  • Article

Umang Pharmatech Pvt., Ltd has launched small beads for cosmetic applications. Sprayspheres can be customized to give finished products specific attributes. The company's hard beads can be made with a variety of colors and ingredients, meanwhile its soft beads are based on natural ingredients such as cellulose and lactose.The beads can be filled with cosmetic ingredients and add an esthetic visual to a product formulation.

The spheres can be added to gels, lotions, creams, toothpastes, face washes, as fragrance beads in a detergent bar or to encapsulate fragrances. The beads are originally hard and solid but become soft within hours in a cosmetic formulation. They spread easily on skin due to their softness. According to the company, the spheres provide a smooth feeling on skin leaving no residue.

The beads are offered from 0.3–3.0 mm. Main ingredients inside the beads can include vitamins such as retinyl palmitate or tocopheryl acetate, oils such as lavender butter or tea tree oil, plant extracts such as Emblica officinalis or Boswellia serrata, actives such as glycolic acid or lycopene, fragrance such as gardenia or jasmine, and flavors such as guava or papaya.
