Description

INCI:

KCC Beauty SeraSnow SP 13 is 100% active spherical, crosslinked silicone elastomer powder. SeraSnow SP 13 can be included in many products to enhance the skin feel, spreadability, absorption and “soft-focus” effect of the finished product. Can also be used in dry shampoo formulations to absorb natural oils whilst offering a soft feel.

KCC Beauty silicone elastomers 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.

SeraSnow SP 13 is an excellent wrinkle and line reducer, due to the spherical nature of the particulates.

It is recommended to first disperse SeraSnow SP 13 powder in a low molecular weight silicone using a homogenizer followed by further mixing with a propeller-type mixer

Recommended usage level 1-90% depending on application.
