Specialty Hybrid Fluids for Personal Care

Gelest specialty and expertise is seen in the distinctive range of fluids we offer. Our SiBrid® fluids (organic-modified siloxanes), such as our diethicones (INCI: polydiethylsiloxane), deliver enhanced organic material compatibility and improved dispersion capability over dimethicone while maintaining the traditional dimethicone feel. These properties are especially beneficial in sunscreens, makeup, and skin care product development. Our Vertasil® line incorporates interesting natural or botanical based molecules onto a siloxane or trisiloxane unit. These are just a few examples of how our technology can enable your innovation.


Gelest offers performance and formulating benefits with truly unique silicones using its expertise as a developer and manufacturer of silicon chemistries for high technology applications.
