Wherever we go and whatever we do, minerals are an important part of our lives. When it comes to minerals in our daily diet, calcium is well known for its role in building and maintaining strong bones and teeth. It also plays a role in blood clotting, nerve conduction, muscle contraction and as a buffer substance. With this in mind, Omya's calcium carbonate is used in food products as well as in pharmaceutical formulations – predominantly to provide highly bioavailable elemental calcium, but also as a multifunctional additive.
The demand for suitable additives can also be seen when looking at today's personal care products – calcium carbonate offers significant advantages when used in toothpaste, lip balm, skin care products and many more.
