Specialty chemicals and materials firm Evonik announced an expansion of its silica exfoliating particles portfolio on Tuesday with the addition of two new products – SIPERNAT 250 PC and SIPERNAT 9000 PC – that can be used in natural cosmetic products in lieu of microplastics. 

SIPERNAT 250 PC particles are tailored for use on normal skin in body scrub products, while SIPERNAT 9000 PC, a harder and more durable product, can be applied to areas of the body with less sensitively, like feet. 

The products complement the existing assortment of SIPERNAT 22 PC and SIPERNAT 2200 PC, which are preferred in formulations for facial and body care products for sensitive skin. As a result, the four SIPERNAT PC products of Evonik now cover virtually all rinse-off formulation needs in addition to offering benefits such as global availability and controlled, consistent quality.

All SIPERNAT PC products are listed as nature-identical by the International Natural and Organic Cosmetics Association (NATRUE), a globally active association dedicated to promoting natural skin care.

Moreover, all four products are certified with the COSMOS label and can therefore be used in natural cosmetic products. They are INCI-classified as hydrated silica, which makes them “derived mineral ingredients” in the definition of ISO 16128-1.
