Dimethiconol and its esters and reaction products are used in cosmetics as either skin-conditioning agents or hair-conditioning agents. The Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) Expert Panel reviewed relevant data and concluded that these ingredients are safe in the present practices of use and concentration described in this safety assessment. While there is an absence of data on reproductive and developmental toxicity and limited tumorigenicity and toxicokinetics data, the Panel reasoned that these ingredients would not be absorbed through the skin, obviating concern over potential reproductive and developmental toxicity or carcinogenicity.
