As consumers' expectations from sun care products grow, skin care product formulators are turning to XIAMETER® and Dow Corning® brand silicone fluids and emulsions to deliver high protection, silky feel, wash-off resistance and sun protection factor (SPF) enhancement.
A recent addition to the collection of XIAMETER® personal care prototype formulations is a sun care cream that features XIAMETER® PMX-0345 Cyclosiloxane Blend, Dow Corning® 2502 Cosmetic Fluid, Dow Corning® 2501 Cosmetic Wax and Dow Corning® 556 Fluid.
The XIAMETER® web-enabled brand of Dow Corning was introduced in 2002 to service customers who wanted and needed standard silicone products at market-driven prices. The XIAMETER® business model was expanded in 2009 and now offers customers enhanced self-service functionality, extended volume quantity options, transparent pricing and more credit term choices. In addition, a broader range of standard silicone products is offered as well as the ability to purchase through local distribution.
XIAMETER® silicone fluids, emulsions, rubbers, sealants, and silanes are widely used as performance enhancers by multiple industries, including personal care, textiles, construction, automotive and more, where they provide qualities such as durability, stability, adhesion, and weather resistance.
