EMD Chemicals Rolls Out RonaFlair Boroneige

January 29, 2013

EMD Chemicals’ performance materials division recently launched RonaFlair Boroneige functional fillers for cosmetic applications in the US.

RonaFlair Boroneige functional fillers consist exclusively of boron nitride, a powder substrate with a pure-white color and heavy metal values that are far below the statutory limit values, according to the company. Boron nitride is a common functional filler that is new to the EMD Chemicals product range. RonaFlair Boroneige functional fillers are said to have three properties that cosmetic manufacturers often desire in functional fillers: they have a mattifying effect, give cosmetic formulations a smooth texture, and provide for a soft-focus effect, which renders wrinkles and skin imperfections virtually invisible.

These functional fillers are available in different particle sizes and can be used in a wide variety of cosmetic applications.

In April, Merck KGaA (Darmstadt, Germany) signed a cooperation agreement with ESK Ceramics GmbH & Co. KG (Kempten, Germany) to market ESK’s Boroneige functional fillers, co-branded with Merck KGaA’s RonaFlair functional filler brand name.
