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.
This product should be added to a formulation at the recommended usage rate.

Our Customers Say...
Hi Jenny,
I just had to write to you a give you a HUGE kudos!!!!!!!!!!

Not only did I place my order on Monday .. I didn't pay for it until Monday afternoon. I received it this morning ... Wednesday morning. For the record, I am 1791 miles away from you (yes, I looked it up). Truly unbelievable .. especially this time of year with the holiday rush!

You have always been .. and continue to be .. so helpful with your ingredients and products. You ship *SO* quickly! I just adore you .. your products ... your service. You have gained a customer for life!!!

I just hope that someday .. somewhere .. I can give back to you in some way. Maybe it'll be referrals? I'll be shouting from the rooftops how great you are!!

I am new to lotion making and was having a hard time figuring out how to use Liquid Germall Plus at the right percentages. I called Jen and she gave me the most informative answer to my question that I've ever received from a company like this. I am very pleased with Lotioncrafter and I will definitely be a return customer.
