Tokyo -- Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd. has developed a new generation of highly functional hybrid silicone powders,KSP-441and KSP-411, which possess superior flexibility and lubricity. The products are aimed at the cosmetics industry.
Shjin-Etsu said these products were specifically designed to exhibit high absorption of various oils. Adding these new silicone powders to the formulations of a wide variety of cosmetic products results in a uniquely soft and silky feel to the skin, and at the same time, these powders also can be expected to prevent cosmetics from smearing because they have a highly functional sebum absorption quality that minimises oily skin.
Shin-Etsu's newly developed unique hybrid silicone powders consist of a spherical silicone rubber core whose surface is coated with silicone resin. They have both the flexibility of silicone rubber and the lubricity of silicone resin, and have superior dispersion quality for cosmetic-product applications.
