  • anything ending in “cone”
    • exceptions:
      • an ingredient with both “cone” and “PEG” in the name is water soluble (more here)

      • Lauryl methicone copolyol is water soluble (more here)
      • Dimethicone-PG Diethylmonium Chloride is water soluble (more here and here)
      • Silicone Quaternium-8 is water soluble (more here and here)
  •  ingredients ending in “siloxane”
    • excception: Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein (Hydroxypropyl Polysiloxane) is water soluble(more here)
  • Dimethiconol
  • ingredients that contain “silane” in the name
    • exception: an ingredient with both “silane” and “PEG” in the name is water soluble (more here)
