Is Silicone Harmful To The Human Body?

- Apr 26, 2018-

  Silica gel itself is not toxic, but some silicones contain additives that are harmful to the human body. The main component of silica gel is silica, which is chemically stable and non-toxic. Silica gel has a strong adsorption capacity and has a drying effect on human skin. If silicone gets into your eyes, rinse with plenty of water and seek medical attention as soon as possible.

  Silicon is the most common plastic and cosmetic filling material. For example, solid silicone can be used for rhinoplasty and chin, and silicone gel can be used for breast enhancement, buttocks, etc. However, can these materials fill the human body and cause harm to the human body?

  Silicon is a chemical element and it is also the most abundant element in the earth's crust. Its compounds normally form sand, rock formations and glass. Silicone is considered to be the most suitable material for implanting the human body. All human bodies have some silicone. Silicone is widely used in medical devices, pharmaceuticals, foods and other fields.

  The use of silicone materials in daily consumer products has been more than 50 years old. Many products that people use every day contain silicones, such as hairsprays, sunscreen lotions, and moisturizers.

  Silicone can also serve as a pacemaker and heart valve outer membrane, so as to play a protective role. Other silicones used in medical devices include artificial joints, catheters, urinary systems, maxillofacial implants, tissue expanders, and prostheses. Silicone products are biocompatible, reliable, stable, and easily sterilized. Therefore, regardless of whether the medical device product is implanted in the human body, silicone materials can be applied.
