What Is Silicone?
Silicones are synthetic ingredients that are used in cosmetics for their conditioning benefits/unique sensorial properties, and include Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Phenyl Trimethicone, Amodimethicone and Cyclomethicone. To identify silicones when looking at ingredient lists, simply look for words that end in –cone, –conol, –silane or –siloxane. At Origins, we use silicones, including Dimethicone, in select formulas to help condition skin and enhance how products feel on your skin. Silicones, like all ingredients we use, have been evaluated for safety. We do not use any silicones that are restricted by regulation, like D4. We continue to explore and use alternative ingredients that will allow us to provide you with the same wonderful benefits with better biodegradability.
