SilDerm® Formulating Base

Our sense of touch is very primal, yet discerning. Little interpretation is required to understand what is perceived when using this sense. As a result, we can easily determine if our skin feels rough and dry or soft and supple. We can also quickly decipher whether a lotion feels silky, gliding smoothly and effortlessly along the skin or if it feels tacky, dragging slowly against the surface. Our sense of touch alone is most likely the reason we use silicones in cosmetics. After all, the function of a cosmetic is practically rendered useless if the consumer doesn’t like how it feels.

SilDerm® Formulating Base is an excellent addition to cosmetic formulations as it can create a feeling of sensorial elegance. It is capable of enhancing the feel of a product while also instantly making the skin feel smoother, softer and younger. The combination of ingredients selected to create this product produce a silky texture that’s easy and comfortable to apply, enhanced with Ammonium Polyacryloyldimethyl Taurate, the product helps absorbs sebum or oil, giving the skin a matte appearance while possibly increasing moisture. Serving as a potent antioxidant, Vitamin E makes this product ideal for anti-aging applications. Coupled with the light diffusing properties, SilDerm® Formulating Base can also help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, in addition to pores, further enhancing a youthful aesthetic.

SilDerm® Formulating Base is compatible with anhydrous ingredients such as oils and waxes. It can even help reduce the heavy, greasy feel that these ingredients often create in a finished product, while enhancing lubricity. SilDerm® Formulating Base is an excellent base useful for designing a variety of decorative applications, including primers and liquid foundations. As an absorption base, formulators can easily transform SilDerm® Formulating Base into an luxurious cream or lotion simply by adding water and actives. Unlike other ingredients, such as waxes and lipids, SilDerm® Formulating Base does not exhibit temperature sensitive changes in viscosity. This low odor formulation is perfect for fragrance-free applications, as well.
