World class silicones for worldwide solutions

Is crosspolymer bad for skin?

Dimethicone which is the main ingredient in a silicone crosspolymer is an approved skin protectant by the FDA. Silicone is an inert substance that has been safely used in cosmetics for over 70 years. Silicones are one of the very few actives used in wound, scar and even burn creams to form a protective barrier to prevent trans-epidermal water loss.

Silicones remove the unaesthetic properties of other materials (both natural and synthetic), add blurring and soft-focus properties, and enhance the delivery of actives to the skin. Silicones are clean and ethical, sustainable, gentle, degradable, and very effective at low concentrations.
