Description 

 

This clear, colorless silicone adds a silky texture, luster and sheen without the oily residue. Known as a skin conditioner and an emollient. It evaporates quickly, making it an excellent carrier for perfume!

Use at 1% to 5% in lotions, conditioners, and salves for a nice silky, non-greasy feel.
To make a perfume mix 1 ounce of Cyclomethicone with 1/10 oz of fragrance or essential oil. Shake well and apply to skin.

INCI: Cyclohexasiloxane (and) Cyclopentasiloxane

 

NOTE: This medium-flashpoint oil (170ºF) will ship FedEx only, regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout. It cannot ship via USPS (i.e. Priority Mail or Flat Rate)

Doesn't mix well.
Does leave skin soft - I applied to wrists and it dries without leaving any grease behind. Cloudy when 5% fragrance oil is added. Fragrance oil will not blend with it no matter how long and hard I shake - it keeps separating from it, sort of like those "tornado in a bottle" oil-in-water experiments kids make. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Is there an additive that will help with the cloudiness and separation?

Hi Miya! Most fragrance oils mix in well with Cyclomethicone, but because not all have been tested for this application, it’s possible that not all will mix in thoroughly. To help your fragrance or essential oils combine better, I would recommend adding DPG (Dipropylene Glycol) and Isopropyl Alcohol.You can see an example of this recipe in this blog post!
