DOWSIL™ EP-9610 Elastomer Powder wins Sensory Ingredient 2019 Beauty Industry Award
DOWSIL™ EP-9610 cosmetic Powder for color and skin care applications received the first place in the Beauty Industry Award from CosmeticsDesign in the Best Sensory Ingredient category. The award is the second accolade for the Cosmetic Powder after a facial serum formulated with DOWSIL™ EP-9610 Cosmetic Powder was selected first place at in-cosmetics Korea formulation award.
Key benefits of DOWSIL™ EP-9610 include:
- Easy processing due to low agglo meration properties, spherical silicone shape and low hardness level to deliver smoother spread-ability and less clumping. DOWSIL™ EP-9610 Cosmetic Powder can also be added directly to oil-phase ingredients without premixing in another fluid.
- Control of texture variation and viscosity through powder dosage. DOWSIL™ EP-9610 Cosmetic Powder gives formulators the choice of thickening or changing the texture of their creation.
- Reduced risk during the formulation process with less projection hazards than other powder materials.
- Versatility to create products across a variety of applications and textures such as loose and compact powders, oils, solid, gel/paste or liquid form. Potential applications include skin, color, sun, hair care, and antiperspirant categories.
Fabienne, Bizeray, Dow Global Strategic Market Leader for Skin and Sun Care: “This awards is another testament to our technical expertise and our focus on delivering on consumer needs for elevated sensory experience. DOWSIL™ EP 9610 provides our customers with the power of control in design and application while meeting consumers’ desire for unique feel and greater in-use experience. “
