Sensory Particles
SORBOSIL BFG/CBT silica granules can be used at low levels (0.5-1%) to provide a strong visual or sensory impact for toothpaste and skin care products to the consumer.At higher levels (3-5%) a strong sensory mouthfeel effect is also achieved. This can be utilised to enhance the consumer perception of a marketing claim.

PQ's flexible and customizable technology enables a range of approved pigments and opacifying materials to be used depending on the requirements.
