Silicone Elastomere


Product description

Elastomers in combination with various carriers, also available in D5-free varieties. Outstanding skin-feel, very silky and elegant. Sebum-absorbing properties contribute to mattifying effects. Can also be used as a thickener. The hydrophilic suspension Dowsil™ 9509 is also suitable for hydrogels and light O/W emulsions. Dowsil™ EL 8050 / 8051 / 8052 with improved compatibility are also suitable for transparent systems (sun screens). A new addition to this line is the Dowsil™ EL-9048 with low D4 content. Dowsil™ EL-9241 with low D4 content as alternative for Dow Corning ® 9041.

The recently launched Dowsil™ EL-7040 completes the elastomer range and allows to incorporate large amounts of water and glycol due to its hydrophilic character. It also provides a refreshing sensation on the skin.
