ALBANY, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Momentive Performance Materials Inc., a leading global provider of silicones and advanced materials, focused on some of the fastest growing trends in personal care products with new additive technology exhibited at NYSCC Suppliers Day in Edison, New Jersey, May 15-16. These trends include enhanced color protection, as more and more consumers with different hair types are coloring their hair; advanced thermal protection, as the popularity of thermal hair styling continues to grow; more effective sun protection, with continued consumer concern over the harmful effects of ultraviolet light; and improved sustainability, with increasing consumer interest in products that have minimized or eliminated the use of such ingredients as parabens and ethylene oxide.

Momentives celebrated history of innovation in personal care technology traces back more than 25 years with the introduction of the first commercialized silicone for 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner in 1986. Since then, the company has helped many of the personal care industrys leading brands bring competitively differentiated products to market that address key consumer preferences in hair care, sun care, skin care and color cosmetics.

Over the years, the science behind feeling beautiful has grown increasingly complex, as the range of benefits offered to consumers has become more diversified and personal care products themselves becoming more versatile or more specialized, said David Cohon, Global Marketing Director, Personal Care, Momentive Performance Materials. At Momentive, our job is to help our customers continually create and feed consumer demand by providing additives that help their formulations do more. Its hard for consumers to see, but theres a lot of science that goes into helping them look and feel their best. And because these are consumer products, formulators want to work with companies they can trust companies, such as Momentive, that have been in the business for years and have the global bandwidth to develop and deliver products anywhere they are needed.
