Wacker Belsil® REG 1100 Crosspolymer
Categories: Fluid; Polymer

Material Notes: BELSIL® REG 1100 resin elastomer gel is a nonemulsifying silicone copolymer network blended with a non-volatile, low viscosity dimethicone. It is a transparent gel, which provides a very pleasant sensory property both during application and afterwards. BELSIL® REG 1100 can act as a thickener in formulations while delivering a smooth application. It exhibits shear-thinning behavior. This attribute allows for formulation of cosmetic products that spread easily during application and facilitates the incorporation of pigments into a formulation.

Special features: BELSIL® REG 1100 is easy to distribute on skin and gives a unique silky feel. The incorporation of a silicone resin into the elastomer structure of BELSIL® REG 1100 provides a long lasting non-tacky film, which improves the water and transfer resistance of formulations. BELSIL® REG 1100 acts as a carrier for fragrances and allows a slow release of the fragrance.

Application: BELSIL® REG 1100 is added to the oil or silicone phase of a formulation or most preferably to an already formed emulsion. The product should be dispersed to yield optimum results, but short times of stirring are sufficient. When BELSIL® REG 1100 is diluted with solvents, the viscosity of the product decreases significantly and hence can be easily adjusted. BELSIL® REG 1100 is used as an ingredient for various skin care, color cosmetic and hair care products. It provides a substantive hydrophobic film, making it ideal for use in sun care formulations. In lipsticks and foundations, it improves transfer resistance. BELSIL® REG 1100 also imparts a cushiony feel to moisturizing creams, sunscreens lotions, eye gels, foundations, concealers and BB creams. BELSIL® REG 1100 can be used to thicken the oil phase of emulsions or anhydrous cosmetic formulations. In pressed powder cosmetics it acts as binder. Other typical applications of BELSIL® REG 1100 include mascara, cleansing products, styling products, conditioners, deodorants and much more.
