Available as a fine white powder, SCHOTT Vitryxx® is composed of four oxides essential for the human body: silicon oxide, sodium oxide, calcium oxide and phosphor oxide. This makes it highly biocompatible and skin-friendly.

Vitryxx® effectively delivers the traditional glass benefits of high resistance to temperature and UV radiation, and is also odorless and tasteless.

Vitryxx®M G018-270 Bioactive Glass

SCHOTT Vitryxx®M is a combination of SCHOTT Vitryxx® Bioactive Glass and Mica, a group of phyllosilicates that offer a number of reflective and refractive properties for cosmetic products.
