Cosmetics
"These products contain Boron Nitride, a raw ingredient used in the ceramic industry. The Boron Nitride used in our products is of cosmetic grade, meaning that the impurities have been removed by the manufacturer for cosmetic use. We use the ingredient because of its unequaled slip and positive effect on application to the skin."

Boron nitride powder is composed of flat, hexagonal, plate-like crystals that can freely slide over one another, which gives the powder a lubricious, silky texture.
