The Sunrise® mica product portfolio contains products of pure natural and synthetic mica. The natural mica range is a wet-ground product produced from high purity flake mica concentrates, by a slow, frictional delamination process. It is renowned for its optical properties.
Sunrise® Crystal synthetic mica is an artificial mica. This fluorphlogopite grade offers outstanding colour purity, higher transparency and a lower content of impurities.
Due to its natural sheen Sunrise® mica is the perfect choice for cosmetics. It offers high UV stability, low abrasiveness, excellent lubricity, good skin adhesion and good resistance to heat, weather and chemicals. It creates buildable coverage without completely covering the skin. In colour cosmetics Sunrise® mica is used to give balance and consistency to pressed powders. Mica gives a smooth texture and adds a bit of shine to the product surface.
Sunrise® SVA mica is a special Lauroyl Lysine treated grade in the mica portfolio which provides an exceptional smooth texture, soft feeling and good skin adhesion.
Sunrise® mica can also be used as a highly chemical and weather resistant filler in coatings.

Sunrise® mica furthermore helps to increase resistance to water penetration and brightens the tone of colored pigments.
