Siltech – Silicone Coatings for Hands, Hair and Body


Siltech – Silicone Coatings for Hands, Hair and Body

In the current environment, hand sanitisers are a hot topic.  However, they can result in dry skin.

Siltech has a full line of silicone surfactants which can stabilise foam and provide conditioning of the skin as a secondary benefit.

For example, here is a link to a new product being introduced by our Personal Care team.

The product is a protective coating for hands that foams and then washes away.  It’s protective because it encapsulates microbes in micelles, and then washes them down the drain.  It coats the hands completely in a luxurious foam.

Future articles in this series for Surfex will review the myriad of Industrial applications for silicones in more traditional Coatings applications.  This one just seemed appropriate right now!
