Silicones for Personal Care

Silicones are widely used in personal care formulations because they provide marvelous aesthetic and functional benefits. Silicone fluids provide emolliency, flow and lubricity in the treatment of skin and hair to condition, smooth, and enhance. Volatile silicones enable delivery of color and actives in a smooth flowing, non-cooling base. DyStar’s silicones can provide those benefits while working in conjunction with nature. Our objective is to enable the formulator to bring out the best in nature; to retain and regain the natural beauty of skin, hair, lips and eyes. Our silicones are compatible with traditional materials as well as botanicals and specialty oils used in newer formulations. They can modify these natural raw materials to provide increased activity and functionality. In a phrase, we provide silicones that provide natural but enhanced benefits. Learn more…
