SiSiB® PC16466 is a kind of silicone gel with slight characteristic odor that contains polyether groups, which not only has the skin feel, but also it can be an emulsifying agent in water-in-silicone oil and water-in-oil systems.
This product can enhance the thickness feel for water-in-silicone oil and water-in-oil systems, provides better stability and soft, silky-powdery smoothness, and the semi-gloss effect. In addition, the product can dissolve the non-polar ingredients in the external phase (silicone oil) and the polar ingredients in the inner phase (water) as a dispersant in polar ingredients and non-polar ingredients formulations. It is a good transfer system for both polar and non-polar materials.
Milky-white to light yellow translucent gel
Penetration degree (1/10mm)
SiSiB® PC16466 could be used in a wide range of silicone personal care applications, includes:
Color cosmetics (such as W/O formulation)
Skin care (such as foundation, eye shadow and so on)
How to use:
Thoroughly stir the product into oil phase.
Add water phase to oil phase emulsion slowly.
Speed up the stirring rate to enhance stability of W/O emulsion system, increase proportion of water phase to enhance stickiness.
Added electrolytes, preferably NaCl at a level of 0.5% to 2% in water phase to enhance storage stability of the emulsion system.
The emulsion can be emulsified at ambient temperature if the formulation was free from solid ingredients.
The recommended usage level of this product, dimethicone crosspolymer in skin care, is 3%-10% according to the total amount of the formulation. It is also recommended to carry out preliminary tests to determine the optimum quantity for particular application.
SiSiB® PC16466 is supplied in 20Kg plastic pail or 200Kg steel drum.
