Who doesn't like to keep things where we want them and not let gravity win!? A super fine water repellent, silica reduces caking and clumping, 'suspending' ingredients within the formula. It also helps our deodorant sticks perform better with its excellent moisture absorption and assists with the dry/matte glide on application. It will stay on the surface of the skin and will not penetrate the skin.
Is Silica Safe?
There are concerns around some types of silica as a potential carcinogenic, but that is not the type of silica that we use here at Woohoo HQ 😊.
- Non-crystalline (amorphous) - found in plants - this is the kind we use
- Crystalline forms (quartz) - found in rocks or as grains of sand - this is the kind to avoid
