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...
Jen/Lotioncrafter continues to meet and exceed my expectations. I will be a customer for life! Not only do they provide consistently high quality and hard to find products they always deliver excellent service and ship quickly. They truly excel at what they do and I have never been disappointed.
cynthia, (esencia de san miguel)

I just started buying from LotionCrafter's, I am so elated that I found them. They have excellent quality products at very reasonable costs and able to buy in small quantities if needed without a minimum. Most of all is the wealth of information that they have with each product. I have been looking for a supplier like this for years. Glad to have found you.

Ordered the argan oil several months ago. This product is amazing!..and I'm ordering more. I have below the shoulder relaxed hair thats fairly healthy so I didn't think I would see such a dramatic result. My hair texture is now more silky and stronger! Ordering is fast and easy, customer service is great!!! Can't thank you enough!

I just received the L-Ascorbic Acid now, boy, it melted so quickly. i'm very, very pleased with this product. I wish I'd listened to the testimonials on-line so that my other L-Ascorbic Acid I bought from another retailer wouldn't be wasted. It takes too long before it melts even if its a fine powder. It is good for drinking with beverage as a Vitamin C supplement, but if you use it for facial serum - forget about it because the melting takes forever unless you mix it with hot water, then what's the point of doing it - we all know that Vitamin C oxides with hot temperatures.
So folks, if you want Vitamin C Serum, Lotioncrafter is the best, not to mention about their fast shipping!
