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.

Our Customers Say...
Just got my first order- in just 2 days- and I can't wait to use my new ingredients. Fantastic, fast service.
Sue S.

I happened upon Lotioncrafter 3 years ago when my business became an idea. To this day I can't find better prices, variety or customer service. As my business becomes a reality I'll be sure to use Lotioncrafter as a source for my ingredients!

Thank you very much!
Yukiko, (Musashi The Bee)

I purchase a 5LBS bucket of Shea Nilotica from Lotion Crafter (my first time ever purchasing off this site). The creamy, buttery, light yellow color of it is amazing!!!! It is super soft, light scented, and looks like vanilla ice cream. I am VERY happy with my purchase,and will certainly purchase again. I use by itself on my skin and mix in my whipped body butters. It isn't grainy at all. 5 STARS!!
Charmaine Pitt, (SuriiShae Naturals)

I have been a client for a few years now and during this period I have had a chance to use many suppliers. I can state emphatically that no other company comes close to servicing our needs or is as responsive to our requests as Lotioncrafter.
Kudos to Jen and her team
