Siltech has revealed Silmer Sustain-H (INCI: C13-15 Alkane (and) Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer), a silicone elastomer gel diluted in a sustainable bio-based hemisqualane carrier.
According to Siltech, Silmer Sustain-H not only exhibits performance benefits that are typically from silicone elastomer gels, but now with the added feature of improved sustainability. The product is designed to provide cushion, moisturization and a silky-smooth sensorial feel in skin and sun care products.
Additionally, it provides uniform color and powder dispersion in makeup. And it reportedly exhibits a slightly longer time on skin than traditional elastomer gels offered in carriers such as cyclopentasiloxane or isododecane.
