Our ImerCare® range of 100% natural minerals is ideal for superior optical properties in make-up, gels and shampoos.

Better optics in make-up, gels and shampoos 

ImerCare minerals are excellent, 100% natural solutions for boosting the optical properties of make-up, gels and shampoos. ImerCare® Velluto premium talc has been designed to provide enhanced opacity in superior-to-full coverage concealers, foundations and powders, including corrective and camouflage products. 

ImerCare Velluto provides premium talc:

  • Superior, even coverage
  • Satin finish
  • Good homogeneity and spreadability on skin

For whiteness, try ImerCare® K kaolins, which also provide enhanced opacity in face powders, creams and foundations. Imercare 02K(S) is ideal for minimizing usage of titanium dioxide in formulations that utilize it.

ImerCare® Opaque kaolin is ideal for providing whiteness and opacity and a rich, creamy texture in shampoos and shower gels and is an excellent alternative to titanium dioxide in soap formulation.

We can also recommend:

  • ImerCare® Matte for a natural matte effect in day creams and lipsticks
  • ImerCare® 04K for a semi-matte effect in eye shadows
  • ImerCare® 2C natural white opacifier for solid cosmetics, a calcium carbonate option

Highly absorbent ImerCare®diatomaceous earth grades are excellent for creating a matte effect in hair styling waxes and color cosmetics. 

We recommend:

  • ImerCare® 06D and 400D for matting hair styling waxes and for matte lipsticks
