Abstract Soft, creamy translucent and transparent gels suitable for use in cosmetic applications may be prepared by hydrosilylating an unsaturated MQ resin or its equivalent with an Si-H functional organopolysiloxane cross-linker having Si-H functionality along its polysiloxane backbone, in the presence of a low viscosity and preferably volatile organopolysiloxanes. The stable gels obtained may be converted to creamy gels of a wide range of consistency by simple shearing. Gel firmness can be maintained through addition of a catalyst inhibitor to the gel formulation.
