What is Dimethiconol?
Dimethiconol is a form of silicone that is commonly used in a variety of skincare and hair care products. This synthetic ingredient may help support smoother textures and smoother applications of various hair care, cosmetics, and skincare. This silicone can also help prevent moisture loss from the skin and is commonly called silicone gum. Dimethiconol acts as a polymer that improves the texture and spreadability of skincare and other cosmetic products. It acts as a moisturizer to help increase hydration while preventing moisture loss. This ingredient is good for all skin types unless you have a specific silicone allergy.
This ingredient helps improves the feel, performance, and appearance of certain skincare and cosmetic products. It makes the product feel smooth and silky on the skin and also helps the product apply more evenly. Using products that contain silicones may help reduce skin redness and irritation. That's thanks to the low surface tension that enables the ingredients to spread more easily across the skin while creating a protective coating. It also helps retain moisture in the skin to help give the skin a smooth, plump appearance.
