Raw material source: Dimethyldichlorosilane, polyoxyethylene 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 of polysiloxanes. In a polymerization reaction with water the polysiloxanes are then polymerized to a linear silicone polymer (dimethicone). Dimethicone is then further reacted with polyoxyethylene to form PEG-8 dimethicone.
