Plant derived volatile silicones substitute

INCI name

Polyglyceryl-4 Oleate, Glyceryl Oleate, Hydrogenated Rapeseed Alcohol


SILGREEN® G is a 100% plant-derived substitute to volatile silicone oils designed to confer the dry and silky texture of Hexadecane and Cyclopentasiloxane while being silicon-free. It is a combination of Hydrogenated Rapeseed Alcohol and natural polymers derived from Olive Oil.
SILGREEN® G is also an excellent dispersant and is suitable to disperse both physical and chemical filters in suncare applications or coloring pigments in color cosmetics.
SILGREEN® G is a very light and volatile emollient; it provides a superb solution to meet the rising market demand for new green and sustainable alternatives to silicones for the cosmetic industry. 



SILGREEN® G demonstrates significant advantages in terms of emulsion texture, lightness, lower greasiness, spreadability, and absorption, although it has inferior long-lasting properties.
These attributes make SILGREEN® G a highly effective ingredient in delivering a smooth, lightweight, and non-greasy application.
These findings suggest that SILGREEN® G is a competitive natural alternative to Cyclopentasiloxane, offering several benefits in cosmetic formulations where texture, feel, and absorption are critical factors.
  • Non-greasy Feel
  • Colorless And Odorless
  • Non-polar Emollient
  • Ultra-low Viscosity
  • Liphophilic Ingredients Compatible
  • Excellent Spreadability
  • Emollient
  • Compatible With UV Filters
  • Highly Stable Against Oxidation
  • Completely Safe For Topical Use
  • Mostly Biodegradable
