Title: How does hydro dipping work?
Post by: BOEbeauty on 31/07/2020 12:39:32
Hi, my name is Brooke and I am looking at developing a product that involves the concepts of Hydro dipping. I would love to know the chemical process of Hydro dipping in particular the 'sticking agent' that allows the transfer of the pattern or color from the water onto the object. Additionally, the specific chemical formula that makes up this process. My idea is to bring the concept of hydro dipping into the cosmetic industry. I am aware that Hydro dipping chemicals are harmful to the skin so I am looking to replace these chemical compounds with something similar that are not harmful to the skin.

Any Chemists and Cosmetic chemists that would be able to assist me would be greatly appreciated. The purpose of this post is for research. As I am not an expert in this field I am unsure as to whether this would actually work. So any comments would be very helpful.

Thanks :)

Hydro dipping? Are you talking about dyes?
A lot of dyes are made from plants as far as I know.  Food dyes for example are mainly made from edible foods that have dyes.
Lipstick, eyelash colouring, . . . all have dyes.
