Grant Introduces New Ingredient

March 5, 2014

Grant Industries recently rolled out Gransil VX-418 as well as a new concept, Ice Cream Repair.

The newest addition in the Gransil VX line of silicone waxes, Gransil VX-418 offers innovative texture and sensory capabilities, said the company.

Comprised of a short-chained silicone and C18 stearyl group, Gransil VX-418 fully transitions from wax-to-liquid upon skin contact to offer an extremely light sensory feel. This short chain composition (as compared to other waxes) also provides unique rheology performance and reduces possible syneresis effect in formulation.

According to Grant, the Ice Cream Repair concept was designed to highlight the texture and transition innovation that Gransil VX-418 offers in skin care, color cosmetics and hair care.

The company said Gransil VX-418 and the Ice Cream Repair concept were created as part of a dedicated R&D program to provide innovation and new technology in the texture category. With possible applications in all personal care formulations, Gransil VX-418 is the ideal platform for creating the next trend—not following it.
