Overview

Polymethylsilsesquioxane is a type of spherical texturizing powder. This ingredient is available in a wide range of sizes and work based on a ball-bearing effect, in which the tiny microspheres roll around on the skin and create lubricity. Polymethylsilsequioxane offers extra slip to skincare products, such as lotions and powder-based products.

It also makes the skin feel soft and smooth, and it can even contribute to a soft focus effect to blur blemishes and skin abnormalities.
