COSMETIC FLUIDS are silicone compounds containing various combinations of elastomers in a variety of diluents. These products vary in viscosity, feel, shine, lubricity, and water resistance. Grades of COSMETIC FLUIDS are based on solids, diluents, and elastomer derivatives. These variations give a wide range of characteristics when formulating products.
COSMETIC FLUIDS have become a popular additive to hair shine products including serums, gels, micro-emulsions, and refractive index based products. They can also be used as excellent skin lubricants due to their "non-greasy feel". They perform well in conditioners, sun products, anti-perspirants, creams, and lotions. Chemsil also provides specialty COSMETIC FLUIDS that can be used as silicone delivery systems for active ingredients including retinol, analgesics, and sunscreens without a greasy after-feel.
