Emulsifiers are easy to use and offer flexible manufacturing capabilities, including cold processing. They are high performance and meet the need for superior aesthetics and delivering enhanced actives. A highly desirable benefit in skin care products is added hydration and the ability to moisturize. Silicone emulsifiers allow for high water content formulations which meet the number one consumer need, combating dry skin.
