Silica gel is an amorphous and porous form of silicon dioxide, consisting of an irregular three-dimensional structure of alternating silicon and oxygen atoms with nanometer-scale voids and pores. The voids may contain water or some other liquid or may be filled with gas or vacuum.
Silica gel is sometimes used as a preservation tool to control relative humidity in museum and library exhibits and storage. Other applications include diagnostic test strips, inhalation devices, syringes, drug test kits, and hospital sanitation kits.

Adding silica gel to cosmetic formulations is a cost-effective way to achieve a soft-focus effect that hides wrinkles and skin imperfections. This is because the gel particles are covered with pores, which scatter the light that hits them.
