Consistently high product quality is of particularly great importance in the pharmaceutical applications segment. Our pharmakaolin B 860 is a brilliant white clay that meets all requirements of the Phamacopoea Europaea for 'kaolin, heavy/kaolinum ponderosum' for external and internal application. This requirement profile is verified and certified for each batch by an external laboratory at the Quarzwerke Group. Pharmakaolin B 860 is characterized by a very high content of kaolinite, with all the advantages of this natural mineral. This makes pharmakaolin B 860 a valued and proven raw material in the pharmaceutical industry for the production of pastes, tablets, powders and ointments.

The properties:

  • White
  • Odourless
  • Fine particles
  • Soft touch and feel
  • Insoluble in water and organic solvents
  • Easily dispersible in water
  • High binding capacity for liquids
  • Non-hygroscopic

The shelf life of pharmakaolin B 860

The product shelf life of pharmakaolin B 860 is practically unlimited with regard to its mineral properties. If stored in a dry place in its undamaged original packaging, this concerns all properties listed in our analysis certificates in accordance with Ph.Eur., with the exception of 'microbial impurities'. Our experience to date has shown that, subject to dry, dark storage, at temperatures of about 20°C and in its closed original packaging, the microbial values remain within the limits of the monography 'kaolin, heavy' of the Ph.Eur. for at least 3 years.

Recently, our pharmakaolin is also included in a cosmetic “peel-off mask” for the porous cleansing of the facial skin. The skinbecomes animated and appears more vital and radiant. For more information, see this Youtube video.
