Dimethicone vs. Bamboo Ferment and Irish Moss
The chemical ingredient: Dimethicone
Explanation: "Dimethicone is a synthetic silicon that is used for texture. It gives products a smooth spreadability, can form a protective barrier on the skin, and fill in the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The barrier that it forms can actually trap bacteria and dry skin out over time. It's restricted in Canada for its health and environmental impacts."
The natural option: Bamboo ferment and Irish moss
Why it works: "Both bamboo ferment and Irish moss provide deep hydration for smooth and silky-feeling skin, and form a protective film to prevent moisture loss."
