The behavior of the w/o/w emulsion system and the stability of the oil membrane depend on the type of oil used to make the emulsion. Conductimetric analysis of the release of entrapped marker magnesium sulfate showed that the highest release of the marker occurred in emulsions based on oils from the triglyceride group. Emulsions based on hydrocarbon oils showed the best stability.

Understanding silicones requires understanding the three operations used to make them: construction, functionalization and derivatization. These operations are explained and illustrated, respectively, with dimethicone, PEG-8 dimethicone and dimethicone copolyol silicone esters. In addition, structure-function relationships are explained.
