Elkem Silicones unveils a line-up of PURESIL™ Elastomer Gels.

Elkem has recently made the acquisition of Basel Chemie, a company which has developed over the last 20 years a comprehensive range of high-quality silicone based elastomer gels and fluorosilicones.

Cosmetic formulators often face challenges when it comes to differentiation in a crowded marketplace, delivering performance with natural ingredients, and fulfilling consumer's desire for a youthful look and feel. This is why we are thrilled to unveil our new brand of innovative specialty silicones: PURESIL™. 

The PURESIL™ Elastomer gel series is specially designed for skin, hair, sun care, and color cosmetics to enable formulators to unleash their creativity! In addition to performance-enhancing options, an exciting offering largely derived from naturally and sustainably sourced ingredients will be discussed.

Experience the refinement, the PURESIL™ Elastomer Gel advantage:

  • Superior sensory enhancers, easy spread without balling effect, leaving skin silky, soft, and smooth
  • Finer particle sizes and better film former
  • Even coverage with enhanced optical wrinkle masking and SPF boosting
  • Wide range of carriers with choices of different viscosity, volatility, compatibility to cosmetic ingredients
  • Option for natural positioning through a sustainably sourced and naturally derived carrier fluid
