Dimethyl polysiloxane and dimethyl silicone are two of the most common anti-foaming agents.
Comments: The combination of white cross-linked dimethyl polysiloxane elastomer powder and lauroyl lysine improves flow and reduces agglomeration, providing superior handling ease; allows creation of innovative textures; has good compaction properties; high sebum absorption profile.
