Many thanks for the Silicone DM. This product is lovely quality; it is light, silky, and leaves no residue at all. I use it in the base recipe for a mouldable polymer that I then use to make a simulated 'Amber' for bead making. At the end of this process I have a silky, translucent polymer plus the most gorgeous hands in the studio ! My thanks again, Helen.. ...»

Carla, Many medications can be and are applied topically by prescription. With that in mind, realize that this particular ingredient is wonderful but understand that this is indeed one of those that may create sensitivity with those already using topical hormones or just use sparingly and see how you respond. Sorry for the very late response..... ...»

Im 45 years old; average looking skin for my age. Applied a small pea sized amount of Sea Kelp Bioferment to my face full strength in the am after washing my face of previous night makeup.; let face "dry". Then aplied my foundation as always. Noticed my thick, heavy foundation applied more easily and smooth. Keep in mind this is DAY TWO of me using this. TWO women at work ( separate departments) commented how wonderful my face looked!

I am following the moisturizing cream + Zinc dispersion recipe and I am extremely satisfied. I do allow for a little time for it to absorb in & then I dab off anything that I feel looks a little white - but that's because I initially use a fairly thick coating on myself. I use a bit of foundation at times on top and there are no issues as far as weird colors or texture issues. I am so grateful for this entire website as a one-stop-shop for such effective skin care products, and now we can.. ...»

Silicone gel DM

About Silicone gel DM in DIY Skin Care

Not only does Silicone gel DM help deliver instant sensory gratification, it also provides other important performance properties such as thickening in anhydrous formulations and in the oil phase of emulsions. It also acts as a carrier for fragrances in shower conditioners/shower body lotions to enhance fragrance deposition and longevity after the wash.

Silicone gel DM is a non-emulsifying silicone copolymer network dispersed in dimethicone that yields clear gels. With swollen silicone particles of about 40 microns, Silicone gel DM is perceived as silky, with a cushioning effect. The material spreads readily during application and provides a long-lasting, silky feel without residue.

Silicone gel DM is very versatile, with applicability for moisturizing and anti-aging creams and lotions, color cosmetics, sunscreens, and shaving products. The performance properties of Silicone gel DM make it a preferred product for skin care wash-off conditioners.

In addition to providing a unique sensory experience, both during and after use, Silicone gel DM acts as a carrier for fragrances to enhance fragrance deposition and longevity after the wash. Gel-silicone can also be formulated in a wide range of hair care products such as rinse-off and leave-on conditioners.

Silicone gel DM is easy to incorporate into formulations and is compatible with most commonly used cosmetic ingredients. It is stable across a broad pH range, enabling formation of products with high or low pH.

Other benefits of the Silicone gel DM include effective thickening for anhydrous formulations and the oil phase of emulsions, and the ability to be cold-processed for increased manufacturing efficiency.
