Lotioncrafter EL3045 is a translucent paste-like silicone gel which imparts a velvety soft, tack-free skin feel. It offers thickening benefits in creams and lotions, showing excellent organic compatibility with cosmetic emollients. In soft solids, such as deodorants and lotion bars, it can improve the application experience, providing a silky, dry finish. In color cosmetics, it enhances the aesthetics of lipsticks and foundations, offering wrinkle masking with its mattifying effects, improved wear resistance, and a velvety finish, making it an ideal ingredient for cream to powder formulations. With its mattifying, light diffusing characteristics, we find it to be ideal for use in our under makeup primers.
Lotioncrafter EL3045 is an excellent anti-syneresis (anti-weeping) agent in water in oil emulsions and anhydrous systems. Picture this product as a fluid- containing sponge. The sponge is the silicone copolymer network and cyclopentasiloxane is the fluid. This silicone sponge allows its carrier or fluid to travel in and out, and can be receptive to other cosmetic ingredients. As a result, it holds oils or liquid in the external phase reducing syneresis.
INCI: Cyclopentasiloxane (and) C30-45 Alkyl Cetearyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer
