XIAMETER® MEM-2664 Emulsion is a non-ionic emulsion of a high molecular weight polydimethyl-siloxane.
It delivers high-molecular-weight dimethicone through a water-based system.
This product is for use in a variety of hair care applications where the benefits of a high viscosity dimethicone are desired.
Xiameter MEM-2664 Emulsion
Xiameter MEM-2664 Emulsion is designed to meet the need for paraben-free claims in hair care products, and where the benefits of a high viscosity dimethicone are desired;
it is the paraben-free counterpart to the Xiameter MEM-1664 Emulsion.
This nonionic emulsion of high molecular weight polydimethylsiloxane is recommended at 2% or greater in leave-on and rinse-off conditioners and shampoos.
Recommended Use levels: MIN: 2.0 MAX: 2.0
XIAMETER MEM-2664 Emulsion is a non-ionic emulsion of a high molecular weight polydimethyl-siloxane.
To support the creation of hair care products that are both effective and consumer-preferred, the Xiameter brand has introduced a paraben-free silicone emulsion for hair conditioning applications—Xiameter MEM-2664 Emulsion.
“This emulsion is similar to Xiameter MEM-1664 Emulsion, a proven hair-conditioning agent.
The only difference is that Xiameter MEM-2664 Emulsion contains a non-paraben preservative,” explained Kevin Murphy, global market director.
Both products enable formulators to deliver high-molecular-weight dimethicone through a water-based system.
Both can be used to add valuable conditioning and wet- and dry-combing benefits to shampoos and leave-in and rinse-off conditioners.
