SiClone SR-5, a new, patent-pending ingredient from Presperse, is indistinguishable from cyclomethicone in formulations, yet is 100% silicone-free. According to Presperse, it is the first replacement product that gives the volatility, slip and cushion that formulators expect only from volatile silicones. Whether SiClone SR-5 is used in sticks, roll-ons or aerosols as a non-silicone base, the final antiperspirant formulation has the same volatility and smooth, dry spreadabiltiy as the currently marketed products, according to Presperse.
SiClone SR-5 provides a number of properties for both wash-out and leave-in hair conditioners, including detangling, manageability, anti-frizz and sheen. In hair sprays it allows for soft hold in a quick-drying, nonalcoholic system. Consumers look for oil-free and silicone-free formulas, and SiClone SR-5 delivers in both cases, with richer, more luxurious body and a soft cushion during application. It’s ideal for lotions, creams, primers, serums and UV protection products.
In addition, to improving spreadability, brightness, glide and moisturizing properties, in color cosmetics, SiClone SR-5 helps set pigments for longer wear, contributes to binding and improves the application properties of loose powders. More info: www.presperse.com
