Jeen International has been awarded a U.S. patent covering its Jeesilc PS Series of silicone copolymers. The granted patent and corresponding foreign applications (which the company is pursuing in Europe, Asia and the Americas) cover the use of this unique technology in a wide range of cosmetic, personal care and dermatologic products.
Jeesilc PS Series technology is based on the novel Bis vinyl dimethicone/ dimethicone copolymer, a non-crosslinked, non-alkyl containing linear silicone polymer designed to enhance the texture, spread properties, gloss and film integrity of personal care/cosmetic formulations. Consisting of a full line of silicone gels and liquids, the Jeesilc PS Series features a wide range of viscosities and carriers to bring these aesthetic benefits to formulators worldwide. Additionally, extensive patent coverage allows freedom to formulate outside many of the complexities found within the silicone cross-linked chemistries. Extensions to the Jeesilc PS Series are already under development to provide further benefits to using this novel technology, according to Jeen.
