Consumers increasingly desire color cosmetics and skin care products with natural ingredients – without sacrificing long-lasting performance. Using advanced silicone technology and a bio-based carrier, Dow has developed a solution with greater natural content – without performance trade-offs. The product even carries a sustainability message in its name: Proven Efficiency. Planet Savvy (PEPS).

DOWSIL™ FA PEPS Silicone Acrylate is a high-performing film former that helps you design long-lasting color cosmetics and skin care products with increased natural content.

  • Delivers superior long-lasting wear benefits
  • Uses a carrier 100 percent derived from renewable feedstocks, lowering dependence on fossil resources
  • Helps meet a natural content of up to 60 percent (ISO 16128 for substances)
  • Meets desired performance attributes in color cosmetics
  • Superior water and sebum repellency and excellent rub-off resistance translates into long-duration benefits (Figures 1-3)
  • High film elasticity delivers a comfortable wear experience (Figure 4)
  • Excellent water vapor permeability and a non-occlusive film support high skin tolerance (Figure 5).
