Body Powder

Body Powder ImerCare® cosmetic kaolins and calcium silicates for body powders

ImerCare®  cosmetic kaolins make excellent body powders and provide great fragrance delivery for scented powders.


ImerCare® 6KS kaolin is ideal for improved sebum absorption while still offering a soft touch in body powders. Kaolin also offers great skin adhesion to give a longer powdery aesthetic while also increasing the matting potential in the powder.

Calcium Silicates

Are excellent at delivering fragrance over time due to their high microporous structure.  It is also excellent for the creation of a dry delivery of liquid actives. They are also a great processing aid, create free-flowing powders, and increase oil and water absorption.


All Imerys cosmetic products are natural, high quality, chemically inert, and offer good skin tolerance. They are not treated with chemicals during processing. These attributes enable them to be used in cosmetic products that comply with cosmetic directive regulation (EC) n° 1223/2009.
