Silicones has been used in cosmetic and skincare products for over 50 years. The most widely used forms of silicone in beauty products, include dimethicone and cyclomethicone. When used in skincare products, silicone adds slip and makes it application of the product feel silkier on the skin. The unique structure of silicones, which are made up of large molecules with spaces in between, allows for it to sit on top of the skin and provide protection against skin moisture loss while never feeling greasy. Dimethicone is suitable for acne-prone and sensitive skin types, as it is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic.1
In addition, silicone is widely used to treat scars.
