Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer and Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer are flexible silicon polymers consisting of dimethicone copolymers that are linked together (crosslinked).
In cosmetics and personal care products, these ingredients are used in deodorants, makeup, and skin and hair care products.
In cosmetics and personal care products, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethicone Vinyl/Dimethicone Crosspolymer and Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer all function as viscosity increasing agents – nonaqueous. Dimethicone Crosspolymer also functions as a dispersing agent – nonsurfactant, an emulsion stabilizer and a hair fixative. In other words, it is used to adjust the thickness of liquid cosmetic products.
Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer is generally considered to be safe.
