• Is your skin care free from heavy metals? Our chelation process.

    Chelating agents are used in cosmetic formulations to bind metals and to help them pass through the body. Africology uses Sodium Phytate, which is a white, odour-free powder that is easily/readily water soluble. It is used as a chelate/cheating agent to boost the antimicrobial activity of preservatives, improve the efficacy of antioxidants, and stabilize products against the effects of metal contamination.

    We use it as metals can enter a cosmetic formulation from production equipment, as well as unavoidable impurities from ingredients (e.g. extracts, pigments) and from processing water. 

    Our chelation is used in combination with typical antioxidants (tocopherol, ascobyl palmitate) to ensure that metals do not oxidise in the body.
