Minerals for cosmetics and body care products

As a cer­ti­fied dis­trib­u­tor for min­er­als, MAGNESIA sup­plies man­u­fac­tur­ers of cos­met­ic prod­ucts and per­son­al care prod­ucts world­wide. In our exten­sive port­fo­lio you will find a range of prod­ucts for almost all for­mu­la­tions com­mon­ly used today, such as beau­ty balms, serums, masks, dry sham­poo, but also for clas­sic soaps, lotions, show­er gels and sun pro­tec­tion prod­ucts. MAGNESIA min­er­als are also pre­ferred for well­ness prod­ucts and out­door products.

Diverse areas of application for minerals

From the results of reg­u­lar in-house trend analy­sis in the con­sumer goods sec­tor, we derive ideas that bring added val­ue for our B2B-cus­tomers and their prod­ucts. MAGNESIA offers inno­v­a­tive solu­tions for required para­me­ters and func­tions that you can use for your prod­ucts and for­mu­la­tions, such as

set­ting of the pH-val­ue or viscosity

use in peelings

antibac­te­r­i­al or absorbent additive

abra­sive effect or use as clean­ing body

sta­bi­liz­er or chelat­ing agent

welling or opaci­fy­ing agent

High quality mineral compounds for cosmetic formulations

Focus on cosmetic regulations

Man­u­fac­tur­ers of safe, high-qual­i­ty cos­met­ic prod­ucts around the world rely on our exper­tise. This includes com­pli­ance with reg­u­la­to­ry require­ments. The MAGNESIA prod­uct range, there­fore, com­plies with the fol­low­ing applic­a­ble standards:

Euro­pean Reg­u­la­tion — (EC) No. 1223/2009 on cos­met­ic products

EU direc­tives on con­t­a­m­i­nants, GMO, nano­ma­te­r­i­al, aller­gens, resid­ual sol­vents, etc.

COSMOS / ECOCERT standards

Supplier qualification as an integrated process

As part of the qual­i­fi­ca­tion process of our sup­pli­ers, we car­ry out appro­pri­ate audits and ensure that require­ments are met. Even after suc­cess­ful qual­i­fi­ca­tion, com­pli­ance with legal require­ments is reg­u­lar­ly assessed. Our inte­grat­ed process ensures that all changes at sup­pli­er facil­i­ties or to the prod­uct that could affect man­u­fac­tur­ing or test para­me­ters are checked and approved before implementation.

MAGNESIA makes the difference

MAGNESIA not only offers excel­lent addi­tives, active ingre­di­ents and excip­i­ents, but also a com­pre­hen­sive ser­vice that our long-term cus­tomers par­tic­u­lar­ly appre­ci­ate. Qual­i­ty man­age­ment, doc­u­ment man­age­ment and the nec­es­sary cer­ti­fi­ca­tions and audits of sup­pli­ers and prod­ucts are an inte­gral part of our ser­vice. Furthermore

fixed con­tact per­sons make the coop­er­a­tion a real part­ner­ship for both sides, which ben­e­fits from work­ing hand in hand. In short: We think along with you, and the up-to-date­ness of the doc­u­ments required by qual­i­ty man­age­ment is proac­tive­ly provided,

one of our suc­cess prin­ci­ples is called “trans­paren­cy”. We are hap­py to com­ply with the request of our man­u­fac­tur­er part­ners to dis­close the ori­gin of sub­stances and mate­ri­als ordered,

seam­less mon­i­tor­ing of the sup­ply chain is guar­an­teed, in par­tic­u­lar to meet our due dili­gence oblig­a­tions as min­er­al trad­er and to make the pro­cure­ment process and stor­age as trans­par­ent as possible.

short deliv­ery times are a cru­cial fac­tor for our cus­tomers. We, there­fore, either use our own ware­house for stock­ing pur­pos­es or a suit­ably qual­i­fied and mon­i­tored exter­nal ware­house keeper,

MAGNESIA, as a reli­able part­ner, safe­guards the intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty rights of your prod­ucts. We treat your trade secrets with absolute con­fi­den­tial­i­ty and the pro­tec­tion of cus­tomer data is one of our values.
