A pioneer in the field of silicones for personal care products, SESA will be exhibiting with a poster entitled, “Silicone Tools: Stick Suncreen Formulations.” In this presentation, SESA cosmetic chemists will demonstrate the use of its revolutionary silicone cross polymer technology and phenyl modified silicone to formulate anhydrous, or water containing stick sunscreens, for a fresh feeling, unique sensory experience, minimal whitening, and ease-of-application. Today’s consumers are looking for more convenience in sun care products, with benefits such as a non-greasy feel, minimized skin care routine, and ease-of-use. The goal of SESA’s new stick sunscreen formulations are to overcome many of the deficiencies of current formulations in the marketplace that are not convenient, portable, and/or aesthetically pleasing.
SESA’s functional silicone technology can provide solutions to formulation challenges in developing emulsions/anhydrous sunscreens–affording functionality, as well as good sensory and sun protection which directly address these growing consumer demands in the trending sunscreen stick format. Each formulation (KF-56A / KSG-18 / KSG-320 / KF-6038) showcased in Shin-Etsu’s advanced poster presentation are stick sunscreens that contain organic UV filters. Phenyl modified materials in the family of products provide great compatibility between the UV filter and silicone properties while also adding a nice radiant effect.
This silicone crosspolymer technology features phenyl modified fluids and elastomer gels that create an emulsion stick with water–almost like a clear oil stick. The newly formulated textures, in a portable clear stick, have no whitening, are not messy, and provide a dry after-feel. Additionally, they provide consumers with an ease-of-use/on-the-go protection that can be used on the face or body–providing a nice glow on the skin. The SESA stick sunscreen product family includes:
• KF-56A: Phenyl modified silicon fluid / Face & Body oil stick with a nice glow
• KSG-18: Phenyl modified elastomer gel
• KSG-320: Alkyl modified self-emulsifying elastomer gel emulsion stick
• KF-6038: Emulsion sunscreen stick that uses properties of KSG-320 to provide high-cooling and face moisturizing.
