Cyclomethicone is an excellent all around product for formulating all kinds of bath and body and hair products.

Imparts a nice feel to products and leaves skin and hair smooth and shiny.

It is also an ideal carrier for fragrances since it instantly evaporates, leaving nothing behind but your chosen scent.

In hair and skin care formulations, Cyclomethicone fluid will reduce the greasy feel of heavy emollients and oils and butters like Shea Butter. Helps in personal care for making an emollient for "oil free" moisturizers, and offers light conditioning as well as improved dry and wet combout in hair care.
