DOWSIL™ 2511 Cosmetic Wax
DOWSIL™ 2511 Cosmetic Wax is a water dispersible silicone glycol copolymer wax with a low melting point. It is water soluble, and also compatible with alcohol. DOWSIL™ 2511 melts on contact with the skin for increased moisturization and humectancy. In formulations, it can aid in reducing tackiness, and also offers foam boosting properties.Learn More
Polymer improves long term stability of cleaning formulations ACUSOL™ PRO is an anionically charged, water soluble polymer that enables the formulator to develop streak-free, hard surface cleaners that provide for superior grease removal, and make next-time cleaning easier, without contributing to build-up. ACUSOL PRO can easily be incorporated into the formula and is particularly suitable for neutral and alkaline cleaners such as all-purpose, kitchen, and floor cleaner/degreasers when incorporated at typical levels of 0.5–1.0% active. It may also be used as a hydrotrope, as it can stabilize mixes of otherwise incompatible surfactants, solvents, or other adjuvants, allowing the preparation of more concentrated formulations with greater formulation flexibility. It is stable in trigger spray formulations containing hypochlorite bleach or quaternary disinfectant.Learn More
DOWSIL 5200 Formulation Aid
An alkylmethyl siloxane copolyol designed to prepare stable water-in-oil emulsions DOWSIL™ 5200 Formulation Aid is a liquid alkylmethyl silicone polyether copolymer. Its primary function is to produce water-in-oil emulsions with a low to medium polarity oil phase. Products made with DOWSIL™ 5200 Formulation Aid bridge the gap between oil-in-water and water-in-oil systems, delivering the benefits of protection, water resistance and elegance attributed to water-in-oil formulations but without the greasiness and heaviness of typical water-in-oil systems. DOWSIL™ 5200 Formulation Aid enables the formulation of creams and lotions with low energy processing and at room temperature, resulting in lower energy costs and faster processing times. DOWSIL™ 5200 Formulation Aid has a high molecular weight while still remaining fluid. This inherent property results in the creation of a very stable visco-elastic film at the water/oil interface, therefore DOWSIL™ 5200 Formulation Aid is a very efficient emulsifier and leads to water-in-oil formulations exhibiting excellent stability at high water concentration and low emulsifier levels. It also allows the incorporation of high levels of humectants such as glycerine and propylene glycol, while maintaining a very good sensory profile. DOWSIL™ 5200 Formulation Aid can be used as a co-emulsifier in oil-in-water systems and has also demonstrated hair and skin conditioning properties.Learn More
