New Brand Name, Same Quality Product and Service: Dow Corning® Silicone-Based Home and Personal Care Products Rebrand to DOWSIL™

Dow Home & Personal Care, a global business unit of the DowDuPont Materials Sciences division, launches the new DOWSIL™ product name for its heritage Dow Corning® silicone-based home and personal care products. The new name emphasizes the legacy silicone expertise spanning many markets, paired with Dow’s unmatched R&D capabilities and global reach.

With more than a century of experience delivering award-winning solutions and technologies in home and personal care markets, Dow has transformed the way formulators and brand owners create products by enhancing performance, product sensory and delivering value to consumers around the world. DOWSIL™ will build upon this legacy to help brands maintain a competitive edge in a number of highly-concentrated home and personal care markets with its multi-functional solutions, such as:

  • Skin and sun care: differentiated solutions to create multi-functional skin and sun care products with superior sensory and performance, applications include lotions, creams, gels, antiperspirants, deodorants, razor strips, and more.
  • Hair care: ingredients to improve hair’s resistance to breakage, provide enhanced sensory and appearance, and provide various levels of conditioning.
  • Color cosmetics: performance-enhancing solutions for color cosmetics that help intensify, dramatize and deliver long-lasting color.
  • Fabric care: solutions to address foam control and provide easy rinsing in application.
  • Household care and cleaning: solutions for foam control, enhanced shine, and ease of cleaning for longer-lasting results.

“As we continue the legacy we have built in home and personal care products, we remain focused on our customers and their needs to provide them with innovative solutions under our new brand name,” said Eric Peeters, global business director, Home & Personal Care. “We look forward to a smooth transition as we continue to supply products and services our customers have relied upon for decades.”

Through a phased implementation over the next year, Dow Corning® branded silicone products will transition to the new DOWSIL™ name. Product descriptors that are part of the product names today will remain the same and customers can expect the same high-quality solutions they currently rely on.

Customers can enjoy a simpler online search and buying experience, driven by a new Consumer Solutions website that replaces the current www.dowcorning.com platform. In an effort to guide customers through this transition, Dow has created a continuously updated integration information center at www.dowcorning.com/integration. Customers can find implementation updates, integration activity materials, FAQs, as well as a tool to generate a chemical equivalency certificate for specific products.
