The Dow Corning Difference

Innovative Skin Care Formulations and Solutions

Innovative ingredients for a difference you can feel

For more than 30 years, our application-tested and proven skin care solutions have helped beauty care companies create products with consumer appreciated sensory profiles and performance benefits—benefits that create a better skin care experience.

Whether for face and body, shower and bath, or men's grooming-consumers value the enhanced aesthetics, improved spreading and application, all-day wear-ability and the innovative textures of specialty silicones from Dow Corning.


Our silicones facilitate moisturization and emolliency for smoother, softer skin, and offer pleasing sensory benefits that include reduced tackiness and a non-greasy feel. Easy to apply and comfortable to wear, our skin care formulations can also meet the FDA Skin Protectant Monograph if containing at least 1 % of Dimethicone.


Dow Corning brand silicone containing formulations can offer a great combination of barrier protection, and moisturization to help restore and revitalize skin. Give consumers the benefits of the enhanced delivery of skin-repairing actives, wrinkle-masking ingredients, improved oil absorption and more, for skin that looks and feels invigorated.


Our specialty silicones can help refine skin texture and minimize imperfections—to create a more luminous, luxurious appearance. For face and body, silicones interact with light to help mask or even-out skin tones for smoother, healthier looking skin.
