[Statement] Silicones industry remains committed to implementing necessary measures of restriction and demonstrating safety of D4 and D5

Following the United Kingdom’s proposal to restrict the use of cyclotetrasiloxane (D4) and cyclopentasiloxane (D5) (or general cyclomethicone) in wash-off personal care products, the silicones industry reinforces its commitment to demonstrate their safety and to continue to collaborate with all its partners to ensure the successful implementation of the restriction proposal.
