Silica is used in food and beverage applications as a free-flow and anti-caking agent in powdered foods, seasonings and flavorings. In pharmaceuticals and personal care, as well as cosmetics, silica aides in the powderization of liquid drugs, provides viscosity control and offers free-flow improvements by acting as an anti-caking agent. Other benefits in personal care include oil and sweat absorption, color stabilization, moisture resistance, silky feel, and carrying active ingredients.
