In response to the continuing concern over ozone depletion and consumers’ increased exposure to heightened levels of UV radiation and potential skin damage, Shin-Etsu Silicones of America, Inc. has recently updated its sunscreen toolbox.

According to the company, these additions to the line include silicones that offer key benefits such as durable UV protection, high water resistance, excellent skin feel, wider formulation latitude and enhanced SPF values.The SESA products include silicone-acrylate film formers, MQ resin film formers, and amino-modified gum blends that have features to overcome the low water resistance and heavy feel deficiencies of current O/W systems that use organic sunscreens as protectants.

The SESA sunscreen toolbox now includes the KP-545L silicone-acrylate film former, KF-7312L MQ resin film former and KF-8020 amino-modified gum blend, respectively.The KP-545L and KF-7312L features 2cs dimethicone as its base fluid and therefore provides an effective, quality alternative to similar D5 derivative materials.The KF-8020 uses a higher viscosity dimethicone.The combined use of ingredients in the SESA sunscreen toolbox deliver desired physical properties and benefits to existing sunscreen formulations − offering advanced UV protection and sensory/feel benefits.
