Dimethicone is a common silicone compound used in skincare products. It provides moisturizing and softening effects while preventing moisture loss through evaporation.

As a synthetic chemical, Dimethicone is composed of polydimethylsiloxane. It has unique non-volatile and low surface tension properties, making it an ideal moisturizer.

Dimethicone forms a protective barrier on the skin, helping to lock in moisture and prevent evaporation. This barrier not only keeps the skin hydrated for a longer period but also contributes to softening and smoothing the skin. Due to its resistance to wash-off by water, Dimethicone is widely used in waterproof and moisture-resistant skincare products.


It’s important to note that everyone’s reaction to these ingredients may vary. It is recommended to perform a patch test on a small area of skin before using any new product to ensure there are no adverse reactions.
