Next-generation rheology control from Dow Corning brings new formulating options for personal care

Dow Corning - EEI : 20 April, 2007  (New Product)
Personal care chemists looking to create highly differentiated formulations to gain a competitive edge are increasingly turning to novel rheology effects as a critical component of innovation. Silica silylate aerogels are a new class of hydrophobic silica particles that act as rheology modifiers while offering additional formulation benefits to skin care, sun care, color cosmetics, fragrance and underarm products.
Personal care chemists looking to create highly differentiated formulations to gain a competitive edge are increasingly turning to novel rheology effects as a critical component of innovation. Silica silylate aerogels are a new class of hydrophobic silica particles that act as rheology modifiers while offering additional formulation benefits to skin care, sun care, color cosmetics, fragrance and underarm products. The aerogels can be a useful component of new product design, allowing stable thickening, broader use of active ingredients and fragrances with greater stability and longevity. They also allow cold processing for faster development, easier manufacturing and cost efficiency. Among their basic properties, they are efficient oil-phase thickeners at concentrations of 1 to 15% and can absorb sebum at levels as low as 0.5 to 1.5%, in both cases providing improved performance at lower concentrations than traditional hydrophobically modified materials.
