What is silicone?

Most if not all of these type products are made from Silica gel.Silicon dioxide (SiO2), also known as silica, is a natural compound consisting of two of the most abundant materials on Earth: silicon (Si) and oxygen (O2). The crust of the earth is 59% silica. It makes up over 95 percent of the planet's known rocks. It's silicon dioxide in the form of sand that gets between your toes when you're sitting on a beach.It is even naturally found in the human body's tissues. While it is unclear what role it plays, it is believed that our bodies need an essential nutrient. And just in case you are asking Silicon dioxide has been recognized as a safe food additive by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). But the European Food Safety Authority urged the European Union in 2018 to impose more stringent silicon dioxide guidelines until further research can be done. Their concerns centered on particles of nano size particles. However they are concerned with consumption of the product. This article focus on external use as a brush. But feel free to read more by visiting the articles listed above. The primary benefit of using silicone is that it's soft and flexible. It's has just the right amount of stiffness to exfoliate your scalp but not damage your skin.
