LC995 Cyclomethicone
CAS No. 541-02-6

Cyclomethicones are cyclic (circular) silicones of low molecular weight that possess a cyclical structure rather than a chain structure (like Dimethicone). Some cyclic silicones are volatile (they evaporate) while others are not.  Cyclic silicones that are volatile include D4 (Cyclotetrasiloxane), D5 (Cyclopentasiloxane) and D6 (Cyclohexasiloxane).  In general, the lower the number, the more volatile the cyclic silicone and the faster it evaporates.

In the cosmetic industry, cyclic silicones are commonly referred to as Cyclomethicone.  This is a generic name for this class of cyclic silicones that comprise  D 4 through D6.

The cosmetic industry has largely moved to using primarily D5 Cyclopentasiloxane in cosmetic formulations and this is the cyclic silicone we offer in our LC995 Cyclomethicone.

Its volatility, excellent spreading and lubrication qualities make it an ideal carrier for other ingredients and excellent light conditioners for hair and skin. Non-greasy, cyclomethicone leaves no oily residue or build-up and imparts a soft silky feel to skin.

Our LC995 Cyclomethicone is a minimum of 96% Cyclopentasiloxane (D5) and will contain no more than 0.0 - 0.099% (a maximum of 990 parts per million) of D4 Cycloteterasiloxane. The Technical Specifications for its purity are as follows:

Our Customers Say...
I recently placed an order and part of my order went to the wrong place. I received several personal phone calls along the way from Jen, the mistake was explained, another shipment was sent out right away, and received it within a matter of days. I love the shipping cost adjustments that are normally made with my orders. I love the quality of the products, the packaging, and the new website. Thank you, Jen.

I got my products very fast and overall I am very satisfied with Lotioncrafter's service. I was surprised that they included extra measuring utensils in the box! I WILL be ordering from Lotioncrafter again.

These guys work in timely manner for sure. After I placed my order on Internet they called me in about 15 min because they had some questing about my address. They also made sure that the method of shipment would meet my needs. The little dish that I got was chipped - they sent me the replacement in no time. I haven't yet made any lotions from the ingredients I've got. I will and I'll tell you my opinion soon! Olga

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.
JaLeigha Williams, (I Am Lov'leigh)

I have been a client for a few years now and during this period I have had a chance to use many suppliers. I can state emphatically that no other company comes close to servicing our needs or is as responsive to our requests as Lotioncrafter.
Kudos to Jen and her team
