Silicone materials have been subject to dozens of scientific studies showing that they are safe for human health. (When used for their intended purposes, as with all products.) D4, D5 and D6 are among the most extensively studied materials currently used in consumer and industrial applications and because of their versatility and safety profile, they are used to create hundreds of applications that improve people’s lives every day.
Risk evaluations have been conducted by regulatory agencies such as Health Canada, Australia Departments of Environment and Health, by UK regulatory bodies, and by expert scientific panels such as the Cosmetic Ingredient Review and the EU Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety. All of these risk assessments concluded that there is no risk to human health from silicone materials when used appropriately.
