Suncare Protection Solutions
& Sunscreen Formulations


Solutions that are functional and fun to wear

Sun care is about more than just UV protection. It’s about performance and convenience. Resistance to sweat and wash-off, fast absorption and long-lasting wear. And with the growing demand for daily wear sun care, self-tanning and after-sun products—enhanced aesthetics and appearance, too.

Attract consumers in one of the fastest growing market segments with the indulgent, long-lasting UV protection, convenience and aesthetic experience that Dow Corning silicone sun care solutions can provide.

We offer innovative sun care ingredients that enhance protection and performance across a wide range of applications, including daily moisturizers, lip care, after-sun, self-tanning, and men’s sun products.

Touch

Whether improving the spreadability of products containing sunscreens, providing a facilitating rheology modification for a differentiated texture, our silicone formulations make sun care products more pleasing to the touch—so consumers are more likely to apply the amount needed for protection and truly enjoy the way their sun care feels on their skin. Reduce greasiness, minimize tack and sand pickup, increase smoothness and provide the silky, soft, powdery sensory experience customers want.

Beautify

Sun care products enhanced with our specialty silicones go far beyond boosting SPF to better protect skin from harmful UV damage. Thanks to our silicones' light-interacting qualities, they can also provide the aesthetic benefit of a more beautiful appearance.

High Performance, Light Feel Formulations
Provide the high levels of sun protection that consumers demand with the features and benefits that they desire. Take advantage of our light, smooth feeling lotion and spray formulations that offer resistance to wash-off, sand repellency, and easy application on wet skin with minimal white residue.
