Toothbrush in a bubble

Rhodia’s Tixosil® silica range for oral care, animal nutrition and food applications is available in standard grades and Micropearl silica.

Superior performance

Tixosil® carrier agents have outstanding absorption capacities. They are widely used to transform liquids (Vitamin E, organic acids, flavours…) into free-flowing powders. Micropearl silica, developed by Rhodia, is a non-dusting formulation that provides cleaner handling and an improved health, safety and environmental profile.

Micropearl form, developed by Rhodia, provides non dusting formulation for better Health, Safety and Environment conditions.

Tixosil® anti-caking agents enable a better dosing for products like sugar. They are also used to enhance dispersion in soups, powdered milk, grated cheese, etc. Anti-caking agents prevent caking during freight and storage, which increases product shelf life.

Oral Care: abrasion and rheology:
When used in oral care applications, Tixosil® silicas allow superior polishing and cleaning performance. Tixosil® is compatible with all active ingredients and therapeutic agents, and can be used in transparent or coloured toothpaste gels. Tixosil Softclean™ is Rhodia’s latest innovation for the oral care market. This precipitated silica is less abrasive while maintaining its efficient cleaning power. Tixosil Softclean™ is particularly recommended for children’s toothpastes and toothpastes for sensitive gums.
