Collaboration on New Microfine Titanium dioxide


BASF Aktiengesellschaft, Germany has agreed to collaborate with Sakai Chemical Industry Company, Japan on new microfine titanium dioxide grades. According to the agreement BASF, the world leading company in UV filters for cosmetic applications, is expanding its UV filter product portfolio to include a range of new inorganic titanium dioxide grades manufactured by Sakai. These innovative products will be marketed under the tradename T-Lite™ by BASF. Under the new agreement Sakai will be producing microfine titanium dioxide for BASF, who will exclusively market these products globally with the exception of Japan.

“Sakai’s capabilities in advanced nanotechnology and powder modification enables BASF to offer high performing TiO2 grades to the cosmetics industry. This will help our customers to generate sophisticated and elegant cosmetic formulations with high sun protection factors (SPFs)“, says Dr. Thomas Saupe, Director Cosmetic Solutions at BASF. Besides others, the advantages of the T-Lite™ grades are characterized by high performance and improved transparency as well as ease of use in formulations.

With its organic and inorganic UV-A and UV-B filters, BASF has a complete product range that permits the creation of just about any desired formulation of sunscreen agents for a wide array of applications: sun lotions, moisturizers or highly effective sunblocks, especially for children. The business with UV filters is handled by BASF’s Fine Chemicals Division, which is active in the fields of health, nutrition and body care. This division manufactures and markets a wide product line for the cosmetics industry, especially for hair & skin care, ranging from conditioners, styling polymers, solubilizers and emulsifiers to dyes, UV filters and active ingredients.
