Description

KCC Beauty SeraSilk EL 61 is a mixture of a high molecular weight crosslinked silicone elastomer in 6cS dimethicone fluid. SeraSilk EL 61 can be included in many products to enhance the skin feel, spreadability, absorption and “soft-focus” effect of the finished product.  One of the main benefits of this product is its low cyclic content (<0.1%).

KCC Beauty silicone elastomer blends are strong mattifying agents and are ideal for use in colour cosmetics applications where their sebum absorbing properties offer a matte, smooth and non-greasy appearance. They 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.
