Overview: Andisil® Dimethicone

Andisil® Dimethicones for personal care are non-reactive polydimethyl siloxanes. Linear Siloxanes in hair care provide water resistance and improved spreading of actives without weighing the hair down, even at high molecular weights due to the low surface tension of silicones.
