Since 1963, Mineral Im.Es.Co. has been importing top quality talcs from the People’s Republic of China for its production of pure and exceptionally pure talcs. Our company has the exclusive licence in Italy for products from the northern Province of Liaoning/Haichen, guaranteeing the highest levels of safety and reliability.
With offices in Affi, in the Province of Verona, Mineral Im.Es.Co. is a leader in the production of pure talc for the cosmetics and the pharmaceutical industries. Our company offers talcs of the highest purity and whiteness levels with controlled bacteria levels and reduced iron content. The talcs are used as the basis for powders such as lubricants for pills and carriers for disinfectant, astringent, anti-itching and cooling products. In the cosmetics areas, pure talcs are used as a base for face powders, rouges, eye shadows and foundation creams (compact or in mineral powder) as well as in the preparation of talcum powder.
In the foodstuff sector, pure talcs are widely used in applications as carriers in food colourings and separating agents in freeze-dried products, condiments, cheeses, rice and table salt. In fact, the hydrophobic particles allow to protect the foods and impede agglutination. Furthermore, the talcs are used for producing olive oil as they facilitate the separation of the solid matter in the oil which comes from the grinding process.
