How to use? 

This product could be dispersed into the oil-phase using simple mixing.

It can be added to the oil phase or silicone phase in an emulsion formulation.

It can be post-added to emulsions provided the emulsion is viscous enough for the products to be dispersed.

For ease of use, blending with dimethicone or cyclomethicone may reduce its viscosity.

When heat is used, the material should be processed in an enclosed vessel to prevent the cylcopentasiloxane from volatilizing.

The recommended processing temperature is not over 60℃.


This product would become very thick or even lumpy after a period of time. This is normal and it will recovery to original state after slightly agitate. The suggested usage level is 1%-20%.
