An eco-friendly pearlescence for gels and shampoos

  • Pearlescence
  • Natural, eco-friendly
  • One-size-fits-all solution

Our ImerCare Opaline range is an eco-friendly, premium talc that imparts pearlescence to cosmetic gel and shampoo formulations.

Most pearlizing agents used in cosmetics are based on synthetic ingredients such as glycol stearate derivatives, which pose a potential threat to the environment and are difficult to formulate.

ImerCare Opaline premium talc is a 100% natural solution that can be used to replace conventional pearlizing agents. ImerCare Opaline premium talc has been specifically engineered using proprietary, patented technology to obtain a particle thickness, shape and particle size distribution that confer a highly pearlescent effect in shower gels and shampoos.

ImerCare Opaline premium talc:

  • Confers a highly pearlescent effect to shampoos and shower gels 
  • Can be used at all pH levels and with all ingredients – even ionic
  • Is a one-size-fits-all solution
  • Enhances consumer perception of well-being and luxury
  • Complies with industry microbiological standards without the need for irradiation

All our cosmetic products are natural, high quality, chemically inert and offer good skin tolerance. They are not treated with chemicals during processing. These attributes enable them to be used in cosmetic products that comply with cosmetic directive regulation (EC) n° 1223/2009.

ImerCare Opaline premium talc is also Cosmos approved – certificates of origin and additional documentation are available upon request.
