Personal Care

cosmetics-face

We’re not making just another pretty face. We’re transforming lives.

The use of POSS® in personal care formulations is a new and safe way to achieve hydration, transfer resistance, durability and supple textures, without the inconvenience of formulation complexity. Qualities include:

Non-toxicity
POSS® has been demonstrated to be non-toxic, and cytocompatible.  In the EU, several POSS® Molecular Silicas® are R22 rated “not harmful if swallowed.”  POSS® has been used in dentistry and food packaging for over 10 years.

New Opportunities
POSS® provides a means to create synergies between key ingredients to simplify formulations and create new performance effects.

Wound Healing
Several POSS® compounds actively fight microorganisms and have shown excellent wound closure, low migration and strong adhesion to skin and hair.

Tissue Regeneration
Tissue scaffolds containing POSS® support cell binding, viability and proliferation, potentially eliminating the need for less compatible materials commonly used to augment or replace artificial human tissue. POSS® currently forms a key component in synthetic tear ducts, blood vessels, ears, heart valves, noses and tracheas.

Hybrid specializes in co-innovation with clients, and exclusivity of supply. Strict confidentiality is maintained through bilateral nondisclosure and supply agreements. Our goal is to set new industrial performance and manufacturing standards through innovation and collaboration with customers. Please contact us to discuss your needs and interests.
