Evonik appoints Azelis as distributor in the Nordic countries

German chemicals manufacturer company Evonik has appointed speciality chemicals distributor Azelis for raw materials AEROSIL®and SIPERNAT®, which are used in a range of personal care products.

Azelis will distribute AEROSIL® and SIPERNAT® to the personal care, pharma and food industries in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Iceland.

AEROSIL® is a gel-former used to increase the viscosity of oils, waxes and emulsions, thus improving the structure and stability of creams, lotions, lipsticks and makeup. SIPERNAT® is a silica that combines a high absorption capacity together with a good flowability.

Both AEROSIL® and SIPERNAT® are effective flow aids, beneficial in the production and application of powders and hair care products. 

AEROSIL® fumed silica also facilitates the processing of pigments and prevents sedimentation of solid components from suspensions.  

Andrew Johnson, Managing Director, Azelis Nordic, said, “The Evonik silica product range offers our customers further opportunities in our approach to functional and innovative ingredients. We regularly invite customers into our laboratories and will be pleased to work with them on projects around these new materials in our portfolio.”

The agreement complements existing distribution partnerships between the two companies across many industries in Europe and Asia.
