Polymethylsilsesquioxanes

Product Description INCI Name

Granhydrosil PSQ-W-GL(NP) is a dispersion of hydrated polymethylsilsesquioxane in glycerin. Allows normally hydrophobic Gransil PSQ into the water-phase of formulations or in high water-content systems. Offers non-oily, non-tacky delivery of glycerin in formulations. Ideal for toners, lotions, serums, and other hydrating formulas.

Granpowder Lumiere DP is micron sized polymethylsilsesquioxane spherical powder fortified with an entrapped photoluminescent diamond powder. The Lumiere DP particles feel and formulate identically to unmodified PSQ. When delivered to the skin, the Granpowder Lumiere DP particles manipulate incident light by converting invisible UV light to blue light (photoluminescence) and selectively scattering favorable blue and green light. The particles settle in the wrinkle and subtly illuminate a blue glow that decreases the appearance of wrinkles.

Polymethylsilsesquioxane (and) Diamond Powder

Granpowder PSQ-Au is a polymethylsilsesquioxane powder surface modified with colloidal gold. Gransil PSQ-Au offers a unique way to formulate gold into water-free applications such as pressed powders and other anhydrous make ups.

Polymethylsilsesquioxane (and) Gold

Granpower PSQ-Pt is a polymethylsilsesquioxane powder surface modified with colloidal platinum. Gransil PSQ-Pt offers a unique way to formulate platinum into all personal care formulations, including water-free applications such as pressed powders and other anhydrous make ups.

Polymethylsilsesquioxane (and) Colloidal Platinum

Granpowder QSC is an innovative hydrophilic microsphere powder that offers new formulating possibilities with water-based formulations. Structurally GRANPOWDER QSC is comprised of a silicone resin powder surface bonded with silica.

Polymethylsilsesquioxane/Silica Crosspolymer

Granpowder T-35 is a solid “dispersion” of ultrafine titanium dioxide in polymethylsilsesquioxane. Granpowder T-35 is not a physical blend as titanium dioxide particles are adsorbed onto the surface of the polymer through a dehydration mechanism. Through this process Granpowder T-35 removes the typical unpleasant sensorial properties of titanium dioxide. Suggested applications include color cosmetic formulations such as foundations, pressed powders, lipsticks, and anhydrous make ups.

Polymethylsilsesquioxane (and) Titanium Dioxide (and) Stearic Acid (and) Alumina

Granpowder USQ is a unique blend of two spherical powders of polyurethane and polymethylsilsesquioxane. Granpowder USQ provides an optimized “soft focus” effect along with a soft, creamy skin feel. A bimodal distribution of particle size enhances performance properties. Applications include skin care, body care, sun care, and color cosmetic (cream to powder transitions) formulations.

Polymethylsilsesquioxane (and) HDI/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer

Granpowder Z-35 is a solid “dispersion” of ultrafine zinc oxide in polymethylsilsesquioxane. Granpowder Z-35 is not a physical blend as titanium dioxide particles are adsorbed onto the surface of the polymer through a dehydration mechanism. Through this process Granpowder Z-35 removes the typical unpleasant sensorial properties of titanium dioxide. Suggested applications include color cosmetic formulations such as foundations, pressed powders, lipsticks, and anhydrous make ups.

Hybrid Interpenetrating Polymers

Product Description INCI Name

Gransil ECA is a hybrid silicone composite powder coated with citric acid. Gransil ECA exhibits a soft, silky feel and an excellent dispersibility in oils. When combined with low viscosity silicone oils or non-polar oils, Gransil ECA swells and thickens the oils to a gel with a minimal shear mixing. Gransil ECA can be combined with other powders, rendering a spongy, soft touch and an outstanding oil absorption benefit.

Dimethicone/Divinyldimethicone/Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer (and) Citric Acid

Gransil ECW is a hybrid silicone composite powder integrated with about 10% carnauba wax. The structure consists of interpenetrating networks of dimethicone and polymethylsilsesquioxane and a layer of carnauba wax. Gransil ECW features an extraordinary soft feel and is easy to disperse in oils. Gransil ECW forms a smooth cream upon incorporation with silicone or other suitable oils without requiring high shear mixing or heat processing. This provides a simple way to formulate carnauba wax into a cream, lotion, serum or foundation. Gransil ECW is recommended to be pre-mixed with a volatile or 5 – 10 cSt silicone fluid prior to being combined with other liquid ingredients.

Dimethicone/Divinyldimethicone/Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer (and) Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax

Gransil EPSQ is a hybrid silicone composite powder consisting of two interlacing polymer networks of polydimethylsiloxane and polymethylsilsesquioxane (PMSQ) The two polymers are interwoven, but not covalently bonded to each other on the molecular scale.
