Bioactive Glass

Also known as calcium sodium phosphosilicate, bioactive glass has demonstrated extraordinary biocompatibility in medical applications such as bone repair for decades. Today it is used as a finely ground powder in cosmetic and cosmeceutical products with a broad range of benefits.

Health and vitality for skin

As a bioactive ingredient in make-up, skin or sun care, deodorants, and permanent make-up colors, calcium sodium phosphosilicate exhibits skin-soothing and anti-odor properties and reduces the visibility of wrinkles. In contact with water, bioactive glasses release minerals such as calcium, which can bind to and strengthen nails.

High quality, exceptional purity

Glasses used in cosmetic applications must meet high purity requirements and achieve very small grain sizes. To fulfill this, SCHOTT Vitryxx® Bioactive Glass is manufactured using dedicated glass melting tanks and specialist grinding facilities. SCHOTT's expertise in glass production is based on a 130-year history as a world leader in specialty glass.
