Sourced in the Italian Alps, ImerCare SheerSilk premium talc is engineered using patented technology to obtain an innovative transparent structure that enhances the colour and optical and sensory properties of colour cosmetics such as make-up face powders, blushes and eye shadows.
Used in pressed make-up powders, ImerCare SheerSilk premium talc provides:
- A transparent and natural nude, blur effect
- A pearlescent, lustrous finish
- Good homogeneity and spreadability on skin
- Good cohesion and compressibility
In eye shadows, it makes an excellent base for highly pigmented, high-brilliance products. For cohesion and compressibility in pressed powders and compacts, SheerSilk premium talc demonstrates high fracture resistance and unlike conventional talc grades, it can easily be used in wet processes where it prevents cracking.
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 SheerSilk premium talc is also Cosmos certified – certificates of origin and additional documentation are available upon request.
In the pursuit of healthy white teeth, Imerys has found that toothpaste that combines kaolin and delicately engineered perlite provides highly effective dental care and meets consumers’ preference for natural ingredients.
The mineral perlite is an effective replacement for microbeads in scrubs and shower gels – not only for its exfoliating performance, but for reducing plastic pollution in oceans.
