SOLESPHERE™ microspherical silica gels enhance the surface smoothness and dispersibility of cosmetics and skincare products. They can be added to SPF cosmetics, skincare and sunscreen formulations to provide oil and perspiration absorption, give a matte appearance, or enhance frictional properties like smoothness and abrasiveness.
SOLESPHERE gels have a lower coefficient of friction than titanium dioxide and other popular fillers. On a molecular level, they move more freely to provide a superior tactile feel. They are ideal replacements for Nylon 12, PMMA and other plastic beads in cosmetics and personal care products. They are environmentally safe and can enhance formulations with a smoother texture.
