The Dow Corning Difference

Achieve superior frizz control in water-based leave-in hair products

Today’s consumers are looking for lighter-feeling alternatives to the anhydrous products traditionally used to control frizz, which can leave hair greasy and too slippery to style.

Introducing Dow Corning® CB-3046 Fluid

INCI name: Dimethicone (and) Phenyl Trimethicone (and) Trimethylsiloxysilicate (and) Dimethiconol

Dow Corning® CB-3046 Fluid is a blend of silicone technologies that tames frizzy, unruly hair – even in water-based formulations.

Dow Corning® CB-3046 Fluid can help you formulate water-based leave-in hair products that give consumers the natural look and feel they crave, the long-lasting frizz control they need, and the ability to style their hair after use. Plus, you can further differentiate your products by creating multifunctional formulations that not only control frizz but also deliver other benefits, such as heat protection and shine.
