As a specialty silica, Sipernat can be used to replace polymer materials such as polyethylene, and polypropylene that have so far been used to improve sensory properties of cosmetics formulations. This functional additive has been specially developed as a substitute for microplastics in toning creams, foundations, make-up, and face powders. According to Evonik, “Sipernat 11 PC improves the sensory properties, leaving a better, more elegant skin feel. It also acts as an optical blurring agent, mattifies the skin surface, and reduces visible wrinkles.

This new ingredient adds up to Evonik’s existing range of alternatives to microplastics, which includes the Sipernat 2200 PC and Sipernat 22 PC additives for shower gels and face and body peels.

All Sipernat PC products (Sipernat 11 PC, Sipernat 22 PC, and Sipernat 2200 PC) have been listed as nature identical by the International Natural and Organic Cosmetics Association (NATRUE), a globally active association that works for the promotion of natural skin care. In addition, all the three products have Ecocert certification and can therefore be used in natural cosmetic products,” explains Evonik in a release.

To date, Sipernat PC grades are produced in Europe, however further expansion to Asia and North America is planned, added Evonik.
