High-performing and luxurious personal care products can be created thanks to silicones’ versatility and unique properties. Silicones can be found in a wide range of products, from anti-aging face cream to make-up to deodorant. They offer hair care product manufacturers a set of different products with diverse and unique properties. They are effective in products such as shampoos and conditioners. Hair care product manufacturers can chose from a variety of silicones products the one that delivers the properties wanted. For example, silicones can create a protective layer that does not interfere with the hair structure and can easily be washed out and they help to deliver shine, volume, frizz-control and protection, for treated or damaged hair. Hair care products containing silicones allow consumers with all types of hair to partake in fashion-forward styling trends. Key attributes that, for example, curly and/or fragile hair can obtain are soft feel, conditioning effects and shine.
Silicones in sunscreens improves spreadability, so that the skin is evenly protected. Because silicones aid in dispersing the active ingredients in sunscreen, they actually help raise the SPF of sunscreens.
Silicones in shampoos and conditioners give a long-lasting soft feel and shine. They also protect treated or damaged hair from heat and pollution. In color-treated hair, silicones may reduce color fading. Silicones in hair products can also perform as an anti-frizz agent.
Silicones are found in antiperspirants and deodorants. They leave no white-residue, reduce tackiness and do not stain your clothes.
Silicones improve moisturization and leave the skin feeling soft and smooth. Silicone-based moisturizers are ideal for those with oily or sensitive skin as they are nonreactive, oil-free and act as a barrier against irritation.
Silicones improve lip stick formulas by making them longer-lasting with added moisturization. Used in mascara, silicones plump and add volume to your lashes.
