Silicones are among the most extensively studied materials used in consumer and industrial applications today. More than 1,000 studies over many decades have been conducted to assess the safety of silicones for workers, consumers, the environment, and manufacturing processes. Results of this continuous research and testing demonstrate the safety of silicones in their diverse and important applications. A host of independent scientists and expert scientific panels have confirmed silicones’ safety both for human health and the environment. The silicones industry supports the safe and responsible use of silicone materials and endorses the use of risk-based weight-of-evidence chemical assessments.
