Dimethicone Crosspolymer
Est. %26.2

A group of ingredients that are typically added to skincare products to adjust the formula. Dimethicone Crosspolymers stabilize a formula, regulate its thickness and consistency and give the product a velvety feel.
Cyclohexasiloxane
Est. %13.1

C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate
Est. %7.2

A synthetic emollient ester. It works to improve the appearance of the skin by filling in the microcracks on the surface, thereby making the skin appear softer and smoother. It imparts a lightweight, velvety feel.
Tribehenin
