Amorphous Precipitated Silicate is an expanded silica product designed to absorb twice its weight or more in liquids and works with both oils and water-based ingredients. This has many applications but primarily is used to add liquid ingredients to just add water clay masks. Other uses for Amorphous Silicates include as an abrasive in scrubs, an absorbent powder, an anticaking agent, bulking agent, opacifying agent, and suspending agent. It is most commonly used as an absorbent because of its ability to absorb excess moisture and oil from the surface of the skin. Of note, some people find that silica can absorb too much moisture and/or oil, leaving skin feeling dry so use caution with how much is used in this application because a little goes a long way.

Silica is commonly used in cosmetic formulations because its spherical particles not only absorb sweat and oil but prevent light reflection and improve spreadability. Silica is also used as an ingredient in powder perfume because the porous spheres enable this ingredient to deliver fragrance over a long period of time. Silica is a gentle abrasive that is often used in exfoliating skin care products, such as body and face scrubs.
