Where we will discuss our silicone elastomer technology, presenting one of the PURESIL™ brand lines that meet market trends and consumer needs, our award-winning PURESIL™ ORG series, elastomers with different properties and loaded with alkane derived from sugarcane -sugar and with high-level of naturalness.

Elkem is committed to reducing our environmental impact and supporting the growing demand for eco-friendly, high-performance beauty products by continually expanding our range of sustainable ingredient offerings. Its award-winning PURESIL™ ORG series has expanded with the newest product launch of PURESIL™ ORG 03, a proprietary elastomer loaded in a green alkane. The bio-based alkane is derived from sustainably sourced sugar cane. Sugarcane is a fast-growing crop that requires minimal land use and irrigation, while the low-energy fermentation process and electrical cogeneration using sugarcane bagasse further lower the carbon footprint. PURESIL™ ORG 03 offers sensory and functional benefits for skin and hair, in addition to enabling the creation of differentiated textures. PURESIL™ ORG 03 has a high naturalness index of 0.8 measured by ISO 16128.

Elkem is one of the world's leading vertically integrated silicone producers and a long-standing supplier of silicone ingredients to the personal care market. With manufacturing and R&D centers in France, China, Spain, South Korea, Brazil and the United States. It recently expanded its portfolio to include advanced PURESIL™ branded ingredients along with the already trusted MIRASIL™ brand. This selection of ingredients with different technologies, benefits, and attributes will help our customers to bring innovation to the market and their consumers around the world.
