AEROSIL® fumed silica for hair care
Hair bleaching agents
AEROSIL® fumed silica effectively prevents moistening and caking of the peroxo and persulfate salts usually used in bleaching powders. This results in improved free-flow properties even after extended storage. AEROSIL® 200 products cam also be used as thickening and stabilizing agents in bleaching creams.
In hair dyes, AEROSIL® fumed silica prevents a premature reaction and caking of powdered colorant components. AEROSIL® 200 is particularly effective as a drying agent in a concentration of up to 4.0 percent w/w. Especially effective flow regulators are AEROSIL® R 972 and AEROSIL® R 812 / AEROSIL® R 812 S. Dispersion dyes can also be stabilized with AEROSIL® fumed silica.
In hair conditioners, hydrophilic AEROSIL® types such as AEROSIL® 200 and AEROSIL® 300, can help increase the volume of the hair, counteracting the “flattening” effect of the conditioning agents.
