The use of silicone oil in daily life

May 20, 2018

     The shampoos we use in our daily lives are many brands, but the basic ingredients of shampoos are the same mainly active agents, emulsified silicone oils and organic acids. Emulsified silicone oils in shampoo formulations, also known as silicone oils, are also known as chemical name polydimethylsiloxane emulsions.

     Emulsified silicone oil products have been widely used in hand creams, shaving creams, conditioners, shampoos, bath detergents, creams and other cosmetic products. It embodies the suppleness, smoothness and nourishment of the emulsified silicone oil in hair care products. It has excellent performance, excellent conditioning effect on the hair, and soft and elegant hair. The emulsified silicone oil has good air permeability, produces sustained release and flavoring effects on flavors and fragrances, can prolong the period of fragrance preservation, and has good complementarity with other components in cosmetics, which helps them to perform better.

    The primary function of shampoo is to wash your hair. The dirt on the scalp and hair is mainly grease and dust, so the surfactant is an essential ingredient of the shampoo. There are many types of surfactants. Polydimethylsiloxane emulsions, lauryl polyoxyethylene sulfates, and the like are commonly used in shampoos. Due to individual differences in the consumer, different hair types should be selected from different emulsified silicone oil shampoo products. We recommend that the viscosity of emulsified silicone oils should range from 600,000 to 1,000,000 centipoise depending on the hair quality. If the viscosity reaches 1 million cps of polydimethylsiloxane emulsion, the polydimethylsiloxane content should be in the range of 58% to 61%.

     In many shampoo advertisements, the model's hair is soft and supple to a staggering degree, which is actually the result of emulsifying silicone oil. As early as the 1950s, silicone oils have been used in cosmetics.  Many well-known shampoos on the market today have chosen silicone oils as moisturizers to improve hair quality. The share of silicone emulsion shampoo products in the shampoo market has been steadily increasing. Silicone oils, such as silicone emulsion products, have been recognized by consumers because they are very hydrophobic and can be easily dried after use. Polydimethylsiloxane has been scientifically proven to be colorless, odorless, and non-irritating. It has good moisturizing and smoothing effects and is harmless to body health. At the same time, polydimethylsiloxane fluid is No volatile. The quality of emulsified silicone oil produced by Qingdao Xingye Silicone New Material Co., Ltd. is stable, and the emulsifier content is appropriate. Because it produces no benzene products in the biodegradation process, it is in full compliance with the international environmental protection requirements of various countries in the world, and it is a highly qualified
