Disruptive Materials is now on Knowde

Disruptive Materials opens a storefront on Knowde

SAN JOSE, CA – JANUARY 10, 2024 – Novel ingredients developer Disruptive Materials has launched a storefront on Knowde for its unique Upsalite® mesoporous magnesium carbonate. 

Formulators, cosmetic scientists, research and development (R&D) professionals, and procurement teams in the personal care and cosmetics industries can now source this patented and groundbreaking material from Disruptive Materials on the leading digital customer experience platform for ingredients, polymers, and chemicals. 

“As a company born in science and innovation, we welcome opportunities to collaborate with innovators who can apply their formulation expertise to our technology to further advance breakthroughs in cosmetics and personal care products. Our Knowde storefront not only opens the door to thousands of potential customers, it also enables us to collaborate effectively with them online,” said Mary Sundborg, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Disruptive Materials.

Upsalite® mesoporous magnesium carbonate is a multifunctional ingredient with a narrow pore size distribution and high surface area that enables superior absorption of lipophilic and hydrophilic substances (sebum and sweat) simultaneously. This porous structure gives Upsalite® greater absorption and skin adhesion and increased ability to scatter light. 

Disruptive Materials’ Knowde storefront makes it easy for formulators, cosmetic scientists, R&D professionals, and procurement teams to search for Upsalite®, request documents, order samples, and access experts who can answer technical questions. 

“The R&D community is under tremendous pressure to innovate quickly and get products to market faster. When researchers and formulators have questions, they want to know, ‘How can I talk to someone to get the answers I need?’ This is especially a concern to the smaller and newer companies that are increasingly at the heart of innovation,” said Dan Haas, Chief Commercial Officer for Knowde. “Knowde enables greater connectivity and engagement between companies in the cosmetics and personal care industry and suppliers like Disruptive Materials.” 

Knowde currently has 900 suppliers and 28,000 ingredients for the cosmetics and personal care industries.
