ABIL® Wax 9801
INCI: Cetyl DimethiconeProduct Categories: Emollient, Silicone
ABIL® Wax 9801 is a liquid component that improves SPF response in W/O sun care emulsions based on organic or physical UV filters. This liquid to waxy organopolysiloxane, is synthesized by linking polydimethyl siloxanes with long chain hydrocarbons. Due to its unique chemical structure, this product is interestingly positioned between lipid-like organic substances and polydimethylsiloxanes (known as silicone oils). ABIL® Wax 9801 is soluble in all oils and waxes commonly used in cosmetics.
The good spreadability and the emollient effect of the ABIL® Waxes enable them to improve the application and skincare properties of formulations. They also can contribute to wash resistance.
Due to its spreading effects on skin ABIL® Wax 9801 will increase the effectivity of UV filters in emulsions. Thus it is possible to reduce the level of UV filters and maintain the SPF. The optimum ABIL® Wax type depends on the type or combination of UV filters employed. For emulsions only based on either organic filters or on only physical filters, this product is especially suitable.
