Country of Origin: USA

Raw material source: Dimethicone and dimethyldichlorosilane

Manufacture: Dimethicone crosspolymer is produced by crosslinking dimethicone polymeric chains via a hydrosilation reaction. This reaction consists of the addition of silicon hydride bonds (SiH) within the dimethicone polymer backbones using platinum as catalyst. Cyclomethicone 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 cyclic polymer (cyclomethicone).
