Actived dimethicon

Hello
good day
Can anyone tell me what is the difference between activated dimethicone and dimethicone in chemical structure and mechanism?

    @Zahra I never heard the term activated dimethicone. Perhaps it refers to the modified dimethicones with functional groups (like amodimethicones), but in that case, the term should be reactive dimethicone.

    Sounds like marketingspeak to me.

    Hi, active dimethicone is the same as simethicone.
    According to my study in the articles but I do not know if it is true or not?

    @Zahra Simethicone is basically poly(dimethylsiloxane) or dimethicone, with added silica gel. I actually used it as antifoam agent in fabric softeners. But I'd never think about it as "activated" dimethicone, because the dimethicone polymer didn't suffer any structural change. But that's only my opinion 😁
