We have searched long and hard here at skinmade to find natural alternatives to Dimethicone and guess what? We did it. Nature has given us so many silky oils including Meadowfoam that allow creams to glide nicely on your skin, without blocking pores.
Ever noticed how moisturisers, conditioners, body lotions and primers feel silky and glide when you put them on? Well, that’s because of a synthetic polymer called dimethicone. Dimetha-what you say? Dimethacone. This is a molecule that is bigger than your skin’s pores so it sits on top of you skin like a plastic layer. So what is happening to your poor pores? They are blocked with a big fat molecule of dimethicone that stops your skin from breathing, sweating, regenerating and also stops any good, nourishing ingredients from getting in.
