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

Our Customers Say...
I have never been so moved to show appreciation as i am right now. i can't believe my order was so speedy; and with just the standard shipping too! i received it within 5d on the dot to Canada using USPS.

And if the service wasn't enough i must say i am completely in love with everything i ordered. I couldn't imagine the Shea Nilotica being much different from the standard shea you can get everywhere else but it's like night and day! i can't even look at my remaining shea anymore because it pales in comparison. the Shea Nilotica is so silky, never gets clumpy or grainy and goes on so smooth it felt like a spa treatment. My other favourite is the SheaAloe which at first seemed like a miss; i was expecting a thicker, more creamy feel but it's quite thin. What surprises me about it though is that even though it does not go on thick, it is incredibly incredibly moisturizing and is very readily absorbed into my thick african hair.

i'll be ordering more of the Shea Nilotica (the 5gallon bucket this time) and likely some product continers as well. Thank you once again for being awesome.

I received my certified organic refined Shea butter today and was extremely pleased. I must say that it is the BEST refined butter I have ever used. The texture is creamy and the feel is like silk, absolutely no odor and the feel of your skin is so soft and smooth. It's truly a nourishment. I'm almost speechless on the great quality of this product. I'm ordering 15 more pounds and sure to be back for more. Thank you Lotioncrafter for providing such an amazing product, you have a customer for life.
Shalice John, (Skin Commandments)

I absolutely LOVE the customer service and QUICK turnaround this company provides. The products are top-notch, and the prices are excellent. I can't say enough good things about Lotioncrafter!
Robyn Gerard

My biggest dilemma is that I live in Hawaii and finding reputable and affordable suppliers is near impossible, and once you locate one the shipping is out of this world ($50+ for shipping alone normally); when I found your website I was hopeful. Not only did you have the refined Shea Butter I was looking for, but you had everything else too! And the shipping was VERY affordable. I received my order 1 day sooner than I expected it (and shipping to Hawaii normally takes longer than shipping 'locally' within the continental US). I couldn't be more pleased with everything that you have to offer. I will definitely be ordering again, you have a customer for life!
Ginger(http://www.simplyaroma.com/gingertolbert)

Absolutely the best supplier of raw ingredients all around; not least because of the exceptional customer service and freely-shared knowledge of the owner, Jen. She was obviously born to do this, and I'm thankful for that pretty much every time I place and order or contact her with a question (frequently, in other words). Great, informative website too, and competitive prices. This is always the first site I visit when ordering.
Kirsten, (Virga Botanicals)
