PURESIL™ ORG 01: Green, eco-forward
PURESIL™ ORG 01 is an innovative eco-forward silicone elastomer gel. Its carrier fluid which represents at least 80% of its composition is derived from sustainable and renewable sugarcane. It meets today's consumers increasing desire for natural, "green", eco-friendly products with a low carbon footprint. The C13-15 alkane is made from the fermentation followed by hydrogenation of sugarcane, a 100% carbon conversion from a natural source according to the ISO16128 standard. Furthermore, the sourcing and processing were designed to maximize sustainability: sugarcane is fast growing and requires low water irrigation; it is sourced 2000km away from the Amazon rainforest to respect biodiversity, and its bagasse is used for electric cogeneration to further minimize the carbon footprint.
Beauty-enhancing, instantly imparting a younger look and feel
PURESIL™ ORG 01 elastomer gel features 5-10 x smaller particle sizes compared to the leading benchmarks. This results in better film-forming, even coverage, and high beauty-enhancing efficacy and formulation benefits, such as:
- Delivering feather-light, soft, smooth, and powdery feel without negative balling effect
- Delivering instant wrinkle masking, minimize the appearance of fine lines
- SPF boosting thanks to the excellent film-forming and even coverage
- High efficiency in thickening water-in-silicone and oil-in-water emulsions
The carrier fluid of ORG 01 is non-volatile, easy to spread, light sensory with quick absorption in the skin. PURESIL™ ORG 01 is an ideal alternative to elastomers delivered in cylcopentasiloxane.
