Gilca has been producing a diverse range of cosmetics sponge applicators for over 20 years.

From "OEM's” such as Procter and Gamble to large UK and US retailers Gilca has provided the market solution to the most demanding of customers.

The new and innovation AleXon sponge range offers excellent value across the cosmetic sector. AleXon high density (HD) is a unique material that is a true alternative to NBR sponges.

AleXon (HD) is the only alternative in over 30 years that works and ticks all the boxes. AleXon is also produced in low density but offers the same consumer benefits at a very economical price. AleXon is now used in the supply of most of the fixed-price stores in UK as well as many major wholesalers.
