MMS continues to work hard for our customers and cyclomethicone is the perfect example. There are a ton of cyclomethicone varieties available and MMS has chosen one, specifically cyclopentasiloxane, as the variety that will best suit our cutomers.
Cyclopentasiloxane has a higher flash point so you can ship your room sprays or perfumes on an airplane without worry. Other vendors sell a cyclomethicone that can't even ship to you via airplane! Be wary, your safety, and the safety of others, is very important. For your reference the flash point is 170 degrees F.
Cyclopentasiloxane is the perfect balance between volatility (quick drying) and spreadability. We think it is great for hair treatments, bath oils, creams and lotions, room/linen sprays, and more. Cyclopentasiloxane adds a soft, talc-like feel and is the base for superb dry perfume oils.
INCI labeling allows for the use of either name so please use the name most suited to your product and customer base.
This cyclomethicone is also known as Cyclomethicone NF.

Creating perfumes, colognes and room sprays has always been incredibly frustrating. We can choose to work with hazardous materials (perfumers alcohol), deal with a cloudy product that must be shaken frequently or choose dry oils that may not be compatible with your fragrance oil. What if we no longer had to choose? Well, I am delighted to announce that our Research and Development team has something worth getting very excited about. With our Spray Clear Emulsifier you no longer have to choose! You can have it all - a clear product, no shaking and easy to work with.
This amazing emulsifier allows you to make clear sprays with ease and simplicity. Check out the blog for hints and tricks on how to use this astonishing emulsifier! Once you try this, you will never want to go back! You can make room sprays, perfumes, colognes and more!
Our Spray Clear Emulsifier works well with a wide range of fragrances and essential oils. This does not eliminate testing with your own fragrances and essential oils. We recommend that you test this product with your materials.
Please note that if you get occasional clouding at the onset of mixing, it should clear within a few days. The hazy layer will generally settle out or rise to the top which will allow you to decant off the clear material. My own experience with this product is that cloudiness rarely occurs and it is easily removed with a few days of patience. When I made a few mixtures that I didn't use enough of the emulsifier I could not get a clear product. So, I learned to follow the directions! I love emulsifiers that work so well. Enjoy!
