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.
