Emulsifying Silicone Gels

In the products of our KSG Series, crosslinked silicone polymers are combined with a silicone fluid or other fat or oil.
Products in which the crosslinking portion of the molecule is a hydrophilic group can be used as a W/O emulsifier and will produce stable emulsion.
These functional materials can also be used as a thickening agent for the oil phase, so they can be used to create W/O cosmetic preparations with excellent stability.
The KSG Series offers great variety in terms of the hydrophobic and hydrophilic components.
Users can select the best product for their needs based on compatibility with the oil to be used and the desired feel.

Silicone Gels

The KSG Series is a line of gels created by combining crosslinked silicone polymers with silicone fluid or other oils.
Those in which the crosslinking portion consists of silicone chains are advanced materials that function as thickeners for the oil phase, and can impart a degree of structural viscosity.
Shin-Etsu produces gels that are compatible with a variety of oils and offer great variation in terms of tactile feel.

Silicone Gels

Standard type

These gels were created by combining a crosslinked silicone with a 3D network structure with a silicone fluid. KSG-15 and KSG-1510 can be used to increase the structural viscosity of the oil phase without big effect on feel. They can be used to prepare W/O, O/W, and non-aqueous emulsions, and the final preparations will be more stable thanks to the thickening of the oil phase.
