BELSIL® PF 200 is a multifunctional phenyl modified polydimethylsiloxane, the chemical structure of which has been carefully designed to provide multiple attractive benefits such as high refractive index, amphiphilicity, soft feel and easy emulsifiability.

  • INCI PEG/PPG-20/20 Phenylisopropyl Caprylyl Dimethicone


BELSIL® PF 200 comes with a clear advantage over conventional phenyl modified silicones currently available in the market in that it is compatible with wide varieties of polar and less polar solvents and is easily emulsifiable. Clear to translucent oil-in-water microemulsions can be made out of it, a feature that is usually not associated with standard phenyl silicones. BELSIL® PF 200 is also self-dispersible in water, and thus can be incorporated into the aqueous phase of a formulation if desired. It is an ideal phenyl silicone fluid for water-based formulations. Being an amphiphilic fluid, it is also compatible with many esters and oils, a feature that makes it attractive for oil based cosmetic formulations as well. At the same time, it has many attractive characteristics that phenyl silicones are associated with, such as high refractive index and pleasant feel.

Moreover, unlike standard phenyl fluids, water-clear shampoo formulations are possible with BELSIL® PF 200. In Lip Care and Color Cosmetics applications, BELSIL® PF 200 provides good gloss and boosts the brilliance of color. In Skin Care applications such as Facial Fluids, Body Creams, Body Lotions, etc., BELSIL® PF 200 provides nice glow and soft, pleasant sensory feel to skin.

BELSIL® PF 200 can also be used as a secondary emulsifier in water-in-oil type formulations.


Due to its low viscosity, BELSIL® PF 200 can be easily handled. It can be pumped to the formulation mixture and dispersed under ambient condition. Typical use level: 1-20%. The drop in viscosity in some aqueous formulations after addition of BELSIL® PF 200 can be corrected by adjusting the thickener system.
