Consumers want body-care products that are simple to use and leave their skin feeling pleasant and moisturized. What they don’t want is tackiness, which is hardly ever desirable in a cosmetic product. Usually it is something to be avoided, or reduced. Silicones can reduce tackiness – yielding cosmetics with a pleasant feel. Low-viscosity dimethicones and phenyl-modified fluids can be used here. For long-lasting formulations, silicone resin elastomer gels are the answer.
BELSIL® P 1101 is an ethanolic solution of an excellent hair-styling polymer that combines strong hold and softness with a rapid drying time - perceived as low tackiness when the product is applied.
