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.

Key Benefits:

  • 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 and silicone oil (dimethicone).

Suggested Usage: 1 - 10%
Appearance: Clear oily liquid
Solubility: Soluble in water (see detail above)
Country of Origin: USA


INCI: Dimethyl Isosorbide

Caution: Do not directly apply onto your skin. This product should be added to a formulation at the recommended usage rate.

So that our staff may enjoy the Labor Day Holiday, Lotioncrafter's offices will be closed on Monday, September 4th. We will reopen on Tuesday, September 5th. During this time, we will not be returning phone calls or email messages. Shipping will resume on Tuesday, September 5th. Orders, emails and phone calls will be handled in the order received, as best we are able. Please expect some delays as we work through the holiday backlog! We also cannot guarantee changes to orders will be seen before orders have shipped, those that we do catch, will be held back to adjust, which will mean a shipping delay. We appreciate your understanding. Have a safe and happy Labor Day!

Our Customers Say...
The day I realized that topical vitamin C was causing my acne was the beginning of a long journey for me. Vitamin C is present is just about every kind of makeup and every face cream available on the market. LotionCrafters, with their amazing choice of products, and their detailed information has allowed me to create my own vitamin-c-free formulations, and have healthy skin once again.
Virginia Berthy

Best customer service! I forgot an item and they easily updated my order. As a bonus, they got my products into a smaller shipping box and saved me a nice chunk of money. Who would of thought a retailer would go to the trouble of saving their customer money?!? Definitely my new go-to supplier. Honesty and excellent customer service are much appreciated.

As a maker of high quality oils and incenses, sachets and other scented goodies, I cannot speak highly enough of how satisfied I am to be able to come here, find exactly what I need, put in my order and its in my mailbox so swiftly I wonder if you are sleeping on cots waiting for us to hit that order button. (just kidding). It *is* nice to know when I am running low on a product, I can place my order and know I have no worries; my goods will arrive swiftly, and undamaged and exactly what I ordered; every time. I am so glad I found your site; you have a customer for as long as I can continue to make all the goodies I make. Thank you so much!
Mrs. Cindy Lamprecht, (Harvest Moon Haven)

Lotioncrafter, you are THE MOST PROFESSIONAL, serious, and dependable company I have ever encountered! Your information is correct, scientific, and to the point. You deliver quickly and reliably.
I have ordered too many times from you - only because for me, it has been a learning curve as I research all the actives to slow aging and improve skin!

Thank you!
