Purity Grade:No purity grade applicable
Appearance:Clear liquid, odorless
Solubility:Insoluble in water, partly soluble in alcohol, dispersible in oils & fats
Storage:Store in a closed container at a dry place at room temperature
Country of Origin:China
Raw Material Source:Dimethyldichlorosilane and water
Manufacture:Dimethicone is made from dimethyldichlorosilane which is produced by powdered silicon (silicone dioxide) and methyl chloride. Dimethyldichlorosilane is then hydrolyzed to give a hydrolysate mixture of polysiloxanes. In a polymerization reaction with water the polysiloxanes are then polymerized to a linear silicone polymer (dimethicone).
Animal Testing:Not animal tested
GMO:GMO-free (does not contain plant-derived components)
Vegan:Does not contain animal-derived components
Dimethicone Fluid is a 100% active linear silicone polymer with a viscosity of only 10 cps. Usually, linear silicones are large high-molecular polymers (polydimethylsiloxanes) and are viscous and more oil-like, whereas this special dimethicone is a non-viscous form.
- Used for its low viscosity in various liquid, low-viscous skin and hair care products
- Will take out the whitening of creams and lotions when rubbed into the skin
- Gives a non-greasy, dry feel
- Improves wet and dry combing and gives softness and a silky gloss to the hair
- Makes colors more dispersible (acts as solvent)
Typical use level 1-20% (up to 50% possible), add to oil phase of formulas or at the end of formula. Do not heat over 50°C (125°F). For external use only.
Hair & skin conditioning products as shampoos, conditioners, creams, lotions, but also color cosmetics. Skin protectant products.
