Gelest’s extensive experience in silane chemistry led to the development of unique surface treated inorganic pigments and fillers. By changing the surface chemistry of the particles, our surface treatments can help improve your product’s performance, help reduce production time and energy costs, and increase product stability. Gelest offers standard product lines of hydrophobic, oleophilic, and hydrophilic inorganic pigments in addition to custom surface treatment unique to each customer.
The functions of surface treatment in cosmetic formulations include:
These siliceous surface treatments can show:
Many surface-treated pigments decrease oil absorption which improves skin adhesion and wear.See example formulations
Surface-treated pigments can promote easier spreading and blending on the skin for a soft, moist after-feel to liquid formulations.See example formulations
Treated pigments can enhance pigment loading while keeping viscosities low and formulations smooth.See example formulations
We offer treated pigments which disperse in aqueous formulations without milling to give fine pigment particle size and full color development.See example formulations
