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...
This is by far the most comprehensive and technologically advanced site I have visited. I am very impressed by your product availability and ease of using your website. Can't wait to receive my first order and look forward to working with you in the future.
Janet Fikany, (JanetLand Delectables)

Products are amazing and the shipping is lightning speed. It almost seems like the day that I place an order, I get a confirmation that it has shipped. Thanks for great service and products.

I purchase a 5LBS bucket of Shea Nilotica from Lotion Crafter (my first time ever purchasing off this site). The creamy, buttery, light yellow color of it is amazing!!!! It is super soft, light scented, and looks like vanilla ice cream. I am VERY happy with my purchase,and will certainly purchase again. I use by itself on my skin and mix in my whipped body butters. It isn't grainy at all. 5 STARS!!
Charmaine Pitt, (SuriiShae Naturals)

As a maker of high quality oils and incenses, sachets and other scented goodies, I cannot speak highly enough of how satisfied I am to be able to come here, find exactly what I need, put in my order and its in my mailbox so swiftly I wonder if you are sleeping on cots waiting for us to hit that order button. (just kidding). It *is* nice to know when I am running low on a product, I can place my order and know I have no worries; my goods will arrive swiftly, and undamaged and exactly what I ordered; every time. I am so glad I found your site; you have a customer for as long as I can continue to make all the goodies I make. Thank you so much!
Mrs. Cindy Lamprecht, (Harvest Moon Haven)

I have been buying products from lotioncrafter since 2012 (I think? maybe longer?).

Why?

Because they run a fantastic business, one.

Two, because they are some of the friendliest people in the cosmetic supply business.

Three, because they sell everything at a fair price, which is important when you are sourcing things for a boutique beauty brand like mine.

Four, because they have things I cannot get in small quantities anywhere else.

They are friendly, efficient, sell ethical products and just run a great business. I'm proud to be a customer, I'm glad they are one of my suppliers, and I don't forsee that changing anytime soon. Thanks for being awesome, LotionCrafter!
