PCHi 2018: WACKER Presents Two Silicone Microemulsions with Excellent Conditioning Functions
Shanghai, Mar 19, 2018
At PCHi 2018, WACKER will present two silicone microemulsions with excellent conditioning effects. With the unique ingredient of trimethylsiloxy silicate ester, BELSIL® ADM 8600E features excellent film-forming properties. It can effectively repair damaged hair and protect the hair color after dyeing. BELSIL® ADM 8105E strongly reduces the dry and wet combing forces. In the circumstance of high addition dosage, the product appearance remains clear. Therefore, BELSIL® 8105E allows the formulation of transparent hair care products. PCHi 2018 takes place in Shanghai from March 19 to 21.
Amino silicone oil and amino silicone emulsions are the most frequently-used additives for hair care products. Their conditioning effects vary due to different molecules and molecule structures. BELSIL® ADM 8600 E, WACKER’s newly launched conditioning agent , is a nonionic microemulsion of an aminofunctional polydimethylsiloxane. A unique ingredient which is added to the product is trimethylsiloxy silicate ester. This active substance deposits at the hair surface and forms a lasting film which protects the hair cuticle and effectively repairs hair damaged by perming and dyeing. BELSIL® ADM 8600 E significantly reduces dry and wet combing forces as well as hair static. It also provides a silky touch to the hair and can slow down color fading after dyeing. BELSIL® ADM 8600 E is especially suitable for hair care products for repair of strongly damaged hair and for products used after dyeing. It can be formulated in shampoos, rinse-off conditioners and hair masks, as well as stay-with conditioners, pump sprays and styling products, such as hair mousse.
At PCHi, WACKER will also present BELSIL® ADM 8105 E, a nonionic microemulsion which contains ammonia-terminated polydimethylsiloxane. The amino group of the silicone fluid makes for hair care products which are able to form a hydrophobic protection layer at the hair surface. This layer effectively reduces the dry and wet combing forces and provides a silky and soft touch. Hair care products keep their clear appearance, even if BELSIL® ADM 8105 E is used in high quantities. Moreover, the fluid is stable at high and low temperatures and provides a clear and fluffy effect. BELSIL® 8105E is especially suitable for the formulation of transparent and refreshing hair care products.
