AB Specialty Silicones rolled out a line of silicone ingredients that operate as functional alternatives to dimethiconol gum blends, which like many silicones, are in short supply. Vinyl gum blends are recommended for use in skin care, color cosmetics, sun care and hair care applications. According to AB Specialty Silicones, these vinyl gum blends function the same as its dimethiconol gum blend counterparts, however, they have different INCI designations. In skin care, they provide long wear of actives on skin, water resistance and a unique skin feel. For hair care, these materials add anti-frizz properties and conditioning to prevent split ends.
