SPECSIL SPD

Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer

SPECSIL SPD is a non-ionic aqueous dispersion of 2 micron, amorphous silicone elastomer powder. This dispersion offers ease and flexibility when formulating an elastomeric powder into water based cosmetic products, eliminating the need for homogenization. SPECSIL SPD provides unique properties in final formulations. SPECSIL SPD provides wrinkle veiling benefits via its micronized particles. When used alone or in combination with other materials it works to minimize the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles without agglomeration.
