Sodium silicate is a colorless, odorless, transparent, viscous chemical substance with high chemical and thermal stability and plays an important role in skin care products. This article will elaborate on the application of sodium silicate in skin care products.


Basic properties of sodium silicate

Sodium silicate is an inorganic salt with a molecular formula of Na2SiO3 and a molecular weight of 122.04. The substance dissolves readily in water, resulting in an alkaline solution and insoluble in ethanol and other organic solvents. Sodium silicate is not easily decomposed at room temperature and does not deteriorate easily when heated to high temperatures, so it is a relatively stable chemical substance.

The role of sodium silicate in skin care products

Moisturizing effect

Sodium silicate is a good moisturizer, which can effectively retain the moisture of the skin and keep the skin moist and smooth. This is because the molecular structure of sodium silicate contains a silicon-oxygen bond, which can combine with the moisture on the skin surface to form a protective film to prevent moisture from evaporating, thus playing a moisturizing role.

Anti-sensitivity effect

Sodium silicate can reduce skin irritation caused by irritating ingredients in cosmetics, thus playing an anti-allergic role. This is because sodium silicate can combine with metal ions in cosmetics to reduce irritation to the skin. At the same time, it can also reduce irritation to the skin from spices, alcohol and other irritating ingredients in cosmetics.


Sodium silicate has good adhesion properties and can increase the adhesion of cosmetics on the skin surface, thus providing a better moisturizing effect. At the same time, sodium silicate can also be used as a thickener for cosmetics such as ointments and facial masks to increase their consistency, making the cosmetics easier to use and clean.

Anti-aging effect

Sodium silicate can increase the skin's elasticity and gloss and promote collagen synthesis, thus playing an anti-aging role. In addition, sodium silicate can also prevent ultraviolet rays from damaging the skin, thereby reducing the degree of skin aging.

Antibacterial effect

Sodium silicate has a certain antibacterial effect and has the ability to efficiently suppress the proliferation and multiplication of bacteria on the skin surface, thus playing an antibacterial role. This is important in preventing skin infections and inflammation.


Precautions for using sodium silicate in skin care products

Pay attention to the usage concentration: When using skin care products containing sodium silicate, you must use the appropriate amount according to your skin type and product concentration. Generally speaking, the concentration of sodium silicate should be between 1% and 5%. If the concentration is too high, it may cause skin allergies or acne.

Note how to use: When using skin care products containing sodium silicate, shake it well first, then pour it onto a cotton pad or your hands and apply it gently on your face. At the same time, do not mix skin care products containing sodium silicate with other cosmetics to avoid chemical reactions that may affect the effect.

Pay attention to storage methods: Skin treatment items consisting of sodium silicate should be saved in a cool, dry place away from straight sunlight and high temperatures. If the product accidentally gets into your eyes or makes contact with sensitive areas of your skin, rinse it immediately with water.


Is Sodium Silicate Suitable for Eye Cream?

Eye skin characteristics

The skin around the eyes is one of the thinnest and most sensitive areas of the body and is more prone to dryness, fine lines and dark circles. Therefore, when choosing eye cream, you need to pay attention to the mildness and safety of the ingredients and avoid adding ingredients that may cause irritation, allergies or acne.


Safety of sodium silicate in eye creams

Sodium silicate does not have side effects such as acne or allergies, but if added in too much or interacts with other ingredients, it may cause skin discomfort. Therefore, when choosing sodium silicate eye cream, you must pay attention to the ingredient list to avoid adding too much or mixing it with other ingredients that may cause allergies.

The effect of sodium silicate in eye cream

Sodium silicate is well-received for its emollient and moisturizing effects, and can help improve dry skin, fine lines and other problems, but its impact on dark circles and eye bags could be more precise. In addition, if too much is added, sodium silicate may produce white residue on the skin's surface, affecting its appearance.
