SeraSense® SFA 83 is a low viscosity dimethicone fluid blended with C13-15 Alkane; a silicone fluid alternative manufactured via fermentation of sugar cane. This product offers unique benefits for hair and skin products. It is ideal for use in hair serums as a diluent for SeraSense® GBA 81 or 82, where it offers anti-frizz properties, curl definition, improves the softness of hair, and does not leave a sticky residue. In skin creams and colour cosmetics, it gives excellent spreading and a soft, silky feel.
