90TH Birthday of Ingeborg Gross

Ingeborg Gross would have turned 90 on December 12, 2021

She lost the fight against her serious illness at the age of 87, but thanks to her impressive life's work and her far-sighted succession planning, she secured an afterlife for future generations, which the Ingeborg Gross Foundation will preserve and implement. Ms. Ingeborg Gross was a strong entrepreneur.

She had no commercial training. But a feeling for business - and for people.

She has entrusted the foundation named after her and her long-term managing director with the preservation and implementation of her will. This laid the foundation stone for a secure future of the Schill + Seilacher Group, for the benefit of those who work for the company and for the common good. Just as she wanted it to be!


Doctoral scholarship from the Ingeborg-Gross-Foundation

Lea Zimmermann is writing her dissertation as part of a doctoral scholarship from the Ingeborg-Groß-Foundation:

The functionalization of textiles and the possibility of transforming a fabric or fiber into a new innovative product has always fascinated me and has accompanied me throughout my entire academic career. During my Bachelor's studies at University Niederrhein, I intensively explored the field of cosmetotextiles, investigating various functionalization methods for attaching microcapsules to and within the fiber. Recently, I successfully defended my Master's thesis at Technische Universität Dresden in the field of biofunctionalization of silk for implant medicine, with the long-term goal of immobilizing cells, growth factors, or macromolecules, and possibly even medications, to the material, within the Mechanical Engineering department. I deeply delved into the chemical functionalization of silk surfaces, successfully functionalizing silk fibers using carbodiimide chemistry. The knowledge I have gathered in this area during my studies will undoubtedly be very helpful for my intended Ph.D. at the German Institutes for Textile and Fiber Research (DITF).

The aim of my dissertation, within the framework of the Ingeborg-Groß-Stiftung doctoral scholarship, is to analyze the feasibility of self-cooling effects on textile surfaces and to investigate the interaction of thermodynamic parameters concerning passive radiative cooling. Special coatings will be developed that can lower the surface temperature compared to the surrounding air temperature. The relationships to be determined will serve to save energy for air conditioning in buildings with textile material facades, but also to inspire material innovations for leisure clothing, sportswear, and protective clothing. Considering the rising temperatures due to climate change and the associated challenges, the results of this research offer a solution for a sustainable cooling system that does not require external energy input.

When additives become functional, new possibilities emerge!

Advancements in tire technology are motivated by continually evolving market expectations. The need to contribute to vehicle efficiency, either by reduced fuel consumption in combustion engine vehicles or the switch to e-vehicle technologies with associated changes in tire performance criteria are often cited as key challenges facing tire developers.

Polymer producers have responded to the changing tire industry expectations, their innovations take into account a more reactive functionality within polymer architecture, and this is closely matched by increasingly greater degrees of filler surface chemistry. As a result, tire compound properties may now be tailored to meet quite specific tire performance targets.

Tire processing methods also underwent progressive stages of modernisation in recent years, for example, more sophisticated reactive mixing technology together with high-speed extrusion systems allowing for direct extrusion onto the building drum become established as cost effective production routes for many of the major producers.

These advancements however bring about their own conflicts, processing pathways involving multiple stages, often with the ability to rework compound or adjust rheological properties by additional time or energy input during the process are no longer viable options for most tire producers. It has thus become necessary to achieve processability through an increasingly narrow operating window.

The use of process additive chemicals in an attempt to overcome the processing limitations observed gives rise to further conflicts; Lubricant additives might improve compound surface appearance, however, green strength will probably further reduce due to the unwanted softening effect. The same is true for release additives where lower tack unfortunately remains at a higher value than the also lowered tensile strength of the compound.

The development team at Schill + Seilacher has recognised the need to decouple conflicting performance characteristics found within conventional process additive chemistries. As a result, innovation within our Struktol® range offers tire compounders opportunities to achieve processability without compromise.

An example of significant improvement in extrusion performance when using Struktol® HT 300 in a silica filled tread compound. This innovative Struktol additive acts to decouple the conflicting influences of green strength and viscosity. As a result, high performance compounds gain significant benefit.

Schill+Seilacher "Struktol" GmbH at RubberTech China 2020

RubberTech China 2020, the leading international rubber technology exhibition, was held at the Pudong Exhibition Centre, Shanghai, China, from September 16 to 18. This was the 20th edition of the popular event, which usually draws a diverse crowd of attendees and participants from across the world. However, the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting travel restrictions had a significant impact on international attendance, as well as on the scale of RubberTech China 2020.

Representatives from Schill+Seilacher "Struktol" GmbH , the German specialty chemicals major, took part in the event and noted that the 2020 edition of one of the global rubber industry’s most popular fairs was unlike any others that preceded it. 

About 500 companies attended the exhibition, spread over two and half exhibition halls, about 60% of the size of the usual size of exhibition during other years of the RubberTech China event, when about 800 companies participated in the exhibition, spread over four exhibition halls. About 40% of participants who had earlier booked, cancelled their plans to attend due to COVID-19 concerns. 

The team from SS China remarked that the number of visitors to the event seemed to not have decreased significantly, but strikingly, there were almost no foreigners at the show compared to other years. 

SS China participated at RubberTech China for all three days, with a booth that was “a bit more economically designed” than during prior years and pointed out that while their overseas competitors were not present, several of their competitors from China participated in the exhibition. 

Schill+Seilacher "Struktol" GmbH, Hamburg, was unable to send its experts from overseas to RubberTech China 2020, unlike during previous years, but Mr. Gino Liao and Mr. DH Lee from SS China, attended and ran the company’s booth, along with their sales staff, promoting Struktol products. They said that during the third day of the exhibition, local employees working for international companies such as Hutchinson, ContiTech, Continental, Hankook, Pirelli, Michelin, PTE, Kenda, Trelleborg, Hexpol, Kraiburg, GITI, Linglong Tire, Aeolus Tire, Sailun Tire and Doublestar Kumho visited the SS China booth to share updates on market trends and production information. 

Members of the company’s team celebrated SS China’s 15th anniversary at a special dinner at a restaurant in Waitan, by the invitation of Schill+Seilacher "Struktol" GmbH, Hamburg, where a celebratory letter from Mr. Guido Robbe was read and the celebration was shared online with Mr. Colin Clarke.

I-Chieh (Jens) Chen receives the Ingeborg Gross graduation studentship at Hamburg University, Faculty Chemistry

I-Chieh (Jens) Chen receives Ingeborg Gross Graduation Studentship at Hamburg University, Faculty of Chemistry

Already as grammar school pupil Mr Chen discovered his affinity to science and technology and started afterwards his chemistry studies at the faculty of chemistry at Hamburg University, which he recently terminated with his master’s degree. His master’s thesis applies to aspects of sustainable polymer chemistry in context with redox initialised radical polymerisation. He worked out definite processes for production of high polymers with interaction of theoretical, synthetic and technological chemical approaches. Even his bachelor’s thesis had its focus on macromolecular chemistry. These experiences will surely be of use for his graduation. The aim of this research project is the treatment of zinc catalysed sulphur of allylic hydro carbon bondings in polyolefines. The oxidation of sulphur is a well-known process and even assumes a role for vulcanisation, however, structure reactivity relations on the impact of catalysts is lacking. The aim is to research a sustainable implementation on the basis of high active catalysts.

The studentship amounts to monthly 1,600 € for a period of two years and will be extended to three years after a positive expertise of an interim report. The studentship is promoted by Ingeborg-Gross-Stiftung and „Freundes- and Freundes- und Förderverein Chemie der Universität Hamburg e.V.

Today, the board of Ingeborg Gross Foundation, the advisory board and the executive management visited our Pirna site.

Apprenticeship Schill+Seilacher

Every year Schill+Seilacher offers apprenticeships for different job profiles - apply now for apprenticeship start 2021!

For information about our apprenticeships and an insight into the everyday life of our trainees, follow us on Instagram:

Schill+Seilacher is the new main sponsor of the Dresden Monarchs

Schill+Seilacher group supports football players not only in the current situation

As part of their season kickoff, the Dresden Monarchs introduced their new helmet sponsor, Schill+Seilacher, today in Pirna. This addition expands the circle of supporters for American Football in Dresden, which already includes the Ostsächsische Sparkasse Dresden, ELBEPARK DRESDEN, and Adrian Glöckner Automobile GmbH, to include a fourth main sponsor.

For Schill+Seilacher, this is the first sports sponsorship in the company’s nearly 150-year history. “American football originated in the same decade as our company, so we've been considering a partnership for a while. Our recently deceased chairman of the advisory board and lawyer in Dresden, Uwe Wunderlich, recommended the team from his hometown to us,” says Dr. Rüdiger Ackermann, CEO of Schill+Seilacher GmbH. “With production facilities in Hamburg, Böblingen, and Pirna, we are well established throughout Germany. Additionally, we have two production sites in America, the home of football itself. It’s a young sport, fitting for us as we want to be perceived as a young company despite our long history.”

Dr. Uwe Dittrich, plant manager of Schill+Seilacher Chemie GmbH in Pirna, adds, “Like football, we come from an academic background; a large portion of our employees are academics. Each year, we have around ten trainees, all of whom have been retained in recent years. Similar to the Monarchs, we also focus on nurturing our own talent early on.”

Sören Glöckner, president of the Dresden Monarchs, is particularly pleased, having searched for a company to enter a long-term helmet sponsorship agreement for several years. “The Schill+Seilacher group has signed a contract with us for an initial term of five years, which is a significant gain for us as a club in the current situation,” says Glöckner, who is also happy that the team has been training again for the past few days.

Given the current circumstances, the club often questions whether the season will proceed. Ulz Däuber, head coach of the Dresden Monarchs e.V., assumes that the season will be played. “Currently, representatives from the first and second leagues are in discussions. The trend indicates that play will likely start in September in four groups of four teams each, to shorten the season. The German Bowl would then take place in mid-November,” reveals Däuber. And what’s the goal? “Clearly, we want to become German champions in 2020.”

Despite the excitement, there were some skeptical questions regarding the security of the sponsorship, which were addressed. “Sponsorship should operate on the basis of fairness and reliability, just like in sports. The club is counting on us for the entire five years! Additionally, we want to bask in the club's successes and celebrate the championship together,” concludes Dr. Ackermann

Disinfectant for our employees

At Schill+Seilacher corporate social responsibility starts with small details.

Today we make our employees a little bit of joy with an extraordinary campaign and give everyone a 3l canister of our disinfectant for private use. We wish the entire workforce to stay healthy and look forward to handing the next incentive in near future!

26,000 Respirator Masks for Böblingen

Schill+Seilacher handed over mask donation to corona delegate of Böblingen

Since at least, with the new obligation to wear masks in local traffic and shopping centers,  respirator masks recently became the most requested item with regard to health protection. While lots of citizens sew homemade masks for themselves, there is a high demand of professionally manufactured masks for health care.  In order to relieve this lack in doctor’s practices, hospitals and special care homes the Schill + Seilacher GmbH was in the position to acquire – thanks to good business contacts to China - a large contingent of respirator masks at their own expense. A few days ago Mirco Arndt, Factory Manager of the worldwide operating chemical enterprise handed over the donation of 26,000 masks to the Corona delegate of the economic development department Böblingen, Dominic Schaudt.

25,000 medical respirator masks as well as 1,000 professional FFP2 masks were transferred to the Böblingen fire department. The deputy press officer of Böblingen, Gianluca Biela reported, that the fire department is responsible for distribution to employees of municipal institutions, as for example social services as well as citizens’ center of the town hall, which should be prepared for reopening. „Furthermore, we can also provide the residential homes for elderly, if a lack of masks occurs and supply from established sources would not be sufficient.“

„While the government recently supports enterprises financially with billions of Euros, we consider it is our obligation to help where possible by means of our possibilities and contacts.“, sais Dr. Ruediger Ackermann, CEO of the Schill+Seilacher GmbH.

The treasured good was straightly flown in to Germany thief-proofby airfreight. Dr. Ackermann: „ We are glad that our medium-sized enterprise is able to help and hope that we will have lots of followers.”

The chemical enterprise Schill+Seilacher GmbH produces chemicals for production of technical textiles, leather and paper, fine chemicals and cosmetics as well as chemical fibers at the Böblingen factory with about 400 employees.

Schill+Seilacher Currently Produces Disinfectants

Since today the Böblingen chemical enterprise provides the district with disinfectants

Due to corona pandemic, the demand of disinfectants rapidly increases. Therefore, it was self-sufficient for the long-established chemical enterprise Schill+Seilacher GmbH, to comply with the request of a regional pharmacist to start production of disinfectants. Now the medium-sized company already produces disinfectants at two of its three factories in Germany. Besides the one in Böblingen also the Saxon Schill+Seilacher factory at Pirna started producing disinfectants.

„First we just started with small quantities for our company requirements and without automatic support.“ reported Mirco Arnd, factory manager of Schill+Seilacher GmbH, Böblingen. „Since today, however, we produce larger quantities at our mixing plant with official approval. Schill+Seilacher especially provides medical and social facilities at the Böblingen district.

They produce a disinfectant called „Desinfekt OFL“ in accordance with the formulation of World Health Organization (WHO). Additionally, thanks to the glycerine portion Desinfekt OFL is also skin-friendly. „We provide our customers with disinfectants at a fair price“, reported Arndt. „This is our small and regional contribution in fight against the pandemic. For production of Desinfekt OFL we postponed parts of our own production in order to accomplish capacities for it.

Schill + Seilacher preferably delivers Desinfekt OFL in 5 liter units to hospitals, special homes for elderly, fire departments, doctor’s practices as well as social facilities. „We will start with about 5 tons oft he disinfectant. As one of the required components for production is in short supply recently, we are only able to produce and provide a limited quantity. As soon as further supplies are guanranteed, we will increase production. We have already a lot of inquiries from all fields.“, said Mirco Arndt.

Schill+Seilacher "Struktol" is now member of the German Asia-Pacific Business Association

We look forward to a lively exchange of experiences and interesting discussions!

Schill + Seilacher "Struktol" has found its place as a member of the OAV. We can look forward to interesting discussions with companies that, like us, have been active in the East Asian market for a long time and have a lot of experience. Here is the link to the announcement of Schill + Seilacher "Struktol" as a new member:

Delegation journey

At the end of October, our managing director Dr. Ackermann joined the delegation group of Dr. Merkel to India.

At this journey, bilateral talks with various Indian industrial segments took place. The delegation’s journey was of high importance for Schill+Seilacher, because the Indian market is of great economic interest for our innovative company. At Chennai in India we already hold our own office and a subsidiary enterprise already is scheduled at Mumbai and Pune to satisfy this extremely important market and to provide best possible service.  

Schill+ Seilacher and Chimica Vemar

A creative partnership for quality, technology and flair.

Our aim: highest standard beautiful leather with low environmental impact.

Together, creating innovative solutions for our world.

New trainees get it on at Schill+Seilacher

On September 1, 2019, nine trainees started their 3 to 3.5 year vocational training at Schill + Seilacher GmbH in Böblingen. The new young chemists, chemical laboratory technicians, warehouse logistics specialists and an industrial clerk are motivated for the future and employed by qualified employees in companies.

The acquisition of new employees for the growth of the company and the dual training is a central point for the further development of the location.

Founded in 1877, the traditional company is a global player in the production of industrial process additives. We are leaders in innovation and individual solutions for our customers.

Today, Schill + Seilacher is successful with six independent production sites and around 1000 employees worldwide. And the Group is also well prepared for the future: we continue to rely on solid growth with traditional values ​​and targeted investments, a high degree of research and development activities, and orientation towards market and customer requirements.

The Böblingen plant produces special chemicals for the production and finishing of man-made fibers, textiles, leather and paper. Also additives for the cosmetics industry are manufactured here.

Schill + Seilacher is again looking for trainees (w / m / d) for the professions of chemist, chemist and industrial clerk in Böblingen for the start of training in September 2020.

Pirna puts new plant in operation

Schill + Seilacher Group has opened its new P1 plant in Pirna-Neundorf.

The construction of the multi-fuel plant became necessary as a result of a chemical accident and has state-of-the-art safety precautions to be able to rule out factory accidents in the future.

In December 2014, plant P1 exploded due to a chemical accident. One employee lost his life and four others were injured. A steel part with inscription today commemorates the disaster.

In order to be able to maintain the Pirna location and its jobs, the confidence of the residents and authorities was initially regained. Security was paramount when planning the reconstruction, with tens of millions invested in the implementation.

The innovative safety concept of the system sets new industry standards. It is suitable to prevent accidents and eruptions in general - including by means of a reinforced concrete protective cover, debris traps and automatically opening explosion flaps.

The operating concept developed especially for the chemical reactors provides for the waiver of certain substances in order to rule out dangerous reactions in the future. In addition, the reduced energy input no longer allows destructive explosive power.

The production site in Pirna, Saxony, was founded by Schill + Seilacher shortly after the reunification in 1990. The P1 multi-fuel plant is specialized in the production of additives for man-made fibers and cosmetics, colorants, flame retardant chemicals, leather impregnants, paper coatings and foam stabilizers. The planned annual production capacity of 10,500 tons corresponds to the volume of the previous plant.

NYSCC Suppliers’ Day is known as one of the most important events on the industry calendar in North America, expanding from year to year. For Schill+Seilacher Group, 2018th NYCCS was a perfect platform to introduce the latest products as well as the complete personal care portfolio to interested customers.

SCHILL+SEILACHER’s Amino-acid based Surfactant range showed beside new MB- and COSMOS-conform surfactants the RHEO2Green line, an innovative solution which gives easily a perfect viscosity and solves the thickening issues during production. STRUKTOL offered the relaunched Sil-O-San line including modified Silicones which lead to a smooth and soft skin feeling, as well as perfect look for the hair.

SNS Nanofiber Technologies presented NANOSANTM for different cosmetic and hygiene application (active delivery, decontamination, absorption), produced by a patented electrospinning process.


InCosmetics Global is the biggest and most important event for personal care ingredients and innovative technologies. For this reason, Amsterdam as a magnet pulled in April this year manufacturers of raw materials and finished products of personal care. This is the best opportunity to present and learn about new trends and innovations.

So, topic “green and natural” products, where Schill + Seilacher GmbH with its Perlastan surfactants is a one of the leading player on the market, year by year is gaining strength. This strong position of our cosmetic division have been reinforced last year through development of self-thickening Cosmos-certified Rheo2Green series and Mass Balance (RSPO) products.

Most attention received Polyfix (odour absorbers) and Sil-O-San (organo-modified silicones) lines that the number of interested customers could be dramatically increased.

Examples for advanced technological customer products based on nonwoven nanofibers Nanosan did impress the visitors of our booth.


Schill + Seilacher was very successful at this year's All Pacific Leather Fair in Hong Kong. Our stand, located within the German Participation was very busy.

As every year, Schill and Seilacher was represented at SINCE in Shanghai. SINCE is the largest nonwoven exhibition in Asia. With 461 exhibitors and 22,218 visitors from 62 countries (China, Korea, Japan, India, Singapore, England, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Turkey, Brazil, etc.), there was an increase of 35% compared to the previous year.

The successful markets for hygiene, medical articles and filtration in Asia are leading to an increasing demand for nonwoven products and technologies. We were able to present our new developments for nonwovens in the hygiene sector to numerous customers and interested parties.

With our newly developed spin finishes for bico staple fibers, we were able to successfully meet the new trend in Asia for excellent softness and dry skin feel for permanently hydrophilic fibers for diapers and feminine hygiene products.

Our long-term experience in the field of spin finish for nonwovens and our global presence were particularly appreciated during our discussions.


As a co-exhibitor, SNS Nanofiber Technologies from the USA presented the NANOSAN® range for decontamination of the skin. In vivo studies demonstrated that the the special nonwovens produced by electrospinning can remove sunscreens and even nanoparticles from the skin, much more effective compared to conventional washing. This product innovation was honored with the 2nd SEPAWA Innovation Award.

Struktol, also a member of the Schill + Seilacher Group, completed the successful presentation with modified silicones for skin and hair applications. These specialties are available in many variations and can also be produced according to customer requirements.


For the first time in 2017, Berlin hosted this year's SEPAWA. All in all, it was again a successful event with much more visitors compared to the previous year. This year, the Schill + Seilacher booth presented itself according to the motto "Some like it hot" to an international audience. Highlights were the mass-balance sarcosinates and the COSMOS-conform glutamate surfactants, especially the newly introduced PERLASTAN Rheo2Green1. With the new Rheo2Green1, a stable viscosity is obtained only by adjusting the pH without any additional rheological additive. The newly developed POLYFIX ZRC 50 TB, a higher concentrated odor absorber within our range of odor absorbers, can be used for personal care, home care and also for technical applications.


With 1,789 exhibitors and over 47,500 visitors from a total of 114 countries, a record attendance record was repeatedly broken at the Frankfurt Exhibition Center from 9 to 12 May. The industry met at Techtextil and Texprocess to gain information about the most innovative products in the field of technical textiles and the latest processing technologies.

Schill + Seilacher also presented itself to prospective and existing customers to introduce their current range of nonwovens, technical textiles, fiber preparations and chemicals for chemical fibers.


In April 2017, Schill + Seilacher GmbH Böblingen successfully completed the certification according to the RSPO (Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil) Mass Balance (MB) standard. Due to this consistent step, we will have a share in supporting the global policy for sustainable palm cultivation that will lead protection of environment, domestic community and resources.

Schill + Seilacher strives to ensure that the employees, suppliers and market partners act according to ecological and social aspects in a sustainable and responsible manner. As a matter of course, we plan a growing proportion from certified source for palm oil and palm kernel oil based raw materials in future. We are pleased to send you information about our raw materials which are available in MB quality. We look forward to receiving your inquiries!


This event, important predominantly for the cosmetic and household industries in USA, is held every year and a key event and meeting place for initializing business contacts. The Suppliers Day 2017, organized by the New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists, took place for the first time in the Javits Convention Center in New York. The decision for a relocation from New Jersey to New York was required due to the high demand for participation.

Also this year, Schill + Seilacher –represented by our partners ROSS Organics, Walsh Associates and Quadra Chemicals – introduced innovative solutions for cosmetic and home care application. New formula guides will help the R&D staff to develop products to meet the customer’s needs.

With our new PERLASTAN Rheo2Green1, based on our Glutamate technology, we presented a ready-to-go solution for thickening easily rinse-off products: Just add your desired ingredients to the product, adjust the pH with organic acids – and you will experience the remarkable increase of viscosity starting immediately. This enables the development of mild and “green” cleaning products with outstanding skin feeling and excellent rheological properties.

Once malodors occur, Polyfic ZRC 50 TB concentrate will work effectively and binds a broad sprectrum of odor-forming nucleophilic molecules. Even when heating, the binding process is not reversible and therefore the malodor will not occur again. Based on Zinc Ricinoleate, Polyfic ZRC 50 TB is used at a level of 1-5% not only in deodorants (roll on, sprays and sticks), lotions or creams, hand sanitizers or products for hair depilatory creams and permanent hair waves, but also for use in household, sanitary, pet care, industrial cleaning or car care.

The fiber concept from Schill+Seilacher’s sister company SNS Nano Fiber Technology, LCC (Hudson, Ohio) attracts the visitor’s attention. This innovative carrier system could be used for masks, eye pads or cleaning wipes and is produced by a highly sophisticated non-woven technology.

Also in 2018, we will participate – and are looking forward to meeting you at our booth!


Every 3 years, the hygiene and nonwovens industry meets in Geneva for the Index. As always, Schill + Seilacher was represented at the largest European trade fair in this sector with a trade fair stand. Our new developments for nonwovens in the hygiene sector could be presented to numerous customers and interested parties.

With our newly developed spin finishes for spunbond and carded nonwovens we could offer solutions for the current trend for top sheets with excellent softness for feminine hygiene products and diapers. Spin finishes for the production of permanently hydrophilic fibers and nonwovens for diapers with dry skin feeling were particularly in demand. Our long-term experience in the field of spin finish for nonwovens and our global presence were particularly appreciated during our discussions.


Schill + Seilacher continues with his extraordinary successful future – this seemed to be the slogan during the show in 2017 that took place in London ExCel Hall. In fact, the company launched two innovative raw materials, which were introduced to the numerous visitors at the booth: PERLASTAN Rheo2Green1, a self-thickening system based on Glutamate technology and Polyfix ZRC 50 TB, our new and effective binder of odor-forming nucleophilic molecules. Beside this, Schill + Seilacher presented the Glutamin- and Sarcosine-based surfactants, suitable for cosmetic, pharmaceutical, home care and industrial applications. Additionally, Schill+Seilacher finished successfully the RSPO approval and will now be able to offer MB-solutions for customer’s projects.

Our sister company SNS Nano Fiber Technology, LCC (Hudson, Ohio) showed with their innovative fiber concept extraordinary solutions for carrier systems like masks, eye pads or wipes with different properties. The concept is based on a unique non-woven technology which allows functional or active ingredients being incorporated easily. Beside this, other fiber constructs could be used for effective skin and surface cleaning. The silicone additives, suitable for skin and hair, completed the portfolio we presented to interested visitors. To sum up: Like every year, the InCosmetics is an obligatory event to work on the cosmetics of the future.
