Dimethicone is a silicone that builds up the skin’s hydration. Beyond it’s moisturizing benefits, it also helps to produce a silky texture in the goods that it’s formulated in.
Benefits: Dimethicone is an emollient ingredient that prevents moisture loss. Moisturization is dimethicone’s biggest benefit!
Skin Types: Silicones may increase the penetration of potentially comedogenic (pore-clogging) ingredients, thereby leading to the development of acne. So, acne prone and oily skin may want to steer clear of silicones like dimethicone.
