  • EPITEX 66 Polymer is a new technology for improving the water resistance of sunscreens without impacting formulation aesthetics.
  • This innovative emulsion is easy to process into formulations for lotions, creams and sunscreens.


Dow Personal Care, a business of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW) introduces EPITEX™ 66 Polymer to meet the market demand for water resistant sunscreens that offer good skin feel. EPITEX 66 Polymer is an emulsion that combines excellent water resistance with more pleasing skin aesthetics, as compared to conventional water resistance technologies.


EPITEX™ 66 Polymer advances long
lasting water resistance for sun
care and skin care products.

"As consumers continue to purchase the latest sunscreen products that provide water resistance, we believe EPITEX 66 Polymer offers brand owners with an exciting opportunity to advance their formulations," states Fabienne Bizeray, European product marketing manager, Dow Personal Care. "EPITEX 66 Polymer can address a fundamental issue that plagues formulators - how their products feel when applied. This polymer facilitates improved water resistance performance and helps improve the feel of the product on the skin, with less tackiness."

EPITEX 66 Polymer was designed to address low tack to improve the feel on skin when the personal care product is applied. Formulations containing EPITEX 66 Polymer can also incorporate UCON™ Fluid AP, a chemistry that offers a remarkably soft, smooth emollient feeling, to help further enhance the product's skin feel.

To learn more about EPITEX™ 66 Polymer, please visit Dow Personal Care booth #Y30 at In-Cosmetics Europe, April 17-19, 2012, in Barcelona, Spain, or by visiting www.dowpersonalcare.com .
