The Reasons Why Restorsea Products are Silicone Free #beauty #cosmetics

I have used Restoresea facial products products over the years and I know that Patti Pao, the CEO, puts her heart and soul into the business.  She cares about the ingredients that are in her products and about the people who use them.

I wanted to share a recent email that Patti sent out, with her permission, about why she chooses NOT to use silicone in her products.

These are her reasons:

1. Silicones trap debris in your pores.
Like plastic wrap, silicones form a barrier on top of your skin. That barrier can lock in moisture, yes, but it can also trap dirt, sweat, bacteria, sebum, dead skin cells and other debris along with it.
2. Silicones can cause acne and congestion.
Prolonged exposure to oil, dead skin and bacteria underneath the semi-occlusive seal of silicones can lead to increased breakouts. If you are acne-prone, I consider silicones among the most important ingredients to avoid.
3. Silicones can make your skin dull and dehydrated.
Silicones can prevent additional moisture from getting into the skin.  
4. Silicones interfere with cell renewal.
Our skin renews itself every 28 days, whereby old cells are sloughed off and new cells make their way up to the surface. Silicones inhibit this process by slowing down the production of new cells and keeping dead cells stuck longer.
5. Silicones deliver nothing beneficial to your skin.
When you use skincare products heavy in silicones, you're not actually hydrating or nourishing your skin, no matter what the label may claim—it's simply a short-term smoothing effect.
6. Silicones block other ingredients from absorbing.
If you are layering products, silicones can prevent them from doing their jobs properly.
7. Silicones can be difficult to remove.
The most common silicone, dimethicone, is extremely heavy and leaves a coating on the skin unless it is carefully removed. If you are using products formulated with silicones, I would suggest washing your face with the Reviving Cleanser. It will remove your silicone-based products safely without stripping your skin of its essential oils.

Do the products you use contain silicone?
