Orchid is also highly recommended for color cosmetics because it is light and non-greasy and does not leave an oily or greasy residue on the skin. In foundations, lip and cream-to-powder products, Orchid enhances application properties, making the product glide on the skin easily and improving spreadability. These are important benefits for pigmented products, which tend to be draggy and difficult to spread. Orchid also leaves a smooth after-feel on the skin.
