Technical Seminars Theatre 3

The ever-evolving Personal Care industry is soon to be faced with a regulatory requirement to formulate away from cyclic silicones 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 the same benefits that cyclic silicones provide and consumers enjoy.

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