Two New Ingredients at Gelest

November 30, -0001

Gelest has rolled out two new cosmetic ingredients, SD Surface Modification (proposed INCI: hydroxy, methyl silsesquioxane) and SS Surface Modification (proposed INCI: triethoxystearylsilane).

According to Gelest, the SD pigments and fillers are coated with a hydroxyl terminated silsesquioxane network that improves adhesion to skin and hair. Because the SD pigments are hydrophobic, yet are not overly sensitive to oils, they are particularly suited for use in eye makeup formulations.

The SS surface modification combines the lubricious feel of oleaginous treatments with physical and chemical stability of a reacted coating. It can be used in a wide range of color and personal care products.
