New: Vinyl Gum Blends

To meet industry demand, we are adding a line of silicone emulsifiers to our personal care offerings. These products are easy to use and offer flexible manufacturing capabilities, including cold processing. They are high performance and meet the need for superior aesthetics and delivering enhanced actives.

A highly desirable benefit in skin care products is added hydration and the ability to moisturize. Silicone emulsifiers allow for high water content formulations which meet the number one consumer need, combating dry skin. These emulsifiers also thicken the end product and help keep overall formulation costs down. Silicone emulsifiers are recommended for use in skin care, antiperspirant & deodorants, and color cosmetics. Product Line Details

  • June, 2018

    We completed a significant expansion and renovation of their R&D and QA location. Additional laboratory facilities and equipment have dramatically increased technical capabilities for product analysis and performance matching that will enhance product development, performance testing and technical service. The lab expansion also includes an intermediary scale up area equipped with pilot reactors used to bring new products from the lab to the marketplace.

    These improvements combined with an increase in manufacturing and storage completed earlier in 2018 all support AB Specialty Silicones’ growth and commitment to put customers first with product innovation, US-based manufacturing and warehousing allowing for shorter lead times.
