ALT TREATMENT is based on alkoxysilane, is one of the staple silicone surface treatments used in the cosmetics industry. “Silane” surface treated pigments and mineral fillers provide cosmetic chemists with value-added performance at a relatively low cost. In liquid foundations and CC creams, they provide strong and vivid colors, excellent skin adhesion, and a silky soft feel. Silane surface treated TiO2 and ZnO sunscreens typically exhibit higher SPF and transparency due to lower agglomeration and ease of dispersibility into the oil phase.
