Dow Corning presenting at the Skin and Formulation 3rd Symposium


Léon Marteaux, senior development specialist, Dow Corning Europe SA, will discuss Dow Corning’s unique encapsulation and delivery systems at the Skin and Formulation 3rd Symposium and 10th Skin Forum. The event, for which Dow Corning is a gold sponsor, runs from March 9-10 in the Palais des Congrès of Versailles, France.

Today, most microencapsulation technologies consist of Core Shell type microcapsules that build an organic shell around a lipophilic active. Mr. Marteaux will describe a new route to building a silicate mineral shell with unique features that can improve the overall efficacy of topical products as well as treatment compliance.

Conference and exposition attendees will have the opportunity to talk with Dow Corning representatives about additional high-performance materials including:

• Dow Corning’s Silky Touch product family, which is made up of 10 different silicon-based materials that offer unique aesthetic, pharmacokinetic, and processing benefits to topical pharmaceutical formulations.
• Dow Corning® Q7-9120 Silicone Fluid is an excellent carrier fluid that provides skin protection, emolliency, ease of spreading, and reduced tackiness.
• Dow Corning® ST-Cyclomethicone 5-NF is featured in non-stinging, quick-drying formulations that leave skin with a dry, smooth feel and no oily residue.
• Dow Corning® ST-Elastomer 10 provides unique silky aesthetics and rheology modification through a blend of silicone elastomer in volatile silicone.
