FSS SilDerm Acrylate

Silicone provides functionality to cosmetic and personal care products which is almost unparalleled by other materials. Often used to improve epidermal slip and increase hair combability, silicone has reshaped the way formulators construct hair and skin care products.

Creating a copolymer of silicone grafted with polybutylacrylate may further enhance the functionality of silicone by optimizing the chemical’s compatibility with solvents such as cyclomethicone, dimethicone, hydrocarbon fluids, mineral oils, esters and fatty acids. Grafting silicone with polybutylacrylate is achieved by performing a free radical polymerization of the silicone in the presence of polybutylacrylate.

The benefits of using such a material are seen with in the color makeup industry, as the copolymer may be used as carriers and binders of pigments and fillers. The material may also enhance the adhesion of color on the skin, which allows formulators to use less pigment to achieve the same color, while simultaneously creating a smooth, non-tacky feel.

Silderm Acrylate may be used not only to achieve the aforementioned results, but it may also be used as an emulsifier for silicone/oil emulsions as well as provide optimal “water proofing” properties for long lasting make-up wear. It may also help formulators stabilize multi-phase systems. Silderm Acrylate is a clear liquid that is intended for use as an ingredient in make-up products such as lipstick, foundation, mascara and blush.
