Environmental friendly particles
During the last few years GEOTECH launched several sustainable alternatives for traditional polyester based glitter particles. The introduction of coarse pearlescent pigments and cellulose based glitter provides cosmetic chemists the possibility to create environmental friendly sparkling formulations.
At the upcoming In-Cosmetics Global exhibition in Paris we will add more sustainable particles to our product portfolio.

Are you looking for inspiration to develop new, sustainable formulations with special effect pigments? Our marketing team and cosmetic chemists created 3 innovative colour concepts; ‘Vibrant Iridescent’, ‘Colourful Pink to Gold’ and ‘Inspirative Metallics’.
The concepts contain lip, eye and nail formulations for colour cosmetics with environmental friendly coarse pearlescent pigments and biodegradable glitter. They give an impression of the possibilities to develop trendy, plastic free sparkling cosmetic products.
Distributor award 2021
Our partner PORO, headquartered in Salzburg, Austria, is the winner of the GEOTECH Distributor Award 2021. The cooperation goes back to 2007 when Gerhard Schreier and Harold van Haren turned the existing cooperation into a formal partnership.
‘As a medium sized company with sales in 80 countries all over the world our distributors are of critical importance and have a crucial position in our sales strategy. Without partners like PORO we would not be able to keep our current position in the market. In 2021 PORO showed the largest increase in sales of all distributors. They well deserve the 2021 award because of this great result and our long term, fruitful and pleasant relationship’, says Harold van Haren, Managing Director of GEOTECH.
Traditionally the winner receives a Delftware plate with inscription.
