Are you familiar with the application of medium viscosity dimethyl silicone oil in cream, the application of high viscosity and ultra-high viscosity dimethyl silicone oil in hair washing and conditioner, and the application of low viscosity dimethyl silicone oil in cosmetics and skin care formula?
Generally, we will choose different cosmetics due to different skin properties and seasons. The moisturizing and hydrating products are more suitable for people with dry skin or autumn and winter seasons, while products in refreshing texture type are more suitable for people with oily skin or hot summer. According to the different market demand, the formulator will also make different viscosity products. When developing fresh skin feeling products, low viscosity dimethyl silicone oil has become the priority of the formulator.
In fact, with the increase of polymerization degree, the viscosity of dimethylsilicone oil will also increase. Low viscosity dimethyl silicone oil generally includes 5, 10 and 20 CST. Compared with the conventional medium viscosity dimethylsilicone oil (50, 100, 200, 350, 500, 1000 CST), the low viscosity dimethyl silicone oil has a lower viscosity, which makes the skin feel more fresh. The refreshing and non greasy skin care products and hair care products we usually use are low viscosity dimethyl silicone oil.
In addition to the advantages of skin feeling, low viscosity dimethyl silicone oil will also be more convenient in the formulation process, which is due to the compatibility advantages brought by low viscosity. Experiments show that the low viscosity dimethylsilicone oil can be perfectly compatible with the commonly used 26# and 15# white oil, thus avoiding the emulsification problem caused by the conventional medium viscosity dimethylsilicone oil. With excellent compatibility, light skin feeling and excellent solubility for a variety of common oils, low viscosity dimethyl silicone oil can be applied to oil in water, water in oil and all oil system. It is a universal oil for skin care and hair care, which is also worthy of the name!
