CareSil® Brings the Wow Factor Back to Silicones

CareSil announces CES, the world's first and only surfactant-free, fully encapsulated silicone, that creates transformative textures when applied to the skin and fast-forwards breakthroughs in skin care.

NuSil Technology LLC ( is pushing the boundaries of cosmetics formulation. Born of advanced microfluidic technology, CareSil's CES (CareSil Encapsulated Silicones) is the world's first and only surfactant-free, fully encapsulated silicone. CES creates transformative textures when applied to the skin and fast-forwards breakthroughs in skin care.

Call it hard science that's soft to the touch: tiny microcapsules of the most pristine silicone in skin care suspended in a transparent, irritant-free hydrophilic gel. CareSil's CES line wows users with a two-part application sensation: an immediate fresh and light feeling, followed by the premium touch of silicone as the capsules break on the skin.

The feeling is functional as well. By combining the refreshing touch of a water-based product with the long-lasting properties of silicone, CES has the potential to improve skin hydration and preserve the effectiveness of active ingredients in anti-aging serums and other advanced skin care products, all without the heavy feel of traditional silicones. Free of surfactants, CES can be used to formulate modern looking, crystal clear emulsions as well as products designed for sensitive skin types.

Getting to the future faster, for less

CareSil's CES also represents a huge breakthrough for R&D and manufacturing. In the past, developing a new skin care product with a silicone component meant starting from scratch with an entirely new emulsion. Today's future-minded cosmetic companies can simply introduce CES into existing formulations (post-add) to quickly develop new, high-end luxury products with both dramatically improved "feel" and better results for little added cost.

As production scales, CES creates even more time and cost savings: there's no pre-mix required, its low viscosity makes it easier to pump, and clean-up is simple because it's water compatible.

"People in this market thought that everything had already been invented, but this surfactant-free 'silicone in a capsule’ is truly new," says Michel Bassens, NuSil's Marketing & Sales Director, Skin Care. "We've created this perfect balance between water and silicone so cosmetics companies can accelerate development of an entirely new generation of high-end, water-based skin care products that their customers don't just ‘apply’ but ‘experience’. The possibilities are exciting, and endless."
