Silica Dimethyl Silylate
Silica Dimethyl Silylate is type of nanofined silica treated with dimethyl silylate. It is mainly used in as bulking agents in recipes containing oil and hydrophobic oil. It helps with thickening the formulation and create a clear gel-like appearance without the use of waxes and heat. Think of it like using cornstarch in cooking! It also improves the slip and feel of the formula and aids suspensions of pigments, glitters, mica, etc.
Please note that this nanofined silica is very light weight. It can fly everywhere when open. We advise that you wear dust cover protection while handling and working with it to avoid inhaling the particles.
We would suggest experimenting with Silica at 1% - 15% by weight of the formula.
Due to the lightweight nature of product, we are currently offering this product in only one size.
