Dow Corning's Cosmetic Powder masks wrinkles.

* The new Dow Corning 9701 Cosmetic

Powder absorbs sebum and provides a a smooth, powdery feel, according to the company. It provides formulators new options in addressing the growing premium skin care market.

A spherical silicone elastomer powder coated with silica, Dow Coming 9701 Cosmetic Powder (INCI name: Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer [and] Silica), can be used in a wide range of color cosmetic, skin care and sun care products.

The composition absorbs fluid and enables the powder to flow freely without agglomeration, providing superior handling and processing ease. Easy dispersion in different media--even in the presence of pigments--makes it possible to introduce the product into a wide variety of formulations without using sophisticated processes or equipment. In addition, Dow Corning 9701 Cosmetic Powder shows very low sensory threshold values with a pleasant, non-tacky, silky and powdery feel on the skin. More info: personalcare.
