Clariant Develops Silicone For Hair Color Retention

December 9, 2005

Clariant Functional Chemicals Division, Charlotte, NC, developed a new self-emulsifying amino-functional silicone for personal care applications. SilCare Silicone SEA offers benefits in rinse-off and leave-on applications for hair and skin. A key benefit of this technology is color retention in hair care, according to company executives. It provides enhanced gloss and excellent conditioning properties in hair care formulations. In skin care formulations, it enhances skin feel and reduces stickiness in leave-on formulations.
