Description

SeraSilk® PD 73 is a mixture of a high molecular weight spherical particulate, silicone elastomer diluted in 6cS dimethicone fluid. SeraSilk® PD 73 can be included in many products to enhance the skin feel, spreadability, absorption and “soft-focus” effect of the finished product.

KCC Beauty powder elastomer blends are strong mattifying agents and are ideal for use in colour cosmetics applications where their sebum absorbing properties are required. In anti-ageing products, they instantly reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.  The SeraSilk® PD series is particularly effective at this due to the incorporation of the spherical powder.  They also have the ability to increase formulation oil phase viscosity and produce a dry, silky smooth skin feel.

Recommended usage level:  1 – 90%, depending on application
