Silicone polymers and cyclic siloxanes are used in this sector as solvents and carriers for many products. In the personal care product sector, they are used in:

  • Deodorants
  • Hair, skin, and sun care products
  • Makeup

They provide a glossy, silky, or “smooth” feel as well as other processing benefits, which include transparency, lack of taste or odor, rapid evaporation from skin, and low skin irritability.
