In recent years, the shampoo market has become popular with silicone oil free shampoos, and many articles have attacked the drawbacks of silicone oil. Therefore, many consumers now judge the quality of shampoo products by "whether the shampoo contains silicone oil." This judgment is clearly incorrect.

So, is silicone shampoo safe? Can we still use silicone shampoo?

In this paper, the composition and function of silicone oil are analyzed to answer these two questions.

There are many types of silicone oil, not just polydimethylsiloxane, which is short for silicon-containing compounds.

Because of its high stability, safety and wide use, the world's industries are constantly researching and developing its related components and expanding its application range.

For example, breast enhancement with silicone, is the use of very high viscosity polydimethylsiloxane; At the same time, silicone oil is also widely used in many of our skin care products. Makeup creams containing silicone oil can usually fill pores.

Silicone oil has been used in the cosmetics industry for decades, and the ingredients industry will never reject this ingredient as extremely safe in contact with skin. In order to meet the needs of consumers, cosmetics research and development is still in continuous innovation and development.

Therefore, the safety of silicone oil ingredients is obvious, and there is no harm to human skin.


Our hair is not our skin. It's more like leather shoes that need regular cleaning and maintenance, and silicone oil is an excellent ingredient to repair those shoes.

The structure of hair is divided into three layers: epidermis, cortex and medulla. The epidermis has hair scales like fish scales, which are very vulnerable to damage. Once the epidermis is damaged, the cortex will lose its protection.

Silicone oil is easy to spread, hydrophobic, low surface tension characteristics, can be attached to the surface of the hair, forming a layer of uniform film, play a role in protecting the hair.

Silicone oil also makes hair soft, smooth and easy to brush. Therefore, even if you are used to using non-silicone oil shampoo, it is best to use some silicone oil or other cationic conditioner to maintain hair, so as to extend the life of hair.

Through the above analysis, we can draw the conclusion that shampoo containing silicone oil is safe.

Because silicone oil has been widely used in cosmetics and personal care products, it has been proven to be an effective moisturizer and lubricant. Silicone oil in shampoo mainly plays a lubricating, smoothing and anti-static role, can make hair easier to comb and more smooth.

Silicone oil is commonly added to shampoo formulations, and its use is rigorously evaluated and regulated, with no adverse health effects. Silicone oil has been widely used for many years and has been proven to be a safe and effective ingredient that does not cause any harm to the human body.
