Dow Corning Solves Compatibility Limitations

November 15, 2005

Dow Corning 5562 Carbinol fluid provides excellent particulate suspension while offering a solution for the aesthetic and compatibility limitations associated with ingredients such as organic oils, according to company executives. The silicone carbinol fluid is available from Dow Corning’s beauty and personal care solutions business within the company’s life sciences industries group.
Dow Corning 5562 Carbinol fluid can be used as a suspension aid for pigments or active ingredients. Less equipment power is required to suspend pigments in the silicone carbinol fluid than in castor oil. The fluid is compatible with a wide variety of raw materials.
