Lotioncrafter DM350 Dimethicone
CAS No. 63148-62-9


Dimethicone in its simplest form is polydimethylsiloxane, also known as silicone oil, but more commonly called dimethicone. Silicone oils are derived from silica (sand and quartz are silicas).

Dimethicone comes in various viscosities, this one is 350 centistokes, a medium viscosity which offers excellent barrier properties when used in skin protectant formulations. It adds slip and glide, reducing tackiness. It offers conditioning properties when used in hair and skin care applications.

Used at a rate of 1% to 30%, dimethicone conforms to the FDA's Tentative Final Monograph on OTC Skin Protectants. However, provided you make no drug claims for it, dimethicone does not have to be declared as an active ingredient, nor does your product or facility need to conform to OTC drug production standards. Dimethicone can be added to any cosmetic and declared on the ingredient label in descending order. 

When using dimethicone in cosmetic formulations, one should be guided by the usage rates in the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) tables (see our Reference Room for links to these PDFs) as these apply to cosmetics rather than OTC products.

The CIR lists Dimethicone in the Cosmetic Ingredients Found Safe as Used in the following amounts:

  •  Hair Care Preparations - up to 80%
  • Makeup - up to 24%


Typical Usage Rates: 0.5 - 5.0%, up to 80%
Appearance: Clear viscous liquid
Flashpoint: 599°F


INCI: Dimethicone

I love Lotioncrafter products. I just ordered the Shea Nilotica Butter for the first time and it is smooth, creamy and amazing. Great for my products! Delivery was quick and I received some extras. I will be ordering more soon. Thank you Lotioncrafter!
Sandy Bouie, (The Honey Pot)

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)

I have been buying products from lotioncrafter since 2012 (I think? maybe longer?).

Why?

Because they run a fantastic business, one.

Two, because they are some of the friendliest people in the cosmetic supply business.

Three, because they sell everything at a fair price, which is important when you are sourcing things for a boutique beauty brand like mine.

Four, because they have things I cannot get in small quantities anywhere else.

They are friendly, efficient, sell ethical products and just run a great business. I'm proud to be a customer, I'm glad they are one of my suppliers, and I don't forsee that changing anytime soon. Thanks for being awesome, LotionCrafter!
