Title: Tailoring Surface Properties
  • Article

During the NY SCC Suppliers' Day. Gelest will showcase its ability synthesize specialty silanes and silicones and employ these materials as reactive surface treatments to tailor the properties of surfaces. This surface chemistry has demonstrated exceptional performance in color cosmetics and skin care applications. For example, one of its four surface treatments, Gelest ML (maximum loading), can be used in pigments for the formulation of powder/cream concealers.

According to the company, tailoring the surface chemistry of pigments and powders provides robust, permanently modified behavior, expanding formulation latitude in personal care. Benefits include stability throughout the range of physiological pHs, precise surface energy control, water repellency, and stable interactions with siloxane, organic and aqueous phases, among other benefits. Visit the company at booth 700A for more information.
