Hair care

Hair care Imerys minerals boost anti-dandruff shampoo performance and are a 100% natural solution for opacity and matte effect in hair care products.

Anti-dandruff shampoo

Our new natural perlite product ImerCare® 90P-Scrub is an excellent soft exfoliating solution for removing dandruff while boosting foam formation. The controlled particle shape and size of ImerCare® 90P-Scrub:

The controlled particle shape and size of ImerCare® 90P-Scrub:

  • Removes dandruff leaving the scalp cleaner and more comfortable
  • Boosts foam formation
  • Gives a creamy texture

The Imercare® P25 and series of products, with their milled and edgy structure, can deliver higher exfoliation for applications where you are looking to remove dead skin before delivery of medication such as in dandruff shampoos and medicated creams.

Opacifying and whiteness

New ImerCare® Opaque is ideal for providing opacity and whiteness in shampoos, body washes, soaps, and any other products where you want the look of creaminess.

ImerCare® Opaque:

  • Gives a luxurious, rich, creamy effect
  • Is neither pH nor ionic-surfactant sensitive, unlike chemical opacifiers
  • Is a one-size-fits all-natural alternative to oil-derived opacifiers           


Styling agents

Also from the ImerCare® range, our kaolin and micro-porous diatomite products confer a superior matte effect in styling waxes.

We recommend:

  • Diatomaceous earth products, ImerCare® 266D and ImerCare® 400D
  • Kaolin products, ImerCare® 04K and ImerCare® 02K-S

Hair masks

We recommend our ImerCare® 120P-Scrub perlite product for a gentle exfoliation effect in hair masks.

Dry Shampoo

Diatomaceous earth and calcium silicates can be added as boosters for water and oil absorption to deliver a cleaner feel and volume.
