BRB is completing its gum blend portfolio for personal care

With BRB 1934, a high viscosity gum blend of dimethiconol gum in cyclopentasiloxane, BRB is completing its gum blends portfolio

This product family - consisting of high viscosity gums diluted in a volatile carrier – is already well established on the Personal Care market.

Beside Hair Care applications such as hair serums, gum blends are largely used in other applications taking advantage of benefits such as spreadability, excellent emolliency and smooth non-greasy feel of those cost effective products.

“Thanks to our tailor made capabilities, we probably have the largest portfolio of gum blends on the market” mentioned Grégoire Amice, Global Product Line Manager for Personal Care. “With 2 production and R&D facilities in the Netherlands and Malaysia, we are regularly requested from our customers to develop specific solutions to their needs. Beside standard grades with cyclopentasiloxane, we continuously increased the range with other carriers such as the low viscosity dimethicones, anticipating regulatory trends which required low D4 and D5 contents. Those quick customisation capabilities of BRB are really appreciated from our customers on a quickly moving market. This is our passion to bring this flexibility to support our customers.”
