No more meltdowns

Today's consumers don't have time to waste on cosmetics or sun care products that don't work or don't last. That's why they insist on products that can keep up with their active lifestyles – wearing beautifully and feeling smooth and comfortable – and not resulting in a midday meltdown. With the new silicone film forming agent, DOWSIL™ FA 4003 DM Silicone Acrylate, it is possible to formulate long-wear products that leave skin soft, smooth and supple.

Evaluation of film flexibility

This test evaluates the ability of the film to withstand a one-fold elongation of substrate. Less cracks indicate better film flexibility.
