What is Silicone Gel

❤ ❤ ❤

Generic Name: Silicone Gel
Brand Name: JIAHE WELL
English Name: Silicone Gel

Silicone Gel is a topical gel that can be applied to any part of the skin. The gel is safe, tolerable, and suitable for all skin types and populations. It improves the appearance of new and old scars, making them softer, flatter, and smoother, and reduces discoloration, pain, and itching caused by scars. It is certified by the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA). The main ingredients are Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Fumed Silica, and Dimethicone Crosspolymer.

Mechanism of Action of Silicone Gel

❤ ❤ ❤

The silicone gel formula includes liquid long-chain polymers and volatile solid silicone. The high molecular weight long-chain polymers form a semi-occlusive waterproof film that adheres closely to the epidermis. The volatile silicone gives the gel its quick-drying properties (drying immediately after application), and it does not cause skin damage or pain during use. This silicone gel film functions like a custom-made silicone sheet for the treated skin area, offering all the advantages of silicone sheets while avoiding their bulkiness, skin maceration, and inconvenience.
