Wacker Belsil® RG 90 Crosspolymer
Categories: Fluid; Polymer

Material Notes: BELSIL® RG 90 elastomer gel is a crosslinked high molecular weight organosiloxane polymer dispersed in isododecane. It is delivered as a transparent to semitransparent gel.

Special features: BELSIL® RG 90 is easy to distribute on skin and gives a nice, silky skin feel. The evaporation of isododecane leaves a non-tacky film which improves transfer- and water resistance of cosmetic formulations. Elastomer gel BELSIL® RG 90 shows thixotropic behavior. It undergoes thinning under shear stress and allows easy incorporation of cosmetic ingredients like pigments.

Application: BELSIL® RG 90 is a non-emulsifying elastomer gel that is supplied as a 20% active elastomer in isododecane. It can be formulated in O/W, W/O and W/Si-emulsions as well as in anhydrous systems. The preferred way of incorporation into a formulation is to disperse BELSIL® RG 90 in suitable oils and solvents. Alternatively, it can be added to the finished formulation. It provides a silky skin feel combined with hydrophobic film forming properties. These benefits are applicable in skin care, sun care and color cosmetic formulations. BELSIL® RG 90 can improve water repellence of sun screen formulations. In color cosmetic applications like lipsticks and foundations, it improves transfer resistance. It also adds a cushiony feel to powder formulations like eye shadows
