What Are Cyclomethicones?
Cyclomethicones are clear, odorless liquids utilized in skincare products to give your skincare that silky texture. Cyclomethicones are a type of silicone, so they help products to apply evenly and smoothly to your skin. There are several types of silicones used in skincare and cosmetic products. You may already be familiar with silicones, probably the one you are most acquainted with is dimethicone. Cyclomethicones have a similar function to dimethicone in that they help improve the texture of products, improve the appearance of scarring, improve the water-resistance of products, and emulsify the product. However, Cyclomethicones are also better at delivering active ingredients to the skin.
Cyclomethicone is an alcohol-free, clear, colorless,
odorless, silicone liquid used as a carrying and wetting agent for
personal care products. It can be used as-is as a body spray or used as a
replacement for petroleum based solvents because it will not contribute to
the ozone-depletion and global warming. Cyclomethicone is basically a
cosmetic solvent that is soluble with the vast majority of oil-soluble
products. It is possible that some fragrances are immiscible &
individual testing for compatibility is always recommended.
