Does Dimethicone clog pores and suffocate the skin?
Dimethicone is a non-greasy occlusive silicone based polymer that is a man-made synthetic molecule made up of repeating units called monomers. It also has been shown time and time again to be non-comedogenic, yet it provides a significant amount of emollience and coverage to the skin, without adding any heaviness.
Dimethicone is a perfect silky feeling ingredient to protect the skin barrier and prevent moisture loss while allowing the skin to breathe. Many skin care companies use dimethicone as it provides a smooth application by filling in uneven texture and fine lines, which helps create a smooth and flawless look in products like primers, foundations, and lotions. Some studies have found it to soothe and help improve chronic hand dermatitis, and to help reduce inflammation and irritation in rosacea clients.
