While long-wearing make-up occupies a significant place in the current market there is one critical consumer perception inhibiting market growth; long-wearing make-up often makes the skin feel dry. The holy grail for all long-wearing cosmetics is to achieve an enhanced duration of wear while maintaining a natural appearance and feel on the skin. SilDerm® Smoothing is a long lasting product that spoils the senses.
The product enhances the feel of formulations, helping color cosmetics and skin care formulas glide effortlessly across the skin. SilDerm® Smoothing provides a silky cushion when applied, leaving the skin feeling velvety soft, hydrated and supple, while truly illuminating the overall appearance of the skin by visibly reducing the signs of aging.
SilDerm® Smoothing is a copolymer of cyclopentasiloxane and dimethicone. Cyclomethincones, like cyclopentasiloxane, are often used in cosmetics to impart a velvety cushion on the skin that enhances luminescence and sheen. Dimethicone, a silicone oil, is known for its film forming properties which enhances the spreadability of this product, resulting in a polished and even skin aesthetic. Incorporate SilDerm® Smoothing into cosmetic formulations to enhance the emulsion system of your finished products.
This product is typically found in hair & skin conditioning products as shampoos, conditioners, creams, lotions, as well as color cosmetics (e.g. lipsticks, lip balms, makeup).
