Industrial minerals are natural minerals – a gift from time.

Mining these minerals responsibly and sustainably is essential to harnessing the benefits these minerals offer, minerals which are a vital part of our everyday personal health and hygiene program.

Speciality minerals such as:

  • Bentonite – softening towels for the final caring touch.
  • Borates – producing cleaning properties in soap.
  • Calcium Carbonate – brightening teeth.
  • Diatomite – filtering drinking water to remove microbial and arsenic.
  • Feldspar – whitening ceramic tiles.
  • Kaolin – smoothing surfaces of sinks and baths.
  • Lime – purifying drinking water.
  • Plastic Clays – forming sanitaryware.
  • Silica – providing glass for bathroom mirrors.
  • Talc – improving silkiness and sheen in cosmetics.

So when you’re looking good and feeling great, you will appreciate why we at the Industrial Minerals Association (IMA-Europe) are actively promoting these essential minerals which enhance our quality of life.
