AT A GLANCE
A common mineral, this spherical particle is used to absorb oil, increase slip, and stabilize formulas.
Type of Ingredient
Why we use it
Silica, also called silicon dioxide, is a common mineral found throughout the earth; you may know it as beach sand. When combined with HDI/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer, silica forms a polymer microsphere that's crucial for C+C Serum's texture and stability. It enhances the "slip" of a formula, allowing it to apply smoothly and evenly. It also helps keep all the ingredients evenly distributed and prevents separation.
