Innovative Product Highlights

Omya in food, pharma and cosmetics

The newest development coming out of R&D is the Pharma product line – an exciting new family of food and pharmaceutical-grade particles. These have been developed to play an outstanding role as a truly multifunctional excipient in pharmacology, as a carrier for controlled release in food and cosmetic applications and as an adjuvant in immunology, among other applications.


The development of porous particles with excellent adsorption and absorption properties is leading to developments with great benefits for waste water treatment. This enables the omission of polayacrylamides and derivatives as well as the replacement of aluminum compounds.​
