What products have dimethicone?

When it comes to skincare, the ingredient list can seem overwhelming. With so many products out there promising different results, it can be challenging to figure out what each ingredient does and whether or not it’s right for your skin.

One such ingredient that has gained popularity in recent years is dimethicone. But what is dimethicone, and which products contain this elusive substance? Fear not; we’ve got all the answers you need!

What Is Dimethicone?

Before diving into which products contain dimethicone, let’s first understand what exactly this substance is.

Dimethicone is a silicone-based polymer commonly used as an emollient in skincare products. It forms a protective barrier on the skin’s surface while also preventing moisture loss. This makes it an attractive option for individuals with dry or sensitive skin.

Now that we know what dimethicone is let’s explore some common product categories where you’ll find its use:

Makeup lovers rejoice! You’ll likely come across many makeup items containing our star ingredient: dimthicone.

  • Foundations
  • BB Creams
  • CC Creams
  • Primers

Foundations are notorious culprits of clogging pores because they sit heavily on top of the skin. However, those with a higher concentration of dimethicone will have much lighter formulas due to silicone’s weightlessness – perfect for everyday wear!

If long-lasting foundation/primers sound like something up your alley (no one likes re-touching their makeup throughout the day!), then try these high-dimeticone based options:

What about concealers? You may ask. Pun intended, concealer products contain many mysterious ingredients, including dimethicone. Just some examples are:

  • NYX Professional Makeup Gotcha Covered Concealer
  • loreál Infallible Pro Longwear Concealor

Silky-smooth and shiny hair is just as attractive and essential as well-hydrated skin! Your shampoo/conditioner/hair serum might have formulated with an ingredient considered a sister to silicone: Cyclomethicon­e.

Some commonly known dimethicone/cyclometicone-based haircare brands include:
