of your product’s composition is the actual Pearlizer. Different levels of pearlescent appearance can be achieved when more Pearlizer is used in your formulation, however, we do not recommend amounts over 5%.

The Pylam Pearlizer can also be used in conjunction with many of our dyes and pigments. If you’re looking to add luster to your product for which you already have a chosen color, or if you’re looking for a completely new pearlescent color, we have everything you need. Known for the quality of our colorants and our ability to create custom blends specifically for any product, we are excited to add the Pylam Pearlizer to our list of offerings. As with our other colorant products, we are happy to offer Pylam Pearlizer in small package sizes, of 10lb and 25lb containers. So if you’re looking to add a luxurious, shimmering look to your product, then contact us today and check out the Pylam Pearlizer.
