Selecting the proper silicone for a particular formulation starts with identifying the specific attributes that are desired. Once the attributes are defined, other formulation issues such as solvent type, concentrations and interaction between ingredients need to be determined. In order to facilitate these selections, Siltech has developed a number of “kits” that allow for rapid screening of silicones by application. Specifically, kits for wetting and emulsification allow the user to quickly screen the effects of a given material in the finished formulation.
Siltech offers a line of standard personal care products, along with many formulations and technical presentations. Additionally, our chemists work jointly with customers developing specific molecules and products for individual applications. We also address customer problems that can only be solved by exploring new technologies. Such cooperative agreements have proven very useful in developing many new and innovative cosmetic applications.
As silicones continue to play an increasing role in the formulation of new and novel personal care products, Siltech remains committed to lead the development of unique and sophisticated products for this growing industry.
