To help hair care formulators develop multi-functional products designed to meet their customers’ wide-ranging needs, the XIAMETER® brand from Dow Corning provides a selection of high-quality silicone materials for different hair types.
“With the trend toward hair products tailored to individual needs, silicones impart a range of benefits,” said Shelley Bausch, XIAMETER® vice president and executive director. “Through our selection of ingredients, formulators can create products that address different hair types—dull, dry, damaged, thin, color-treated or rebellious—so that hair looks and feels noticeably better.”
Silicone products, such as XIAMETER® MEM 1664 Emulsion and XIAMETER® MEM 1310 Emulsion, can help improve the performance of shampoo formulations by delivering enhanced wet and dry combing benefits. These also can provide hair with a smooth, soft, and dry feel. In addition, silicones’ film-forming properties can enhance hair strength.
