At Aloderma, we believe in using the purest and most effective ingredients in our skincare products. That's why we use dimethicone, a silicone-based ingredient that has been shown to be safe and beneficial for all skin types.
What is Dimethicone?
Dimethicone is a type of silicone that is derived from sand and carbon. It is a clear, odorless, and non-greasy liquid that is commonly used in skincare products.
How Does Dimethicone Work?
When dimethicone is applied to the skin, it forms a thin, protective barrier. This barrier helps to keep the skin hydrated and protected from environmental irritants. Dimethicone also helps to smooth the skin's surface and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of Dimethicone for Skincare
- Hydration: Dimethicone is an effective occlusive ingredient, meaning that it helps to prevent water loss from the skin. This is especially beneficial for people with dry or sensitive skin.
- Protection: Dimethicone can help to protect the skin from environmental irritants such as wind, pollution, and cold weather.
- Texture: Dimethicone can help to smooth the skin's surface and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Makeup application: Dimethicone is often used in primers and foundations to help makeup apply smoothly and evenly.
Safety of Dimethicone
Dimethicone is considered to be a safe ingredient for skincare. It is non-comedogenic, meaning that it will not clog pores. Dimethicone is also hypoallergenic, meaning that it is less likely to cause allergic reactions.
