The easy-to-use, anhydrous formulations range from SPF 30-50 and provide a reportedly fresh feeling, dry after feel and leave behind minimal whitening. They are FDA-approved and include reef-friendly ingredients. They include:

  • A glow-boosting oil stick for the face and body, containing KF-56A (INCI: Diphenysiloxy Phenyl Trimethicone)
  • A stick formulation, containing KSG-18 Phenyl Modified Elastomer Gel (INCI: Diphenylsiloxy Phenyl Trimethicone (and) Dimethicone/Phenyl Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer)
  • An elastomer gel emulsion stick, containing KSG-320 (INCI: Isododecane (and) PEG-15/Lauryl Dimethicone Crosspolymer); and
  • A cooling and moisturizing emulsion sunscreen stick that uses of the properties of KSG-320, containing KF-6038 (INCI: Lauryl PEG-9 Polydimethylsiloxyethyl Dimethicone)

The formulations and a corresponding poster, "Silicone Tools: Stick Sunscreen Formulations," will be presented at the Florida Chapter of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists 2019 Sunscreen Symposium, to be held Sept. 12-14, 2019.

"We recognize the importance of innovating solutions for cosmetics consumers seeking on-the-go sunscreen options with progressive sensory effects. This event presents an ideal time and platform to showcase these new formulations in a convenient, consumer-friendly format that's about the size of a travel deodorant stick," commented Janine Cherette, team leader, Cosmetics Application Laboratory, Shin-Etsu Silicones of America.
