DESCRIPTIONS:  Silicone CS-1600 silicone elastomer blend is  a mixture of high molecular weight silicone elastomer in cyclomethicone. Since a clear to slightly translucent 
gel, Silicone CS-1600 could be dispersed in oil phase excellently. The product may be formulated into w/o emulsions, water-in-silicone oil, and o/w emulsions and 
anhydrous products to provide dry smoothness and a light silky skin, 
non-greasy feel.  

Appearance: Clear to slightly translucent gel 
Penetration degree (1/10mm):   300-450 
Non-volatile content (%, w/w):  ≥14

APPLICATION: Silicone CS-1600 may be used in skin care, hair care, and other potential formulations, such as sun care, color cosmetics, and styling aid, etc.

Silicone CS-1600 could be dispersed into the oil-phase using simple mixing. 
- It may be added to the oil phase or silicone phase in an emulsion 
- It can be post-added to emulsions provided the emulsion is viscous 
enough for the products to be dispersed. 
- For ease of use, blending with Dimethicone or cyclomethicone may 
reduce its viscosity. 
- When heat is used, the material should be processed in an enclosed 
vessel to prevent the cylcopentasiloxane from volatilizing. 
- The recommended processing temperature is not over 60 Celsius. 
The suggested usage level is 1%-20%

PACKAGING: Silicone CS-1600 is supplied in 6kg, 18kg plastic pails or 180kg iron drums
