Staying competitive in the dynamic personal care industry requires nimble product innovation to meet quickly evolving customer demands and retail trends. Grace's portfolio for personal care ingredients consists of a range of functional additives that improve processing, achieve desired properties, enhance touch/feeling, or extend the stability and shelf-life of finished products.
In personal care formulations, the physical characteristics of silica can alter product tactile qualities or enhance other properties such as:
- Improving skin-feel
- Adding film uniformity
- Providing mattifying effect
- Replacing polymer microspheres in exfoliant applications
Grace creates micronized silica particles with highly-defined pore structures, resulting in porosity that can be tailored to specific needs. This unique morphology delivers outstanding adsorption, particle size distribution, and greater internal surface area. That means fewer formulation ingredients, simplified manufacturing, and superior product performance.
Highly effective moisture scavengers called zeolites can provide additional functionalities such as sensory, self-healing and abrasive properties.
The versatile properties of our SYLOID® silica and SYLOSIV® molecular sieve products allow them to be used across multiple personal care applications such as sun care, skin care, hair care, nail care and cosmetics.
