Momentive is a pioneer in LSR and elastomer technology and continues to innovate and evolve to meet today's demands and needs in end products ranging from high-voltage insulators and fuel system valves to medical masks and mobile phones and portable electronics.

Momentive Performance Materials Inc. to Introduce Silsoft Products at in-cosmetics(R) Asia 2014

Momentive Performance Materials Inc. will introduce Silsoft Spread MAX spreading agent and Silsoft Silk conditioning agent at in-cosmetics(R) Asia, Nov. 4 -- 6, 2014. These new personal care ingredients can significantly improve the performance of skin and hair care products. Silsoft Spread MAX Spreading Agent: Silsoft Spread MAX spreading agent is a non-ionic organomodified carbosilane copolymer that can reduce the surface tension of aqueous formulas for improved spreading of actives and inorganic pigments in formulations. Desirable benefits can be achieved with this versatile ingredient, including: Superspreading: Silsoft Spread MAX spreading agent is typically stable in the aqueous phase from pH 2 -- 12 and effective even at low concentrations (0.1% -- 1%). This property enables Silsoft Spread MAX to improve the uniformity and efficiency of products being applied to the skin and hair with reduced tackiness. Targeted delivery: Silsoft Spread MAX spreading agent does not accelerate the decomposition of peroxides and is an excellent choice to consider for quickly delivering water-soluble active ingredients to targeted skin and hair cells with a more even distribution. Silsoft Spread MAX spreading agent may be considered for use in hair coloring, sunscreens, color cosmetics, anti-aging skin care, anti-acne treatments, shaving creams, hair relaxers and more. Silsoft Silk Conditioning Agent: Silsoft Silk conditioning agent has a high cationic charge density to deposit efficiently on damaged hair, imparting superior qualities to over-processed wavy/curly or coarse hair types. This ingredient can help improve formulations by offering: Sensory enhancement: With Silsoft Silk conditioning ingredient, a wavy/curly or coarse hair type that is damaged can look beautiful and feel silky. This agent can make hair easier to manage and maintain the definition of curls, without frizz. Formulation flexibility: Silsoft Silk conditioning agent is easy to incorporate into formulations. As a 36% active non-yellowing micro-emulsion of a patented quaternized silicone terpolymer, Silsoft Silk conditioning agent typically provides excellent performance in a lesser quantity than other lower solids alternatives. This allows formulators to use less of the agent without compromising results.
