Momentive Introduces Conditioning Agent for Lasting Hair Restoration

Silsoft* CLX-E conditioning agent helps rejuvenate damaged hair

WATERFORD, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Momentive Performance Materials Inc. (Momentive) (OTCQX: MPMQ) will
globally launch Silsoft
CLX-E conditioning agent
at in-cosmetics Paris April 12-14th.
This multi-functional additive can offer hair care formulators the
ability to create products that provide durable conditioning, reduced
frizz and protection for hair from heat styling.

Hair becomes damaged and hydrophilic when it is exposed to aggressors
such as sunlight, mechanical stress, chemical treatments or heat.
Silsoft CLX-E conditioning agent is a cross-linkable silicone with an
[AB]n structure that can help restore damaged hair to its original
hydrophobic state. Studies have shown that when dried, hair treated with
products containing Silsoft CLX-E conditioning agent behaved similarly
to undamaged hair, resulting in improved manageability along with a
soft, radiant appearance with durable effects. Silsoft CLX-E
conditioning agent can provide these benefits through products such as
leave-on and rinse-off conditioners, shampoos, serums, pre-treatments
and sprays.

“We are continually developing materials that are easy to use and allow
our customers to differentiate their products,” said Beatriz Blanco,
Senior Business Director. “Low levels of Silsoft CLX-E conditioning
agent can help restore hair to an undamaged state, eliminate frizz and
provide thermal protection. It is also a durable straightening aid, and
can help maintain hair straightening even through 10 washes.”

Dr. Anne Dussaud will introduce Silsoft CLX-E conditioning agent in her
presentation “Cross-linkable Silicone for Durable Hair Restoration”
at 9:40 AM on Wednesday, April 13th, in Theater 2.
