Silicones as skin conditioners
Just for fun I decided to make a luxury body shampoo using mainly Ecocert surfactants. (Plantapon LGC Sorb, Dehyton G, CAPB). For the luxury aspect I added 1% of Silsense DW-18 (dimethicone copolyol ester, a water-dispersible silicone). The results surprised me in that I seem to be getting skin conditioning effects (wrinkle reduction, smoothness improved). It is specified for skin use, but what I want to know is, for daily use in the shower is there any concern with buildup in the skin, anything like that?
