Dow Corning Launches Personal Care Fluid

May 2, 2007

Clear, colorless and providing a non-greasy feel, Dow Corning Toray FZ-3196 Fluid can be used as a carrier for other ingredients or as a dispersing medium for hydrophobic powders and pigments in a wide range of personal care products including skin creams, lotions and gels, suntan lotions, makeup removers, facial cleansers, color cosmetics and hair care products.

“FZ-3196 Fluid provides a unique light and smooth feel, superior cleaning with low residue, and improved gloss and color intensity in lipsticks,” said Anja Krause, Dow Corning Life Sciences marketing. “It also helps to improve the aesthetic appearance of cosmetic products by reducing tackiness and greasy feel of natural oils.”

FZ-3196 Fluid expands Dow Corning’s range of volatile silicone fluids, which includes Dow Corning 200 Fluid 0.65cs; Dow Corning 200 Fluid 1cs, Dow Corning 200 Fluid 1.5cs, Dow Corning 200 Fluid 2cs, Dow Corning 2-1184 Fluid, Dow Corning 245 Fluid, Dow Corning 246 Fluid, and Dow Corning 345 Fluid.
