Advantages of Wet Mica Powder in Cosmetics

Jul. 04, 2019

As a Mica Factory, let's share with you the advantages of wet mica powder in cosmetics.

The wet mica powder has good chemical stability, and the wet mica particles are fine, acid and alkali resistant, resistant to aging, and have good shielding function against ultraviolet rays. After purification by the wet method, its whiteness, hiding power, gloss, slipperiness, dispersibility, adhesion, etc. are greatly improved, it can be evenly mixed with water and glycerin, and the texture is fine and elastic, which is a high-grade cosmetic. The preferred material for the finest raw materials and cosmetic foundations can be used as an emulsion, cream, pearlescent agent, etc.

Mica is a natural mineral product with high chemical stability and is completely inert. It is safe, non-toxic and harmless, and is suitable for cosmetic requirements. (Mica is one of the components of granite and chemically stable like granite.)

Sericite Mica

Mica wafers are UV- and infrared-resistant, so they are excellent cosmetic UV-resistant agents. Because it is purely natural, non-toxic and harmless, it has the advantage that synthetic organic anti-UV agents do not have. Since the wafer is extremely thin and has a very high covering ability, only a small amount of these products are required, and an anti-ultraviolet protective agent and a brightening agent which are invisible to the naked eye are formed on the surface of the skin.

Since the mica wafer is fine and the coverage on the skin is not continuous, it does not affect the skin's breathability, and the skin feels comfortable.

Moisture does not penetrate Sericite Mica, which inhibits the evaporation of skin moisture when used in moisturizing products. Therefore, the protective layer can delay the evaporation of water and improve the moisturizing of the skin.
