SeraSense SF 5 is a 5cS low viscosity silicone that is sold from the KCC Beauty range for use in a wide variety of industries. In cosmetics applications, the low viscosity of 5cS dimethicone makes the ingredient an extremely good spreading agent, which creates a non-tacky moisture barrier in skin creams and lotions. This fluid can also eliminate the whitening or ‘soaping’ effect seen in W/O emulsions. Soluble in alcohols.
KCC Beauty dimethyl silicone fluids known chemically as polydimethylsiloxanes, are available in various viscosities ranging from 0.65cS to 60,000cS. They are clear, non-toxic, inert and odourless fluids.
Recommended usage level is 1.0 – 50% however depends heavily on application.
