    WILTON, CONN., March 15 /CNW/ - Momentive Performance Materials
introduced its new product - Silsoft(*) E-Pearl emulsion, a new non-ionic,
silicone emulsion, at the (Personal Care Ingredient Asia) PCIA 2007 this week.
Silsoft E-Pearl emulsion is a multi-functional ingredient that provides
outstanding sensory, moist feel, line blurring and skin lightening benefits to
a wide array of personal care cosmetics products.

    Silsoft(*) E-Pearl emulsion is a milky white, non-ionic, patent pending
product made of Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Dimethicone and Cetearyl Methicone.
Silsoft E-Pearl emulsion is easy to use. It can be post-added directly to any
skin care finished product to deliver outstanding sensory benefits.

    Ms. Beatriz Blanco, Global Personal Care Marketing Manager, Momentive
Performance Materials, said, "This is another example of Momentive's
world-class silicones technology. This product's multi-functionality is the
result of the unique combination of its ingredients. Silsoft E-Pearl emulsion
enables the formulator to give outstanding sensory to skin care products with
high water content, even when the product contains more than 90% water"

    Silsoft(*) E-Pearl emulsion can be used in all kinds of cosmetic and
personal care products; from facial masks, toners, cleansers, to sunscreens,
body washers, foundations, and sun care products. Silsoft E-Pearl emulsion is
