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...
What a pleasant surprise to work with a company that ALWAYS deliver on-time or early, exactly what I ordered, and responds to questions as soon as I ask! I am very pleased with my interactions with Lotioncrafters!
Marie Plageman, (Bullenbees)

Thank you Jen for a quickly processed, thoughtfully packaged order.
I am having a ball formulating. I love the wide range of products and great information on your site.
Thank you for the extra goodies you tucked in. Now I know what I was missing and plan to add a few more tools!
Gail

I love this company.Not only do they have a great selection, great prices and very reasonable and fast shipping. They gave me a price adjustment that I don't even know I had coming ! Not only did they adjust the price of the item, but they adjusted the shipping charges as well, AFTER I had already received the product ! If lotioncrafter had soaping supplies, I wouldn't go anywhere else. This company has Integrity. Love lotioncrafters !
Margaret Sperandeo, (Savin Rock Soaps)

When running a small business cost is a very big deal. So far no one can match Lotioncrafter's prices, the 2nd most important thing is speed of shipping, I still can get over just how fast I get my orders. They have a life time customer here in Chicago..
Angel Mason, (AKM Holistic)

My computer chat group of soapmakers began the year after Jen began her supplier career
"Lotioncrafter". We began when only a handful of folks were both selling supplies and only a few were actually making lotion and soap at home. The industry has boomed and it's a testimonial to see Jen's supply business still at the top of the supplier list! So many have come and gone. That is because both her supplies and her technical and customer support is superior to all the rest!
Thank you!
Debra Sturdevant
