PVP/Si-10P encapsulate INCI Name: PVP (and) Dimethicone
PVP/Si-10P encapsulate combines benefits of both film-forming polymers and dimethicone in personal care products, while minimizing drawbacks associated with silicones (greasy feel, build-up). They allow stable formulation of water-insoluble silicone in aqueous products, are compatible with anionic surfactants, stabilize foam and have good stability during storage. PVP/Si-10P encapsulate is ideal for providing longer-lasting conditioning effects in skin care applications such as shower gels and lotions.
Used in face and body wash applications.
