Dimethicone 100 are light silicone oils with different viscosities. Dimethicone 100, like most silicones used in personal care products, creates a hydrophobic protective film on the skin. Dimethicone 100 is preferred in order to facilitate the lubrication and spread of creams, lotions and bath products on the skin. It reduces the saponification appearance and stickiness that may occur during the spreading of products such as creams on the skin and provides lubrication and softness.
It’s mainly used in cosmetic products such as hair care products, skin care and make up products.
