Silica Dimethyl Silylate

* A suspending agent

Functions:

Silica Dimethyl Silylate is a silica derivative used in cosmetics and personal care products as an anticaking agent, bulking agent, slip modifier, viscosity increasing agent, emollient, and most often as a suspending agent, according to Silicone Specialties (with the Danish Environmental Protection Agencies) and CosmeticsCop.com. It is often found in cosmetics and lip products because of its ability to thicken while moisturizing, and provide long-lasting wear.

Safety Measures/Side Effects:

The Cosmetics Database finds Silica Dimethyl Silylate to be 100% safe for use in cosmetics and beauty products. However, because this ingredient is a Silica derivative, users should still be aware of the potential hazards associated with Silica, which is ultimately determined to be a safe ingredient as well when used in its amorphous form (as it is in cosmetic formulations).
