Polydimethylsiloxane uses in cosmetics
In addition to direct use, polydimethylsiloxane can be used in solution type, lipid or emulsion type in order to disperse methyl silicone oil, facilitate impregnation, spray coating, and improve efficiency. The product and the derivative are high-quality raw materials for cosmetics, have good skin care function, belong to synthetic oil in cosmetic raw materials, have lubricating property, anti-ultraviolet effect, good gas permeability, and have an obvious dustproof function. Because polydimethylsiloxane has good softness properties, it is commonly used in moisturizing products in skin care products and is also used in some high-end skin care products. This product is non-toxic, non-irritating to the skin and mucous membranes, but irritating to the eyes, generally recognized as safe.
