Cetyl dimethicone copolyol

* Also known as cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 dimethicone or Abil EM90.

A silicone/siloxane that functions as an emulsifier, surfactant and delivery agent for other ingredients contained in a cosmetic formulation. It keeps the water and oil parts of an emulsion from separating, and possesses great trapping capacity that enables it to prolong the release of active molecules, particularly pigmented ones. It also conditions the skin, gives it a smooth and soft look and eliminates any tackiness. You may find this ingredient in various skin care and makeup products such as sunscreen, foundation, concealer, lipstick, facial moisturizer, blush, eye cream and anti-aging treatment.
