Aluminum Oxide

Aluminium oxide is an amphoteric oxide with the chemical formula Al2O3. It is commonly referred to as alumina (α-alumina), aloxide, or corundum in its crystalline form, as well as many other names, reflecting its widespread occurrence in nature and industry.

Aluminium oxide flakes are base material for effect pigments. These pigments are widely used for decorative applications e.g. in the automotive or cosmetic industry.

Aluminium oxide is used for its hardness and strength. It is widely used as an abrasive, including as a much less expensive substitute for industrial diamond. Many types of sandpaper use aluminium oxide crystals. In addition, its low heat retention and low specific heat make it widely used in grinding operations

These are the same crystals that are used in professional microderm abrasion treatments.

Cosmetic Uses: Aluminum oxide is used as an abrasive, a thickening agent, and an absorbent in cosmetics.
