Silicone chemicals in cosmetics applications and their implications to the environment, health and sustainability

Abstract
Silicone chemicals exhibit unique surface as well as bulk properties that make them highly desirable for cosmetic applications. These include chemical inertness, biocompatibility, lubricity, comfort feel, slippery feel, compatibility with various formulations, hydrophobicity, hydrophilicity, broad synthetic molecular design options, and unique ability to combine several properties into one single molecule. These properties are possible due to unique molecular characteristics such as low surface energy, flexible bonds, high bond energy; high thermally stability. In recent times, these characteristics are becoming more relevant when viewed from the standpoint of environmental compatibility and overall sustainability.
