Poudres sensorielles

We offer powders that are often used as feel enhancers in make-up and skin care products. The shape, size, chemical structure and optical properties of these fillers are driving the sensorial experience. From beads, lamellar particles, natural fibers to starch derivatives, we have the solution for you


Micro-spherical powders are often used as feel enhancers in make-up and skin care applications. The sensorial experience of these fillers is driven by the shape, size and chemical nature of the beads. They also provide immediate optical and blurring effects that can make skin looks smoother and decrease fine lines, for a camera-ready look.

Alternatives au Talc

Talc has many uses in cosmetics and other personal care products. For example, it may be used to absorb moisture, to prevent caking, to make facial makeup opaque, or to improve the feel of a product. However, in response to the growing trend of replacing talc with better received ingredients, we have come up with mineral sensory powders designed to substitute talc in cosmetic applications.
