A pioneer in the field of sensory powders

Orgasol® Cosmetics powder has become, in the last decades,  the go-to partner of the most demanding manufacturers looking for high-performance powders with innovative functionalities.

Orgasol® Cosmetics ultrafine powders are mainly known for their sensorial benefits. Their spheroidal shape improves spreading, provides easy glide-on application and leaves a velvety feeling and powdery finish on the skin. The Orgasol® Cosmetics product signature touch is predominantly velvety and delicately creamy.  The different grades allow you to choose the degree of velvetiness as well as the covering and spreading properties that will best suit your formulation.

Think multi-functional. Way beyond mere sensory powders, Orgasol® Cosmetics powders deliver multiple additional benefits. Thanks to their soft focus effect, they contribute to achieve instant optical perfection. Their internal porosity offers long lasting sebum and shine control. Some Orgasol® Cosmetics product porous microspheres can be used as ready to use delivery systems of active ingredients – their structure allows the continuous release of the actives with closer and long lasting contact with the stratum corneum. In the formulation of compact powders, with their good compaction capacity, Orgasol® Cosmetics powder have shown to be highly effective processing aids.
