Description
Description: Fine mica (<15 micrometer) combined with spherical silica (250 nanometer), silica beads act as ball bearings allowing mica platelets to slide across each other on the skin (leads to extremely soft & velvet feel). Fine gray powder, no odor, pH: 8.6 (10% aqueous suspension). Insoluble, but miscible in water.

CAS: 7631-86-9, 12001-26-2

INCI Name: Mica, silica

Properties: Great filling agent for texture & consistency, provides extremely soft & velvet feel when applied to the skin, improves viscosity & thickness of emulsions, decreases drying time of liquid eyeliners, improves binding of powders.
