    Hi There,

    I am getting crazy to get the translation into spanish of "lame agents" the translation is about the quimic composition of a cosmetic cleanser.

    My best guess is Agente de imperfección, but I am preatty sure.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Can you give us the context in which the expression occurs?

    It is a list of compounds, there is not context, besides to be a description of a chemical formulation of a cosmetic product

    After finishing here, you asked this question in English Only. The answers in that thread were very thorough, so to tell the truth, you have a great deal of context you could have returned to give your helpers here. Using that thread as a basis, I would translate your phrase as sustancia metálica lamé or sustancia metálica lustrosa.

    Entendemos por agente dispersante: Aditivo químico utilizado por los farmacéuticos para producir una distribución uniforme de los ingredientes de un producto, como en las emulsiones dermatológicas que contienen aceite y agua.

    The lame agent is usually a metallic oxide such as iron oxide or synthetic mica which gives the glitter effect in cosmetics.
    I agree with frida-nc's suggestion.
