This editor's pick features a high molecular weight polymer in a quick-dry carrier from Dow Personal Care: Dowsil 3903 Liquid Satin Blend (INCI: Isododecane (and) Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer).

As the name suggests, the ingredient is designed to impart a satin-like feel in formulas such as the following men's care moisturizer. It reportedly functions in clear systems, is cold-processable and China-compliant, and provides novel rheology and texture characteristics.
