The Dow Corning Difference

Make a splash in beauty care with silicone
resin gums

Silicone resin gums are a new class of silicone film-formers designed to form highly flexible and breathable films for improved comfort of wear – and to offer long-lasting properties with excellent water repellency and transfer resistance, making them a good choice for color cosmetics applications … and beyond.
