A family of dimethicone copolyol waxes has been examined for use in personal
care formulation. Unlike most silicone fluids or gums, which are incompatible
with water and inorganic oils and waxes, these materials are water-soluble. In
formulations, they can be used to provide characteristics such as enhanced
foaming or humectancy. Toxicological tests of the materials demonstrate
acceptable profiles for personal care ingredients.
