Name: Dimethicone 100 CST
Note: Dimethicones are a family of silicones which are differentiated between each other by their viscosity. So a 100 CST is thinner than a 350 CST product and as a consequence feels lighter on the skin. The range in viscosity for silicone fluids runs between 5 CST and 60,000 CST with the higher end ingredients being soft spongy gels and the lower end of the scale being volatile, light fluids. At low imput levels it might not be possible to notice a difference in skin feel between the 100 CST and 350 CST product but for colour cosmetics and hair products the difference is more pronounced. 100 CST is better for hair care and 350 leaves a more pleasant cushioned feeling to the skin in colour applications. In an emulsion either is suitable.
INCI Name: Dimethicone.
Solubility: Insoluble in water, ethanol and vegetable oils but soluble in Isopropyl Myristate, Palmitate and Laurate and Lauryl Alcohol.
Benefits:Dimethicone fluids reduce the surface tension of a formulating allowing it to spread easily across the skin or hair. They can form
a barrier on the skin to prevent moisture loss, act as lubricants or as skin-feel modifiers bringing a silky, invisible feel to emulsions.
Finally they can be used in colour cosmetics to enable 'oil free' claims.
