& Sunscreen Formulations
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.
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.
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.
