Hydrated Silica. SPHERILEX® 10 PC by Evonik is a specialty silica designed as an eco-friendly alternative to microplastics. The homogeneous particle-size distribution and controlled porosity of the ingredient deliver a unique combination of properties such as silky-smooth, non-drying skin feel in cosmetics applications, such as skincare, leave on, sunscreen, decorative cosmetics as well as AP/DEO products. Its light diffusing properties are designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As an additional benefit, it has a mattifying effect. It helps to reduce and eliminate tackiness in formulations such as sunscreen. SPHERILEX® 10 PC is listed as “nature identical” by the International Natural and Organic Cosmetics Association (NATRUE). It can be used in a wide range of applications such as powder and lipstick formulations to give a silky matte look.
