Abstract

Silicone acrylates have been used in the personal care market for several years. These materials are based on a polyacrylate backbone having dendritic silicone side chains and have been used in a variety of applications, although most successful in color cosmetics and skin care. This research disclosure covers a second generation material, having similar structure to the first generation but designed to form a more flexible film. It highlights the potential for use across a wide range of Beauty Care applications such as color cosmetics, skin care, sun care, hair care or anti-perspirants/deodorants. Associated potential benefits encompass film-forming, long-lasting (resistance to water, sebum or mechanical friction) or sensory type of performance aspects, as a few examples. The second generation silicone acrylate is a new alternative to the silicone acrylate technologies available on the market, featuring both different film-forming polymer and carrier choices. While being similar to the first generation in several respects, it showed improved performance in various aspects including film flexibility, film softness or sebum resistance.

Silicone acrylates have been used in the personal care market for several years. These materials are based on a polyacrylate backbone having dendritic silicone side chains and have been used in a variety of applications, although most successful in color cosmetics and skin care. This research disclosure covers a second generation material, having similar structure to the first generation but designed to form a more flexible film. It highlights the potential for use across a wide range of Beauty Care applications such as color cosmetics, skin care, sun care, hair care or anti-perspirants/deodorants. Associated potential benefits encompass film-forming, long-lasting (resistance to water, sebum or mechanical friction) or sensory type of performance aspects, as a few examples. 

The second generation silicone acrylate is a new alternative to the silicone acrylate technologies available on the market, featuring both different film-forming polymer and carrier choices. While being similar to the first generation in several respects, it showed improved performance in various aspects including film flexibility, film softness or sebum resistance.

Introduction

Silicone acrylates have been used in the personal care market for several years. These materials are based on a polyacrylate backbone having dendritic silicone side chains and are available delivered from either cyclopentasiloxane or isododecane as a carrier. They have been used in a variety of applications, although most successful in color cosmetics and skin care. The materials have been described in various research disclosures (485014, 495005, 505025, 505050, 512010). These materials will be referred to as first generation in the remaining of the document.

This research disclosure covers a second generation material, having similar structure to the first generation but designed to form a more flexible film, targeting better wear. The generic structure remains similar compared to the first generation. The product will be referred to as “second generation” material in the rest of this document. It offers new choices in terms of film-forming polymer and carrier solvent (2 cSt polydimethylsiloxane). While the second generation silicone acrylate can provide specific benefits compared to the first generation, in this document, all the examples publicly available using the first generation products can be considered relevant when using the second generation material.

Both generation materials are easy to formulate with and can be integrated into a wide variety of cosmetic systems, including color cosmetics, sun care, skin care, hair care or AP/Deo.

Formulating in Color cosmetics

The second generation material can be considered for a variety of color cosmetics care applications, including oil-in-water (O/W), water-in-oil (W/O), anhydrous or wate...
