Consistent with a strong commitment to sustainability in cosmetics, Siltech will unveil the newest additions to our Sustain product series at the In-cosmetics Global trade event in Barcelona on March 28th
Silwax® Sustain 5116 is an improved sustainability liquid alkyl dimethicone that provides excellent spreadability, emollience and pleasing sensorial in personal care.
Silsurf® Sustain 5116 differs from traditional Cetyl Dimethicones as the alkyl component is derived from biobased plant sources, rather than petroleum feedstocks, assuring formulators of both functionality and improved sustainability. The product has a biobased carbon content in excess of 82%, as measured in accordance with ASTM D6866. The INCI is Cetyl Dimethicone.
Silube® Sustain 4316 is an improved sustainability alkyl functional silicone polyether emulsifier that provides premium benefits as a Water-In-Oil (invert) emulsifier. Silube® Sustain 4316 functions as a more sustainable version of the standard Silube® T308-16-CG. Relative to the standard, or “non-Sustain” version, the polyether and alkyl components of Silube® Sustain 4316 are derived from biobased plant sources, rather than petroleum-based feedstocks. The product has a biobased carbon content in excess of 73%, as measured in accordance with ASTM D6866. The INCI is Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone.
Siltech is additionally introducing Siltech® PTM, a specialty phenyl-modified liquid silicone that compatibilises cosmetic ingredients while eliciting spreadability, conditioning and improved sensorial in a variety of applications. The inherent high refractive index (1.46) provides excellent gloss in hair care and glow in colour cosmetics. The INCI is Phenyl Trimethicone.
