Published on 2021-02-26. Edited By : SpecialChem

Gelest_New_CBD_Hybrid_FluidGelest, Inc. introduces Vertasil® TM-CBD1, a novel CBD hybrid fluid that that will increase formulation opportunities for personal care market. The new product provides the lubricity and softness of a silicone oil without the greasiness of natural oils.

Easily Combined with Silicone Gel Matrices

Vertasil® TM-CBD1 is the trisiloxane functionalized cannabidiol isolate that can be easily incorporated into silicone gel matrices, such as polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and other primarily silicone-based formulations.

We specifically designed this patented molecule to extend solubility parameters and improve the compatibility of CBD with a wider range of materials without compromising CBD activity or benefits,” said Daria Long, Gelest vice president and general manager, Personal Care. “The emollience of this modified CBD combined with the ability to form thin films enables distribution over skin and hair, providing effective treatments at extremely low concentrations.”

In fact, Vertasil® TM-CBD1 is the only ingredient that enables the delivery of Cannabidiol from PDMS gels. As an added benefit, it offers the potential for controlled release of CBD,” said Long.

The newest product in Gelest’s Vertasil® line of siloxane “tipped” natural products is compatible with silicones in addition to natural oils, hydrocarbons, esters, glycols and silicone derivatives. Vertasil® TM-CBD1 is targeted for use in silicone serums and oils; silicone, scar treatment and stretchmark patches; and face and eye treatment masks. The ability of this hybrid fluid to generate effect at low concentrations offers economic advantages compared to pure CBD.
