Skin should radiate freshness, hair must be silky and glossy, ingredients must be gentle and harmless to the user – the demands customers place on cosmetic goods are generally very high. Many customers are placing increased value on environmentally friendly products, a factor which is even more important for the raw materials used in organic cosmetics.

Silica are a perfect replacement for microplastics used in exfoliating products, for example. Whether you are looking to produce a gently cleansing lotion or a rough scrub product – you can decide which particle size and hardness you need. Our silica also work as gelling agents, ensuring creams and emulsions have the perfect viscosity. Moreover, they significantly improve the structure and stability of products – for lipsticks and makeup, too.

Manufacturers of color cosmetics benefit from the subtle matte effect of the silica and the smart powder-to-cream concept. And you can also rely on the special silica from Evonik in hair care and hairstyling products, where they are used to ensure the desired consistency. You see, there is almost no application, where silica cannot improve your formulation. We will gladly help you create unique cosmetics!
