Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Evonik
Silica (> 99.8%). AEROSIL® 200 by Evonik is an anti-caking, free-flowing, gelling, suspending, dispersing and thickening agent. It is hydrophilic fumed silica which is used to transform cosmetic oils to highly viscous gels. It produces largely transparent products with a markedly pseudoplastic flow behavior. In toothpaste formulations, whether in all-silica formulations, in carbonate pastes, or in those using phosphate abrasives, it gives the rheological body. It can help increase the volume of the hair, counteracting the flattening effect of the conditioning agents. It prevents a premature reaction and caking of powdered colorant component (hair dyes). It helps improve the homogeneous distribution of the pigments in color cosmetics. It prevents the agglomeration of active ingredients—generally aluminum and zirconium salts (AP salts)-helping to ensure that they are evenly distributed and have an intense and long-lasting effect. It also avoids white residue. AEROSIL® 200 is suggested for use in skin care, oral care, hair care (beaches, dyes, conditioners), make-up (powder, nail polish, lipstick/lip gloss) and antiperspirants & deodorants (sticks) applications.
