Innovative formulations for effective skin care



A pleasantly dry feeling on the skin, spreadability and lubricity are key features for modern antiperspirants and deodorants. TERRA offers a wide range of cost-effective solutions for developing innovative recipes to produce antiperspirant and deodorant (underarm) products which meet today’s challenging consumer demands.


TERRAFLUID® silicone fluids and other performance enhancing silicone-based additives from TERRA offer a broad range of benefits for soft solid, rigid stick, clear gel, roll-on and aerosol formulations:


- reduced white residue

- reduced tackiness

- soft and dry feel

- fast drying

- moisturization

- quick absorption

- non-cooling

- improved salt suspension



The volatile silicones and dimethicones from TERRA are used as carriers or diluents for antiperspirants and deodorants. They enhance spreading and lubricating properties, evaporate quickly from the skin without cooling or stinging it, and leave it feeling pleasantly dry and smooth. They lubricate spray valves and roll-on applicators, ensure stick compositions spread smoothly, and prevent soaping and whitening during application.


Phenyl silicones from TERRA are used to adjust the refractive index of antiperspirants to provide transparency. Phenyl products also reduce stickiness in formulations that contains acrylic acid polymers. Oil-in-water and water-in-oil emulsions benefit from the use of alkoxy silicones, which provide a silky soft touch on the skin. Alkyl silicones and pyrogenic silicas provide rheology modification for enhanced application properties. Alkyl silicones imbue antiperspirants with uniform consistency, render the thixotropic properties stable to temperature changes and act as suspension agents for AP salts.
