Nowadays, people have higher and higher requirements for the standard of living and health. From skin care equipment to small electrical appliances used in daily life, it is required to be healthy and environmentally friendly, harmless and pollution-free. The face-washing instruments and electric toothbrushes that are used more on the market have recently been divided into two categories in terms of materials, silicone and nylon. From an innovative point of view, the entry of medical silicone material has shocked the entire beauty industry. This new concept and technology has been applied to your daily necessities, and more and more people have begun to pursue this material. items. From the point of view of beauty, the technology of medical silicone is quite mature, and it has opened a gap with other materials all the way, so it has gradually become the main core material of instruments in the beauty industry.
So, how much do you know about silicone? Among the many synthetic rubbers, silicone is the best among them. It is odorless and non-toxic, not afraid of high temperature and resistant to severe cold. It is "comfortable" and "unchanged in color" at 300 degrees Celsius and minus 90 degrees Celsius, and still does not lose its original strength and elasticity. Silicone rubber also has good electrical insulation, oxygen resistance, aging resistance, light resistance and aging resistance, mildew resistance, chemical stability, etc. Due to these excellent properties, silicone rubber has gained a very wide and important use in modern medicine.
Medical silicone is a widely used biological material in cosmetic surgery. It has relatively mature technology and good biocompatibility. It is non-irritating, non-toxic, non-allergic, and has very little body rejection. It can maintain its original elasticity and softness during contact with body fluids and tissues, and is not degraded. It is a fairly stable inert substance. It can withstand high temperature and can be sterilized. It is easy to process and form, and it is a good thing for easy processing and engraving.
In terms of characteristics, silicone rubber has heat resistance, cold resistance, non-toxicity, biological aging resistance, physiological inertness, minimal reaction to human tissue, no foreign body reaction even after implantation in human tissue, no inflammation to surrounding tissue and relatively Good physical and mechanical properties.
In terms of performance and stability, silica gel is an amorphous substance, and its chemical formula is mSiO2.nH2O. It is insoluble in water and any solvent, non-toxic and tasteless, chemically stable, and does not react with any substances except strong alkali and hydrofluoric acid. In terms of hydrophobicity, in fact, this is a problem that the medical industry has always wanted to solve. Because of the characteristics of silicone, after the silicone object is implanted into the human body, it will cause a foreign body sensation and make people feel uncomfortable, so everything is always a double-edged sword. , There is no harm and no benefit. Because of the hydrophobicity of silica gel, very little water can be retained on the surface of silica gel, which will basically be evaporated, which enhances its antibacterial properties. Because there is no water, most bacteria are Without a living environment, ensuring a dry surface also ensures antibacterial properties. Compared with softness, the softness of silica gel is due to its good physical and chemical properties. It can maintain its original elasticity and softness during contact with body fluids and tissues. On the touch, the irritation to the skin will be much less.
Therefore, according to the current trend, silica gel has become a symbol of high-tech in the beauty industry. It is not limited to a certain product, but more fields will use the characteristics of silica gel to the extreme, thus leading to new trends in the beauty industry. Authoritative technology.
