Research shows dimethicone is safe for you and the environment.
At COOLA, we are obsessive about what goes into our products. We're even MORE concerned with what we keep out. We follow a strictly restricted ingredient list that goes beyond industry standards to exclude over 1,000 questionable or harmful ingredients from all of our formulations.
While we stay away from cyclical silicones, there are some that are beneficial--like dimethicone.
Dimethicone is a silicone commonly used in skincare and has been reviewed over and over again by regulatory agencies around the world. Research into dimethicone shows that it is safe for you and the environment, and it may even benefit your skin in many ways.
This silicone helps:
- Improve the texture of skincare and cosmetic products.
- Fill fine lines and wrinkles, helping the skin to appear smoother.
- Prevent moisture loss from the top layers of the skin.
It is also classified as non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic, meaning that it doesn’t clog the pore or worsen acne.
