Gransil LTX is an o/w emulsion of crosslinked silicone elastomer. The globular droplets of the silicone elastomer have an average particle size of sub-micron. Gransil LTX is made by employing our silicone technology and emulsification techniques. Gransil LTX exhibits a unique dry, silky feel and forms a non-stretching elastic film on the skin by coalescence. Gransil LTX can be mixed into many types of skin and hair care formulas, in particular, spray type formulas to take advantage of the fine particle size of our silicone elastomers. Gransil LTX imparts numerous distinctive benefits to cosmetic formulas such as a superior smooth and silky feel, a dry-powder make-up effect and a long-lasting matte look. When used at concentrations above 75%, Gransil LTX can form a matte "skin" and cover the fine wrinkles, resulting in a youthful appearance. Gransil LTX is suitable for use in nonionic, zwitterionic, cationic and anionic formulas.
