Presperse, a premier global supplier of raw materials and advanced technologies for the cosmetic industry, was recently granted US Patents for two of their products: SiClone® SR-5 and SiClone TD 150. The main focus of these ingredients is their non-silicone based compositions, an accomplishment in regards to the hesitation to use silicones in cosmetics over the past few years.

SiClone SR-5 is composed entirely of hydrocarbons, maintaining silicone-like aesthetic and volatility properties while eliminating the need for cyclopentasiloxanes. This product can be used for full or partial replacement of volatile silicones.

SiClone TD-150 utilizes SiClone SR-5  in its composition, allowing several important benefits with its use. This particular ingredient is a non-silicone dispersion based on hydrocarbons, providing ease of use and eliminating the need for a wetting agent which can often times cause instability within the formulation. A high concentration of titanium dioxide is achieved in this product (35-40%), previously unreachable without the use of a wetting agent.

Both products can be utilized in skin care products, color cosmetics, pharmaceutical products and especially in UV-attenuating formulations such as sunblocks, sunscreens and tanning lotions.
