Silicones (common INCI of Dimethicone) impart premium performance to personal care products. Dimethicones often contain trace amounts of cyclomethicones (cyclics), the typical starting molecules for silicone production. Regulatory pressures on cyclics have resulted in concerns for formulators. Processes exist for reducing cyclics well below the requisite limits with traditional sparging and wipe film evaporators. Siltech alternatively offers new Methicone structures that are completely absent cyclics, yet offer traditional and even improved benefits of silicones for personal care.
