It is patent-protected for use in shampoos, conditioners, styling aids, fixatives, body washes and moisturizers.
Also new from Dow Corning is 5562 Carbonol fluid, a versatile, multifunctional hydroxyfunctional silicone that, according to company executives, can be used in a range of personal care applications for color cosmetics, underarm, face and body, sun care and hair care.
