Exploring new opportunities in cyclic-free formulating


The ever-evolving Personal & Beauty Care industry is soon to be faced with a regulatory requirement to formulate away from cyclic silicones in rinse-off products and more recently the proposed legislation to eliminate the use of cyclopentasiloxane and cyclohexasiloxane from all personal care products.

The removal of these valuable materials from the formulators’ tool kit will challenge the best formulators to re-create cyclic-free products that provide benefits of cyclo-silicones that bring the same enjoyable experience for todays’ consumers. 

This presentation will briefly discuss the proposed legislation and will help visitors to explore a range silicone blends that will assist with cyclic-free evolution. All without compromising on a high quality end product.
