With distinctive emulsifiers, Shin-Etsu is expanding the possibilities of development for a wide range of cosmetic products. The two main classes of emulsifiers are polyether-modified silicones and polyglycerin-modified silicones. Polyether-modified silicones include linear types, branched types and cross-polymer types. Shin-Etsu also offers distinctive alkyl co-modified emulsifiers. Applying these products enables the development of diverse cosmetic formulations


Polyether-Modified Silicones

These emulsifiers enable the creation of distinctive products in terms of viscosity and stability of these emulsions. KF-6038 has good solubility in both silicone fluid and organic oils. Cross-Polymer Type Shin-Etsu's KSG-210 swells in silicone fluid and the products in our KSG-300 series swell in organic oils. Minute cross-linked particles orient at the interface with water and swell in oil to form a network. This makes it possible to create highly stable W/S (W/O) emulsions.
