Momentive Launches Silicone-Based Gel for Aqueous-Based Skin Care and Cosmetic Formulations. (“Momentive”) will launch Velvesil E-Gel PMF, an innovative silicone-based, cross polymer network emulsion for the cosmetics industry at the in-cosmetics Global show in London, April 4–6. Velvesil E-Gel is a multi-function, patent-pending formulation that can enable skin imperfection masking along with a luxurious application feel and long-lasting, moisturizing effects in one product.
Personal care formulators can consider Velvesil E-Gel PMF emulsion for use when creating products such as toners, serums, sunscreens and foundations, as well as leave-in and rinse-off hair products.
The new silicone-based gel will be the topic of a Momentive Seminar: “Achieving More with Less – How to Create Novel Textures in Frugal Innovations,” presented on Tuesday, April 4, at 10:40 am. The company’s SilForm* fluids and Silsoft* emulsions and conditioning agents will also be featured.
Velvesil E-Gel PMF emulsion will be on display for formulators to experience firsthand the robust soft-focus effects and cushioning feel the gel can help deliver. To learn more about Velvesil, and the full array of personal care products from the Momentive SilForm and Silsoft product lines, meet with our experts at booth MM70.
