Dimethicone 100cst is a linear, non-reactive, and unmodified polydimethylsiloxane. It has a broad range of uses in personal care formulations as an emollient. It allows formulators to modify a product's spreadability and conditioning effects. It has the ability to reduce whitening affect and stickiness of cosmetic products, allowing skin feel to be optimized. Due to their flexible polymer backbone, dimethicones are highly permeable to gases (e.g. oxygen, water vapor), which allows respiration of the skin.

Vegan suitable.
