SPHERILEX® 10 PC The versatile and eco-friendly option to microplastics in leave-on and color cosmetic applications.

“No matter what time of the day, Evonik’s SPHERILEX® makes you feel comfortable in your skin!” Using a patented manufacturing process, Evonik now offers a derived mineral ingredient that allows for spherical particle shape, a controlled pore size, and narrow particle distribution. Since these parameters are now controlled during the precipitation process, the resulting particles are much more consistent than traditional precipitated products. This combination of properties exhibits numerous benefits in cosmetics applications, such as skincare, leave on, sunscreen, decorative cosmetics as well as AP/DEO products.

A green revolution is underway that is driving major changes in formulated products throughout the Personal Care industry. SPHERILEX® is just one example of how Evonik is helping Personal Care formulators achieve better results for the end user with nature identical product. SPHERILEX® provides many of the critical performance benefits that formulators are looking for. Its unique ability to work with a wide range of ingredients makes this a go-to ingredient for sustainable formulations. SPHERILEX® does not build viscosity like other types of silica.
