Description: 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. Clear liquid, odorless. Insoluble in water, soluble in alcohol, dispersible in oils & fats.

CAS: 63148-62-9

INCI Name: Dimethicone

Properties: 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 and gives a non-greasy, dry feel. Improves wet & dry combing, gives softness & silky gloss in hair care products. Makes colors more dispersible (solvent).

Use: 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.

Applications: Hair & skin conditioning products as shampoos, conditioners, creams, lotions, but also color cosmetics. Skin protectant products.

Important Note: Dimethicone is registered as an OTC skin protectant drug with the FDA (Category I; allowed concentration 1-30%). This means that if you want to sell a finished product containing dimethicone and you make a skin protectant claim (incl. minor cuts, scrapes, burns, chapped skin and lips, poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac, and insect bites), dimethicone must then be listed under 'Active Ingredients' on the label. Also, your facility and your product must be registered with the FDA and you must operate under cGMP guidelines. However, if no skin protectant drug claims are made on the label, dimethicone is not considered an OTC drug and no registration is needed.
