Silkflo® products are clear, colorless, odorless, non-volatile, high purity hydrocarbon liquids. Structurally, Silkflo® products are fully hydrogenated oligomers of 1-decene. The unique, non-oily feel of the Silkflo® products sets them apart from mineral oil and other oils, esters and hydrocarbons used in the cosmetic and personal care market.
