Dimethicone ~4000 (Polydimethylsiloxane) - CAS 9016-00-6

Dimethicone(Cat No.:R062304), also known as Polydimethylsiloxane, is a silicone-based polymer with a high molecular weight, typically around 4000 daltons. This clear and odorless substance is widely used in cosmetics, personal care products, and pharmaceuticals. Dimethicone’s unique properties include high viscosity, thermal stability, and water repellency, making it an ideal ingredient in skincare and haircare products. It acts as an emollient, providing a smooth, non-greasy feel to skin and hair while forming a protective barrier. Additionally, its lubricating and anti-foaming properties find applications in pharmaceutical formulations and industrial processes, making it a versatile and essential compound.
