Due to their volatility (varying rates of evaporation), low surface tensions (High Spreadability), and non-greasy feel, Cyclomethicones are used as base fluids, carrying agents and wetting agents in a wide range of personal care products. Cosmetic applications include: room sprays, body sprays, antiperspirants, skin creams, skin lotions, suntan lotions, bath oils, hair care products etc.
This cyclomethicone fluid will provide 100% evaporation at room temperature and is an excellent base fluid/carying agent for body sprays and room sprays.
- Clear, colourless, odourless fluid
- Cosmetic grade…excellent for base fluids in cosmetic formulations
- Volatile carrier (100% evaporation at room temperature)..leaves no residue
- Low heat of vaporisation…non-stinging and will not cool the skin when it evaporates
- Excellent lubricity before evaporation
- Low surface tension fluids (high spread-ability)
- Exempt from federal VOC regulations (including CARB)…replacement for petroleum based solvents that are not VOC Compliant
- VOC Exempt Solvent for low solvency applications
- Miscible with virtually all polydimethylsiloxane fluids and most petroleum based fluids
- Soluble in most anhydrous alcohols, waxes, oils (except castor), hydrocarbon oils, esters and silicone fluid.
- Insoluble in water
