Dimethicone in Cosmetics

What is Dimethicone?

Dimethicone, a form of silicone, is a kind of hybrid between synthetic rubbers and synthetic plastic polymers. Silicones are used in cosmetics and various personal care products to make them soft and smooth.

Other common names:

  • Methicone
  • Phenyl trimethicone
  • Silicone
  • Cyclomethicone
  • Dimethiconol
  • Dimethicone copolyol
  • Cyclopentasiloxane
  • Cyclohexasiloxane

Why is it used by other brands?

The main reasons for using dimethicone in cosmetics are:

  • It creates an occlusive layer on the skin (like plastic) thereby limiting water evaporation.
  • It makes your skincare products feel silky, smooth and easy to apply without the oily film on your skin.
  • It resists heating and UV lights

Why we do not use it

  • Our product provides superior moisturizing thanks to the technologies they are based on that do not require an occlusive layer on the skin.
  • It’s not great for health: It’s occlusive and prevents the skin from breathing. 
  • It’s not great for the environment: it takes around 400 years to biodegrade…
