Making Cosmetics

Great attention has been focused on clay minerals since the earliest days of civilization due to their abundance in nature and potentials. The use of clay minerals for curative and protective purpose is as old as mankind itself.
Layered clays are biocompatible raw materials already successfully used in pharmacaeutical field as antiacid, antipepsinic and multifunctional excipients. Moreover, clays are commonly employed in cosmetic products as rheological modifier, texturizing and mattifying agent. Layered double hydroxide (LDHs) are clays with positively charged layers and charge-balancing exchangeable anions located in the interlayer region. Synthetic LDHs have attracted special attention because of their easily tuning chemical composition, biocompatibility and lack of toxicity. Zirconium phosphate and natural montmorillonite based clays instead have a negatively charged layers that can be used as carriers of active molecules with positive charge.
Prolabin & Tefarm has developed innovative and green synthesis methods for the production of layered clays intercalated with cosmetic ingredients having a high loading (up to 50 wt%) of active. The intercalation technology greatly increases the efficacy and the safety of the active ingredients improving the stability, the photoprotection, the bioavailability and optimizing in a controlled manner the release.
