Dow Corning ® MQ-1640 Flake Resin Blend: This new silicone resin blend won the 2011 China Personal Care & Cosmetics Innovation Award. It offers cosmetic formulators the best of both worlds – non-transfer properties that keep makeup looking flawless for extended wear and improved flexibility for enhanced comfort. A specifically formulated blend of silicone resins in flake form that creates a breathable, water repellent film, setting a new standard in long-lasting benefits. In color cosmetics, the new resin helps enhance color intensity and shine, and can potentially improve SPF in sunscreens.
Dow Corning ® Hair Protection Solutions: Ultraviolet radiation, curling irons, and chemicals from coloring, perming and straightening—even frictional forces from daily combing and styling—all contribute to hair damage. Dow Corning’s hair care solutions strengthen and protect against damage, while adding shine, volume, curl retention and frizz control.
“We’re excited to launch several new silicone solutions for skin and hair care this year, offering formulators even more variety to create new product categories that meet consumer needs and deliver results,” said Hiroshi Ogawa, Dow Corning North Asia marketing leader.
