Use: Cyclo-1400 is a blend of cyclomethicone and dimethiconol. It consists of a 13% solution of an ultra-high viscosity dimethiconol in a blend of cyclotetrasiloxane and cycolpentasilxoane (D4 & D5). The fluid blend provides soft feel, spreadability and substantivity. It is widely used in hair care formulations to provide a soft-silky feel and to protect against split ends.
It can be readily emulsified or combined with volatile silicone, mineral oil and cosmetic esters to provide a delivery vehicle for active ingredients such as sun screens, skin care products & hair conditioners.
