Q & A with the Formulator

Zosimos Botanicals' Owner/Formulator, Linda Stein, responds to a customer's question about Concealer:



Hello, thanks for the newsletter.  Hey, I have a question about your foundation and concealer.  I use the mineral powder foundation primarily, but I use the concealer under it in the winter because my skin gets dry. So now that summer's over, I'm getting it back out, but it seems to have dried out quite a bit, making it much more difficult to use.  Any ideas for rehydrating it a bit?



Jennifer, to revive your concealer, try scooping it out of the jar with a butter knife, and mixing in some light oil (sesame or sunflower).  Very, very little; less than 1/8 teaspoon.  Otherwise it will be too greasy.  It may help to heat it a bit in the microwave for 25-45 seconds to soften before trying to blend in the oil.  Then scoop back into the jar.  Let me know how this turns out.



Hi Linda - I tried this and it worked like a charm!  I added two drops of Jojoba Oil after heating the concealer in a bowl (it went totally liquid, which I was worried about for one second, but it was very easy to mix, and it firmed back up pretty quickly).  I used a spatula to scrape it back into the jar, so I lost very little in the process.  It's as soft as it was when I first got it.  Thanks for your help!
