OptiBlur™ Elastomer
CAS No:
Mixture

OptiBlur™ Elastomer is a viscous, high molecular weight combination of dimethicone, beeswax, and cosmetic powders designed to create luxurious products that include optical blurring and soft focus properties, such as color cosmetics, facial products, and moisturizers with a unique velvety texture and matte finish.

Its optical blurring properties help to mask fine lines and wrinkles, minimize the appearance ofpores, and offer a matte finish with a smooth, silky skin feel. It’s ideal for anhydrous or emulsified products, such as foundations, concealers, lip sticks, primers, serums, and moisturizers offering imperfection masking properties. For all skin types, it offers sebum control while moisturizing without oils.

OptiBlur™ Elastomer offers a lubricious skin feel that moisturizes without a feeling of greasiness. In use, it has a feel described as “silky’, “smooth”, or “dry” with a “ball bearing” effect attributed to the inclusion of silicone elastomer spheres coated by silica.

Key Benefits

  • Smooth, velvety feeling in anhydrous and water containing products
  • Designed for “soft focus” beauty products and primers
  • “Imperfection” masking
  • Masks fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimizes the appearance of pores
  • Offers a matte finish to products
  • High viscosity that can be thinned with silicones for primers
  • Can be processed warm or cold
  • Increases viscosity (non-aqueous)
  • Absorbs or controls sebum

Applications

  • Ideal for facial products where imperfection masking or a “hi-def” filter-like finish is desired
  • Color cosmetics, such as BB creams and contouring sticks as well as foundations and lip products
  • Optical blurring and “soft focus” beauty products
  • Primers
  • Facial care products - anhydrous or emulsion
  • Oil-in-water emulsions
  • Water-in-silicone emulsions
  • Water-in-oil emulsions
  • Anhydrous products

Formulating Guidelines

  • OptiBlur™ Elastomer can be subjected to heat for a short period of time at no more than 60°C (140°F) to prevent the beeswax from melting.
  • As it contains volatile dimethicone fluids, process in a closed container if the temperature reaches or exceeds 60°C (140°F).
  • In the oil phase, ensure it is mixed well to ensure homogeneity.
  • In emulsions, ensure the product has sufficient viscosity to allow it to be dispersed adequately.
  • This elastomer can be thinned down by adding fluid dimethicone or cyclomethicone to the solubility level noted below.
  • It can be mixed using high shear stick blenders or homogenizers, or low shear hand mixers or blending by hand.

Solubility

  • 20% OptiBlur™ Elastomer is miscible with 80% caprylic/capric triglycerides, isododecane, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, cyclomethicone, or phenyltrimethicone
  • 80% OptiBlur™ Elastomer is miscible with 20% phenyltrimethicone or cyclomethicone, but will separate with 20% caprylic/capric triglycerides, isododecane, or C12-15 alkyl benzoate.
  • It is soluble with natural oils, but should be tested in small batches to ensure homogeneity.

I LOVE Lotioncrafter! First of all you have the ingredients that I need and information on all of those ingredients. Second of all, even though your facility is a LONG way from me in Texas, my order is processed and shipped so fast that I can get my things faster than I can get them from other companies that are much closer to me. I love the rectangular shaped bottles that are used for packaging the ingredients because that shape maximizes my limited storage space. Great quality and great service! Thank you!
Pat Tyson, (Pitterpat Skincare, LLC)

I love this company.Not only do they have a great selection, great prices and very reasonable and fast shipping. They gave me a price adjustment that I don't even know I had coming ! Not only did they adjust the price of the item, but they adjusted the shipping charges as well, AFTER I had already received the product ! If lotioncrafter had soaping supplies, I wouldn't go anywhere else. This company has Integrity. Love lotioncrafters !
Margaret Sperandeo, (Savin Rock Soaps)

Lotioncrafter, you are THE MOST PROFESSIONAL, serious, and dependable company I have ever encountered! Your information is correct, scientific, and to the point. You deliver quickly and reliably.
I have ordered too many times from you - only because for me, it has been a learning curve as I research all the actives to slow aging and improve skin!

Thank you!
Margaret Nuovo

I have been buying products from lotioncrafter since 2012 (I think? maybe longer?).

Why?

Because they run a fantastic business, one.

Two, because they are some of the friendliest people in the cosmetic supply business.

Three, because they sell everything at a fair price, which is important when you are sourcing things for a boutique beauty brand like mine.

Four, because they have things I cannot get in small quantities anywhere else.

They are friendly, efficient, sell ethical products and just run a great business. I'm proud to be a customer, I'm glad they are one of my suppliers, and I don't forsee that changing anytime soon. Thanks for being awesome, LotionCrafter!
