Silicone free skin care

Skintifique products do not contain silicone. They also do not contain many other ingredients. 

This reflects Skintifique’s “Radical Simplicity” approach which aims to eliminate every ingredient that is not important in order to protect the most sensitive skins. It is the scientific innovation that our products are based on, that allows their unrivaled efficacy. Also, all our products are eco-friendly, vegan, cruelty-free (no animal testing), hypoallergenic and tolerance tested.

Silicone in Cosmetics

What is silicone?

Silicones, also known as siloxanes, are 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
  • Dimethicone
  • Cyclomethicone
  • Dimethiconol
  • Dimethicone copolyol
  • Cyclopentasiloxane
  • Cyclohexasiloxane

Why is it used by other brands?

The main reason for using silicone 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…
