We’re not making just another pretty face. We’re transforming lives.
The use of POSS in personal care formulations is a new and safe way to achieve hydration, transfer resistance, durability, and supple textures, without the inconvenience of formulation complexity. Qualities include:
POSS has been demonstrated to be non-toxic, and cytocompatible. In the EU, several POSS Molecular Silicas® are R22 rated “not harmful if swallowed.” POSS has been used in dentistry and food packaging for over 10 years.
POSS provides a means to create synergies between key ingredients to simplify formulations and create new performance effects.
Several POSS compounds actively fight microorganisms and have shown excellent wound closure, low migration, and strong adhesion to skin and hair.
Tissue scaffolds containing POSS support cell binding, viability, and proliferation, potentially eliminating the need for less compatible materials commonly used to augment or replace artificial human tissue. POSS currently forms a key component in synthetic tear ducts, blood vessels, ears, heart valves, noses, and tracheas.
