Examples

Foundation usability, durability (cosmetics)

Adopted Product: H-51
The product was adopted for use by a customer with no previous experience using spherical silica.
Compounding H-51 made it possible to create a texture that feels smooth when applied and hides wrinkles, blotches, and freckles with minimal shine. These qualities were rated highly by customers.

Improved sunscreen tackiness (cosmetics)

Adopted Product: H-53
H-53 was adopted for use by a customer looking for a way to reduce the tackiness of a sunscreen.
The customer had used the spherical porous silica of another company (oil absorption of approx. 100 mL/100 g) but liked the refreshing dry finish of H-53 made possible by its high oil absorption.

Loose powder, resin bead alternative (cosmetics)

Adopted Product: NP-30
NP-30 was adopted for use by a customer looking for an alternative to resin beads.
The non-porous NP-30 has a smooth and creamy texture that does not feel dry and has a natural finish, qualities which were rated highly by the customer.

Matting (paints)

Product used: H-33
H-33 efficiently exhibits matting effects through the diffused reflections produced by the irregular surface of porous silica.
The amount of additives can be reduced, and the particle diameter of 3 μm allows use with thin film materials, qualities which were highly rated by the customer.

Provides anti-blocking properties (films)

Adopted Products: NP-30, NP-100, NP-200
The product was adopted for use by a customer with no previous experience using spherical silica.
They were highly rated for preventing films from adhering to one another thanks to their shape as a spherical silica and basic role in enhancing barrier properties.
