Dow Corning Aerogels Provide Soft-Focus Effect

New studies demonstrate that in addition to their ability to absorb oil and modify rheology, Dow Corning silica silylate aerogel materials generate a soft-focus effect. The significant in vitro soft focus effect of these materials is an expression of the way light behaves on the skin and in wrinkles.

In general, wrinkles appear as dark, non-reflective areas because of the way light falls and remains there. In contrast, if light is reflected and diffused, the wrinkle appears less prominent.

Dow Corning silica silylate aerogels act as optical light diffusers, preventing light from becoming trapped, and allowing for transparency. More info: www.dow-corning.com.
