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).

Frequently Bought Together
DOWSIL™ 1200 OS Primer
An air drying primer supplied as a dilute solution of moisture reactive materials in volatile siloxane and is used to improve both the quality and speed of adhesion development to room temperature vulcanizing silicone sealants to a variety of common non-porous substrates.
DOWSIL™ 983 Structural Glazing Sealant Base and Curing Agent
Designed for specialized use where dual structural and weatherseal applications are desired for factory glazing and curtainwall production. Once cured, this structural sealant forms a durable, flexible, watertight bond that can be warranted for 20 years and used in ±25% movement weatherseal applications. It has excellent unprimed adhesion to glass, alodine, and anodized aluminum1, although DOWSIL™ Primer-C OS is recommended for fast and consistent adhesion, especially to high-performance substrates approved for architectural structural glazing applications.
DOWSIL™ 791 Weatherproofing Sealant
A one-part, medium-modulus, elastomeric sealant designed for general weathersealing. It is a silicone formulation that cures to a flexible and curable silicone rubber building joint seal.
DOWSIL™ 556 Cosmetic Grade Fluid
A polyphenylmethylsiloxane for use in skincare, suncare, color cosmetic, hair care, and antiperspirant / deodorant applications. INCI Name: Phenyl Trimethicone
VORASURF™ DC 193 Additive
Industry standard, general-purpose silicone surfactant for rigid polyurethane foam applications. Silicone surfactant for footwear (shoe sole) and integral skin applications.
