Silica is a thickener that can also be found in a wide variety of cosmetics and personal care products. It is also called "silicon dioxide." In our products, we use silica to help a product maintain a gel-like texture. In certain products, it also works as anti-settling agent by preventing particles from precipitating out.
Polysorbate 20 is an emulsifier that can also be found in moisturizers, makeup and shampoo. It helps bind ingredients together and keep a formula from separating. In fragranced products, it also helps ensure even distribution of the fragrance. Adding emulsifiers helps ensure that our products provide the same performance use after use.
