Sample of four different oils.
  • Silicones are intregral to high-end cosmetic formulating. They are used in all kinds of products: hair, skin, personal lubricants. Silicones can make the bulk of a formula (as in a hair "shine spray" or be a small addition to one (as in a lotion looking for improved spreadability).
  • Silicon Gel. Thick, jelly-like, clear and odorless. Rubs into the skin in a non sticky fashion, leaving behind a dry after feel with a matte finish.

    • Viscosity: not available
    • Flash Point: relatively low flash point of 76C (169F), making it a semi-hazardous product. Keep away from flames and sparks.
    • INCI: Cyclopentasiloxane and Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer

    Dimethicone 350 (f.k.a Silicon Liquid - Dimethicone). This is a medium viscosity dimethicone.

    • Viscosity: 350
    • Flash Point: 157C (315F)
    • INCI: Dimethicone

    Dimethicone 100. This would also be considered a medium viscosity dimethicone. But because it is thinner than our Dimethicone 350, it is more appropriate for a hair spray or formulary where you need a lighter weight oil.

    • Viscosity: 100
    • Flash Point: 149C (300F)
    • INCI: Dimethicone

    Cyclopentasiloxane. This product is considered a "volatile fluid" in that it will disappear into thin air if you leave it uncovered (just like alcohol). Very lightweight!

    • Viscosity: 4
    • Flash Point: relatively low flash point of 77C (169F), making it a semi-hazardous product to handle. Keep away from flames and sparks.
    • INCI: Cyclopentasiloxane
