Touching is believing. There is a silky feel offered by our multifunctional silicone gels, microspheres, and boron nitride powders that can be difficult to achieve using other materials. In creams and lotions, we can put the “wow” right there on your fingertips. Imagine silicone products that can deliver instant anti-aging effects, new textures, and aesthetics as well as improved moisturization and hydration, greater oil absorption and control, and more.

Velvesil* E-Gel PMF Emulsion beauty industry award logo

Along with helping you to develop products that allow consumers to get closer to that ever-elusive desire for skin perfection, Velvesil E-Gel PMF emulsion can help meet a growing market need for water-based formulations that provide the sensory experience of an oil-based formula—namely that smooth, cushioning feel.  Velvesil E-Gel PMF emulsion was named Best Sensory Ingredient by Cosmetics Design’s Global Beauty Industry Awards for 2018.

The silicone elastomer gel swells in the water phase of cosmetic formulations resulting in a refractive index close to that of skin. With this soft-focus technology, your cosmetic can optically blur wrinkles and smooth the texture and appearance of skin—leaving a luxurious sensory skin experience. Soft. Even. Cushioned. Blurred.

beauty industry award logo

Silsoft E-Pearl PMF emulsion was named 2017’s Best Sensory Ingredient by Cosmetics Design’s Global Beauty Industry Awards. This award-winning product can help provide a silky, moisturizing effect to skin when added to facial masks and moisturizers.

The multifunctional Silsoft E-Pearl PMF emulsion can also help formulators achieve desired benefits such as blurring the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brightening the skin, and reducing tack. Silsoft E-Pearl PMF emulsion is also a strong candidate for use in products with high water content. By simply shaking, Silsoft E-Pearl PMF emulsion can be dispersed easily in most water-based formulations, such as toners. It can also be post-formulation added and may be cold processed to allow for formulation flexibility.
