Research Shows Microsphere Silica Gels Improve Cosmetic and Skincare Product Formulations

Cosmetic and skincare formulations use a precise balance of ingredients to achieve the desired structure and performance of the final product. Formulators must understand the chemistry of each ingredient and how they will work together to develop products that deliver the desired performance properties like absorption, smooth application and stability, to name a few. Additionally, […]

Fine Silica Fillers Improve Performance and Reduce the Cost of 3D Printing Resins

3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is the process of creating solid three-dimensional objects, layer by layer, with the use of computer design modeling. It is commonly used to make prototypes and models used for market research, testing and validation purposes. Because 3D printing speeds up the prototyping process, it enables manufacturers to bring […]

The importance of silica quality in providing accurate and consistent HPLC results
