Siloxanes - Consumption, Toxicity and Alternatives


A study has been made on the use of siloxanes in Denmark. The consumption is 3,100 tonnes yearly in the production of e.g. sealants, cosmetics, paints and detergents. Knowledge about the effects on humans and the environment is scarce, but some of the siloxanes seem to be problematic. The study gives a short assessment of the alternatives to the use of siloxanes in cosmetics and detergents.
