Why the ‘faux’ gel does not make a gel

By Emily SiskindSeptember 20, 2018|Posted September 20, 2019|1.8k Views0 CommentsThe new artificial gel formulation, ‘Faux’ has been praised for its ability to ‘fake’ a lot of things, but is there a way to make it look real?

The new artificial formulation, Faux, is a combination of the same ingredients as a traditional gel, but with the added benefit of making the formula appear thinner and less oily.

But why?

The answer is surprisingly simple.

The new formula is comprised of a blend of five different ingredients: natural ingredients like olive oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil, and coconut oil, which help it blend together. 

“It’s all about creating the illusion of being a gel, which is what the natural ingredients are supposed to do,” said Julia Lee, the senior product manager at Lemon Beauty. 

The product is now available in Lionel, and Lea Beauty, but the formula is also available at Beauty Insider. 

I was able to try the product, which has an amazing blend of natural ingredients, for myself on a day when I really needed a quick fix for my dry skin. 

As you can see in the photos, the Faux Gel doesn’t look as slick as the other gel formulations I’ve tried, but that’s probably due to the natural oil in the formula. 

A quick review of the ingredients that make up the Fax Faux Gel looks like this: Olive Oil: This oil is made up of olive oil (the natural source of oil) and jojavana oil (an oil that’s been extracted from the leaves of the jojaweed plant).

The jojava oil is also a great moisturizer and anti-aging oil.

It’s rich and moisturizing, but not oily. 

Jojoba Oil: Jojoba is a high-quality oil that is rich in bioactive compounds that improve skin health.

The jojo oil can be found in olive, canola, and sunflower seeds, and is rich and emollient. 

Avocado Oil: Avocado oil is a natural, non-gmo vegetable oil that contains many beneficial antioxidants. 

Coconut Oil: Coconut oil has been touted as an anti-oxidant, a moisturizer, and an antiinflammatory.

It also contains polyphenols, which have been linked to a reduction in the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. 

Oleo-coconut oil is derived from the coconuts of the coco family.

It is richly emollients, hydrating, and antihistamine. 

Egg yolk: The egg yolk is made from the yolk of the yam plant, a common ingredient in many natural products.

The egg is also rich in nutrients, and can help with the absorption of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

I’ve noticed a lot more gel formulas on the market lately, including Gelacis, L’Oreal, Rimmel, and Odeo. 

Why are there so many gel formulas? 

As more and more brands are moving away from the traditional formula, they’re moving away from using the natural oils found in the natural plant sources.

This is also happening with other natural ingredients that may contain chemicals that may not be good for the skin.

 In order to make a gel formula look good, you need to find a way for the ingredients to blend together in a way that doesn’t result in a ‘clumpy’ gel. 

So, why does this matter? 

When you look at a gel formulation from a natural source, it’s usually made up of a lot of different ingredients. 

You don’t want to look like a fraud. 

For example, Sigma Beauty’s GELASIS Gel has a similar blend of ingredients as Lola Gels. 

But it also has a very different formula that is made of olive oils and jojo oils. 

Sight unseen GELSIS also has a similar makeup to LOLA GLS  that is made with avocado oil. 

Lana GSL is also made of avocado oil and jojo oil, but it has a more matte finish. 

Natural oils are often made from plants like peanuts, almonds, and olives. 

GALA has been making its own natural oil for several years now, but the brand is now using a different oil from a plant called Cucumber Oil. 

Both natural oils and gel formulas are supposed to be the same, but in reality, natural oil can have
