  • Alternatives to 50 cSt Dimethicone to Achieve Similar Skin Feel?

    Posted by spadirect on February 15, 2019 at 8:57 pm

    What are alternative ingredients or combinations of ingredients (alternatives could be either silicone-containing or not silicone-containing) that together offer the same or similar skin feel characteristics of 50 cSt Dimethicone?

    In other words, how would you replace 50 cSt Dimethicone in an O/W skin product with other silicone-containing alternatives or with alternatives that are silicone-free in order to most closely approximate Dimethicone’s skin feel?

    I imagine that it might require an ingredient blend to most closely approximate 50 cSt Dimethicone’s characteristics.  I would greatly appreciate any suggestions, comments or discussion about 50 cSt Dimethicone replacements.

    Thanks!
