What Are Exfoliating Micropowders?

Axalta’s exfoliating micropowders are pure biopolymers with an average particle size of either 315 µm and 630 µm. They are used for personal care products in rinse-off formulations.

Over the last years, Axalta’s Research & Development focused on sustainable solutions with a reduced environmental footprint, the result was natural exfoliating scrubs: The Gotalene® RS Series.

What Does Our Powder Look Like?

The specifically engineered shape of our particles allows smooth and efficient exfoliation.

How Does Exfoliation Work?

Mechanical exfoliation has a threefold effect on the epidermis:

1.       It removes horny layer cells.

2.       It stimulates the basal cells of the epidermis.

3.       It improves the turnover of the cells.

It also helps to obtain a cleaner and clearer complexion.

What Are Bio-Based Micropowders and Their Exfoliation Efficiency?

What are bio-based micropowders?

Our Gotalene® RS range is based on GMO-free biodegradable Polylactic Acid (PLA). Axalta’s core competency is the micronisation of the PLA granules to obtain a powder with appropriate particle size distribution and quality consistency from batch to batch.

How efficient are exfoliating micropowders?

A sensory test and in-use test on a user panel of 20 volunteers showed that Gotalene RS is highly effective, tolerated and performs even better than traditional PE beads.

Is Exfoliating Powder Available in Different Colors?

In order to enhance the formulator’s creativity, Axalta developed several colors. Two different blue shades are already available; others are available upon request.
