Dimethyl Isosorbide 
CAS No.: 5306-85-4

Dimethyl Isosorbide (DMI) is a high purity solvent and carrier which offers a safe, effective delivery enhancement mechanism for active ingredients in personal care products. Sunless tanners, facial and eye-zone treatments, skin serums, anti-acne formulations and make-up removers are just some of the products whose performance can be improved with the use of Dimethyl Isosorbide (DMI) in formulation. In addition to improving performance, its use as an epidermal penetration enhancer may allow formulators to reduce the amount of actives required to achieve effects, resulting in reduced formulation costs, and lower skin irritation with aggressive active ingredients.

Dimethyl Isosorbide (DMI) offers:

  • Enhanced penetration of actives to the epidermis, reaching areas that would otherwise go untreated
  • Improved shelf stability of active ingredients, including actives susceptible to hydrolysis and transesterification
  • Miscibility in water, most organic solvents and non-ionic surfactants
  • The ability to transport water soluble actives into skin without recrystallization of the active ingredient

Dimethyl Isosorbide is soluble in a variety of ingredients including water, cottonseed oil, isopropanol, isopropyl myristate, propylene glycol, polysorbate 20, and polysorbate 80. It is insoluble in hydrogenated castor oil, lanolin, mineral oils or silicone oil (dimethicone).

Suggested Usage: 1 - 10%
Appearance: Clear oily liquid
Solubility: Soluble in water (see above)


INCI: Dimethyl Isosorbide

Caution: Do not directly apply onto your skin.

I love lotioncrafters! I have only had two orders and their customer service is the most professional I have encountered! The day I ordered the product shipped! Superior products at the best price and very fair shipping!!! I am thrilled to find them and plan to order again very soon. Truly there is no ther place one need to order from, this is top notch, professional and ethical company! I think Jen is the owner and when I had questions promptly and professionally answered them! A plus! And i have ordered supplies from many places, there is no comparision!

Linda Gutschke-Knight

Fastest and nicest service ever. Ordered the Shea nilotica yesterday and Jen wasn't kidding. This is some luxurious shea. Very rich and creamy, not grainy at all and hardly a scent compared to others I've used. Impressed that the delivery made it in a day and of the care and time taken to change and fix my order....the morning of! The measuring tools were just a bonus for a professional first purchase experience, thank you so much.

I just wanted to say how much I love the service. Soon after placing my order I got an email confirmation that is was shipping. I received the right item and was pleased with it. I shop online all the time and this site has the fastest shipping and best customer service I've ever come across. No complaints. I'll definitely be ordering from this site again.
