Silicone Emulsifiers and Formulation Techniques for Stable, Aesthetic Products

Mastering formulating techniques with water-in-silicone emulsifiers can help cosmetic chemists create stable emulsions that combine distinctive aesthetics with improved performance. Here, the authors describe how altering parameters including the water to silicone/oil ratio, mixing processes, emulsifier levels, the nature of the external and internal phases, and the presence or lack of co-emulsifiers affect the characteristics of final formulations.

Polyhedral Ogigomericsilsequioxanes: Additives for Unique Cosmetic Properties

Cosmetics formulators continually search for new raw materials to achieve elevated performance and to distinguish their products in the marketplace. Polyhedral oligomericsilsequioxanes (POSS) can provide an array of unique hybrid inorganic-organic ingredients that span the property spectrum in terms of chemistry, physical form and solubility.

A New Formulators' Tool for Customizing Sensory

Optimizing the sensory properties of o/w emulsion systems is an ongoing challenge for formulators, thus tools to simplify this process are desirable. Here, the authors describe a visual tool to assist in selecting the right combination of certain crosslinked acrylic rheology modifiers and specialty emollient esters to meet target aesthetics.

Enhancing the Feel of Vegetable Oils with Silicone

Adding silicone to natural oils can reduce surface tension thus improving spreading characteristics. This results in finished formulations with improved sensory profiles and in addition, expands on the opportunities for using these natural ingredients.
