Novel Silicone Resin Technology from Dow Corning

woman wearing mascaraYou want cosmetics that are easy to apply and comfortable all day to keep your face fresh morning
to night.

Dow Corning's unique patented blend of MQ (trimethylsiloxysilicate) and T Propyl (polypropylsilsesquioxane) resins have the power to create color cosmetic, skin care and sun care formulations that will supply the performance you are looking for.

With its optimized blend of MQ and T Propyl resins Dow Corning® MQ-1640 Flake Resin allows the formulation of flexible, durable films that are comfortable on skin and provide resistance to transfer that is vital to protect wash-off and rub-off- the result, long-lasting, long-wearing, smudge-proof cosmetic products. When tested in natural movement of skin simulations foundations containing our product stayed smooth and unharmed after stretching and washing.

Dow Corning® MQ-1640 Flake Resin is 100 percent active and solvent free so formulators have flexibility to select their own carrier.

Our product may also benefit you with its ability to potentially improve SPF due to good compatibility with sunscreen actives and improved wash-off resistance.
