Description

SeraSense SF 500 is an incredibly popular 500cS low viscosity silicone that is sold from the KCC Beauty range for use in a wide variety of industries. In cosmetics applications, low viscosity silicones are often used as emollients in skin care preparations offering excellent feel and low tack, whilst its spread characteristics can enhance formulation dispersion on the skin as well offering a non-greasy after effect.  It is also possible to reduce the whitening or ‘soaping’ effect seen in W/O emulsions.

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 – 10% however is dependent on application.
