BELSIL® DM 1 PLUS
BELSIL® DM 1 PLUS is a colorless, clear fluid of low viscosity and high volatility. It is non-polar and insoluble in water but miscible with mineral oils, lower alcohols, esters, and other solvents frequently utilized in cosmetics.
Due to its low heat of vaporization, BELSIL® DM 1 PLUS evaporates from the skin without producing a cooling or stinging effect.
BELSIL® DM 1 PLUS can be utilized as a delivery system in antiperspirant and deodorant formulations as well as hair-care products and color-cosmetic compositions.
It helps to uniformly spread actives and pigments over the surface of hair and skin. It provides sufficient play time in color-cosmetics applications, thereby improving rub-in properties, reducing stickiness, and imparting lubricity and a smooth skin feel.
In hair-care products BELSIL® DM 1 PLUS supports easy spreading of high-viscosity fluids, improves wet combability, and functions as a resin plasticizer in fixative styling products.
To adjust drying times for specific product requirements, BELSIL® DM 1 PLUS may be blended in all proportions with other dimethicones and cyclomethicones.
The 'Best use before end' date of each batch is shown on the product label.
Storage beyond the date specified on the label does not necessarily mean that the product is no longer usable. In this case however, the properties required for the intended use must be checked for quality assurance reasons.
