Welcome to Imerys Performance Minerals

Skin care

Skin care ImerCare® full range of 100% natural mineral solutions for scrubs, creams and facemasks

ImerCare® is a full range of 100% natural mineral solutions for body and facial scrubs, cleansers, alphabet, face and body creams, facemasks and sun creams.

Body and face scrubs

ImerCare® P-Scrub is a perlite-based portfolio developed using patented engineered technology which combines the natural hardness and absorption power of volcanic rock with the softness of spherical particles to provide a gentle, physical exfoliation effect.

ImerCare® P-Scrub is an ideal natural alternative to oil-derived beads used in body and face scrubs and cleansers.

We recommend: 

  • ImerCare® 120P-Scrub, ImerCare® 190P-Scrub and ImerCare® 270P-Scrub for face scrubs and cleansers
  • NEW ImerCare® 700P-Scrub designed to provide the best compromise between scrub intensity and sensorial properties in body scrubs.

ImerCare® P-Scrub can also be used in conjunction with ImerScrub, a range of colored perlites which provide a refined, aesthetic effect in scrub products.

Face creams and moisturizers

ImerCare® kaolin and diatomaceous earth ranges confer excellent sebum and absorption properties in moisturizers, daycreams, BB creams, CC creams, anti-acne creams and creams for oily skins.

We recommend:

  • ImerCare® Matte for an enhanced, natural matte effect in matte daycreams
  • ImerCare® 266D and ImerCare® 18D for oily skin and anti-acne creams
  • ImerCare® 04K for rheology control

ImerCare® 4T talc confers a creamy, smooth feel to face creams. It is ideal for creating a soft, pampering sensation and pleasant powdery texture. 


ImerCare® engineered kaolin and diatomite products are excellent natural solutions for facemasks requiring superior sebum and impurities absorption

We recommend:

  • ImerCare® 2K and 04K 
  • ImerCare® 18D and 400D 



All Imerys cosmetic products are natural, high quality, chemically inert and offer good skin tolerance. They are not treated with chemicals during processing. These attributes enable them to be used in cosmetic products that comply with cosmetic directive regulation (EC) n° 1223/2009.
