Environmetal friendly particles

Environmetal 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.

The Geonature® glitter product line is extended by a 100 micron fine particle size. The new range consists of 9 colours based on a PET free cellulose film. From effect point of view they are very similar to traditional glitter. The small particle size allows cosmetic producers to use them for eye products like pressed and loose powders. The Geonature® product line is also available in a 200 micron particle size.

Coarse pearlescent pigments

By using a new innovative technology, named SFT, GEOTECH is capable to offer coarse synthetic pearlescent pigments with a narrow particle size distribution, approaching a traditional glitter effect. The process creates a glittering pigment with up to 98% of the particles < 150 micron. This give formulators the opportunity to create safe eye products with environmental friendly sparkling effects. The new Geopearl® SFT grade is suitable for aerosol applications. Research shows that the particles do not block the nozzle of spraycans. The SFT grade is available in 5 products showing Silver, Gold and Multicolour sparkling effects.

In-Cosmetics Global takes place in Paris, France, April 5 – 7. Visit GEOTECH at stand no. T28.
