Silsoft* EAU Microgel

Polysilicone-34 (and) Isononyl Isononanoate (and) Water. Silsoft* EAU microgel by Momentive Performance Materials is a unique texturizing structure agent that delivers multiple benefits for aqueous systems in make-up, sunscreens, skin and hair care categories, making it an ideal go-to product for formulators seeking multifunctional ingredients that help to create exciting new products. This distinct microgel core-shell technology delivers a wide range of creative textural effects and a refreshing, light-weight sensation to the skin, even in body butters and high oil based products. Typically tacky or draggy on the skin, Silsoft* EAU microgel helps improve the spreadability of organic and inorganic sunscreens and provides a light fresh skin feel. As an ideal oil-in-water emulsifier, Silsoft* EAU microgel disperses pigments for brush and beauty sponge application of foundations, CC creams and tinted moisturizers for a smooth, even coverage. Applications include skincare creams, lotions, serums, body butters, sunscreens, spa product lines and make-up.
