Momentive Debuts Multifunctional Silicone Blends
Posted: May 21, 2013
At Suppliers' Day, Momentive Performance Materials debuted two new silicone blends that offer multifunctionality to personal care formulators.
Silsoft E-Pearl PF emulsion (INCI: Polymethylsilsesqioxane (and) Dimethicone (and) Isohexadecane (and) Cetearyl Methicone (and) PEG-40 Stearate (and) Steareth-2 (and) Steareth-21) provides a desirable sensory experience with moist feel, line blurring and skin brightening effects.
The product adds a soft, smooth, silky feel to products and has good lubricity and spreadability. It uses light diffusion effects to blur fine lines and wrinkles. It has non-ionic properties and is moisturizing.
The emulsion is easy to use and can be added to a formula with simple shaking. It is cold processable and can be post-added to many existing formulations. It can add sensory attributes to skin care products with high water content, event when the product contains more than 90% water. The product is recommended at 2-5% in facial products (masks, toners and moisturizers), sun care products (sunscreens and daily wear SPF products), color cosmetics (BB creams, CC creams, foundations and concealers) and o/w emulsions (creams, lotions and protective products).
Velvesil Mul-T gel (INCI: Caprylyl Methicone (and) Boron Nitride (and) C30-45 Alkyl Cetearyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer) is a starting point to consider for a large variety of multi-claim formulations. Due to its silicone composition, it can deliver a luxurious feel, enhance natural coverage, and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
