Though cosmetics adorn the outside of our bodies, it’s something just
below the surface of each personal care product that counts. Lipstick must
stick. Nail enamel must gleam. And make-up must highlight a woman’s
beauty while feeling wonderful on the skin. In each of these cases and more,
Shamrock helps cosmetics makers to meet the needs of their consumers.
Our five special “families” of personal care products each contain very special
properties allowing equally special effects in cosmetics preparations.
