The secret of flawless skin
SENSOCEL®+ are ultra-fine hydrophobic cellulose powders obtained during a special production process. Due to the hydrophobisation, SENSOCEL®+ brings an exclusive skin feel to skin care products and colour cosmetics. Thereby SENSOCEL®+ convinces with an extraordinary soft-focus effect without a major impact on the viscosity of the formulation. SENSOCEL®+ is able to imitate the skin feel and texture of synthetic powders like PMMA, PE or Nylon on a 100% natural basis. Unlike microplastic powders, SENSOCEL®+ is 100% biodegradable under fresh water conditions (according to ISO 14851) and therefore harmless to human and nature.
Why use microplastic powders, when it is also possible to formulate “green”?
