Omyacare® S 75-KP and Omyacare® S 95-KP minerals are now approved by the non-profit ECOCERT organization for natural raw materials. The certificate confirms that both ingredients are natural, environmentally friendly and sustainable. Bright-white Omyacare® particles sourced from natural calcium carbonate can be used as cleansing agents with different grades of abrasiveness that adjust thecolor, viscosity and texture of toothpaste and rinse off applications.
The diversity of particle sizes within the Omyacare® product range means they can be used in a variety of applications, such as soap, toothpaste, tooth tabs or handwash tabs. In soap applications Omyacare® enhances the creaminess, the speed and amount of foam generation. For toothpaste, particles guarantee the perfect level of desired abrasion in the final formula. Used in tabs, the particle structure provides many interlocking contact points. When compacted during dry granulation or tableting, these ensure greater mechanical strength. The high-purity and controlled low microbiology of Omyacare® particles reduce interactions between trace elements and active ingredients to a minimum.
Stefan Lander, Vice President for Consumer Goods at Omya, claims: “With Omyacare® we focus on tailored particles based solely on natural calcium carbonate. This allows us to produce a sustainable ingredient with a very low carbon footprint.”

Under the motto „Working towards a sustainable world“, the organization approves sustainable raw materials. Applications like Omyacare®, that are certified with ECOCERT have to meet high ecological standards. They are non-GMO, responsibly sourced and support biodiversity.
