MicroPowders – Product innovations for 2020

Observation of the cosmetics market shows that modern consumers are showing an increasing preference for formulations containing few ingredients, which they expect to be sustainable, plastic-free, biodegradable, and overall as “green” as possible. 

In response to this demand, Micro Powders has developed new raw materials suitable for producing all kinds of care products that fulfil these consumer wishes.
