SeraSnow® SP 14 consists of internal spherical silicone elastomer powder coated with an external shell of silicone resin powder, designed to improve the agglomeration of standard silicone elastomer powder. This allows it to have excellent dispersibility and flowability.
SeraSnow® SP 14 can be included in many products to enhance the skin feel, spreadsbility, absorption and soft focus effect of the formulation. It is particularly suited to wrinkle-reducing formulations.
Usage level is highly dependent on application but is usually between 0.5 – 5%.
It is recommended to first disperse SeraSnow® SP 14 powder in a low molecular weight silicone using a homogenizer followed by further mixing with a propeller-type mixer.
