Silicones are inert (non-reactive) compounds with a variety of forms and uses. Silicones are polymers that include silicone together with carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and sometimes other elements. Silica (silicone dioxide), is common in sandstone, beach sand, and similar natural materials, and is the initial material from which silicones are produced. It is believed that 25% of the earth's crust is made of silicon.
Silicones, and their varying forms, come in various thicknesses and grades. Silicone, and its other forms like dimethicone, are hypoallergenic, do not support microbial growth and have the ability to repel water making them ideal to add lubrication without breaking down or drying out. Pink utilizes a proprietary ,three molecule blend, of silicones (Dimethicone, Dimenthiconol, Cyclopentasiloxane) to ensure maximum safety and uses the highest quality sources to deliver the most natural and ideal texture. Pink's superior silicone lubrication is both extremely slick and thin, imparting the most natural feel, and is its differentiating factor from other similar products.
