Upsalite®, a mesoporous magnesium carbonate

A unique material for the ingredient-savvy consumer

Disruptive Materials is currently commercializing Upsalite®, a mesoporous magnesium carbonate, into the beauty industry through color cosmetic applications. The material speaks to the ingredient-savvy consumers that want to learn more about their products, demand performance and safe ingredients. We have been working with brands to provide a factor of differentiation and an element of that connects the science behind the product to the end consumer.

Upsalite Background

Upsalite is a novel, patented ingredient that arose from pharmaceutical research at Uppsala University. Back in 2012, Professor Maria Strømme and her colleagues serendipitously invented a material that was previously said to be impossible, as researchers had tried for over 100 years –  the first and only mesoporous magnesium carbonate: Upsalite.
