New ingredient for whitening toothpastes
Evonik Business Line Silica recently launched a new specialty product, “Spherilex 145” for the oral care industry. White teeth and a bright, perfect smile have been the largest oral care trend over the last decade and continues today stimulated by the visual social media environment. To meet these customer demands, the company now launched the new precipitated silica as a new solution for toothpaste formulators.
Providing whiter smiles
With the launch of this product, the company introduces a new technology to the oral care industry. Thanks to the spheroidal shape of the product, high cleaning levels can be achieved while providing lower abrasion to dentin, enamel, fillings and other oral hardware. This effect also holds true in combination with other formulating whitening ingredients like phosphates and chelants.
Kristina Boedtger, Global Marketing Director for Oral Care Silica states, “Spherilex 145” is our new whitening silica providing consumers with whiter smiles from their everyday toothpastes. The COSMOS label makes it ideally suited for natural products and a great addition to our diverse portfolio. Our “Spherilex”- technology really enhances customer’s formulations.”
All silica oral care products are produced under the highest safety and quality standards. The new silica meets USP-NF ‘Dental-Type Silica’ and EP ‘Silica, dental type’ monographs, and is listed as a “derived mineral ingredient” in the Annex D of ISO 16128-1 with the INCI name “Hydrated Silica”. All Oral Care grades conform to COSMOS as a non-organic raw material and are certified Pareve, Kosher, Kosher for Passover, and Halal.
