ImerCare 400D

ImerCare® 400D A natural diatomaceous earth for deodorants and antiperspirants

  • High absorbency
  • Body odor control
  • Nude skin sensation

ImerCare® 400D is the most water- and oil-absorbent diatomaceous earth product available on the market today making it highly effective absorption agent in deodorants and antiperspirants.

This exceptional absorbency power is due to the exceedingly high surface area of the mineral particles, a result of the unique morphology of the Imerys deposit from which this specific diatomaceous earth product is mined.

In tests, micro-porous ImerCare® 400D:

  • Demonstrates high perspiration absorbency
  • Controls body odor
  • Dries quickly leaving a nude skin sensation
  • Gives a pleasant soft touch feel
