Tospearl New Microspheres

June 11, 2007

Two new products will be added to Momentive Performance Materials Inc.’s global line of Tospearl microspheres, which offer cosmetics companies new options to consider for enhancing the performance and positioning of skin care and color cosmetic products.

Tospearl 1110A microspheres can help increase the softness and lubricity of personal care products, while Tospearl 3000A microspheres are a cost-effective option to consider for stepping up sensory benefits for a broad range of personal care applications.

Used in many cosmetic formulations, Tospearl microspheres can be used in skin care lotions and creams. Tospearl microspheres can help deliver a soft and smooth feel, lubricity and soft focus effects that reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

In pressed powder formulations, Tospearl microspheres can offer sebum absorption and reduction of powder agglomeration.

“With the introduction of Tospearl 1110A microspheres and Tospearl 3000A microspheres, we now offer a full line of Tospearl microspheres, giving our customers the tools to respond to consumer demand by offering more sophisticated and affordable products,” said Beatriz Blanco, global marketing manager, Momentive Performance Materials. “Tospearl microspheres with lower particle size can excel at delivering soft focus effects, while the products with larger particle size, such as Tospearl 1110A microspheres, can offer excellent softness and outstanding lubricity.”

Each of the Tospearl microspheres differs in particle size and range, to support multiple performance attributes in products. Tospearl 1110A microspheres can also reduce powder agglomeration.
