Lotioncrafter 532 Point Lawrence Road Olga, WA 98279 www.lotioncrafter.com Cyclomethicone and Fragrance Oils As more and more of us work with cyclomethicone in the creation of cyclomethicone based room, linen and body sprays, we're coming to find that not all fragrance and essential oils are miscible in cyclomethicone. Miscibility is the ability of two liquids to mix without separation into separate phases. There is obviously one or several aroma chemicals in some of the fragrance oils that do not combine with cyclomethicone. However, since the blends are proprietary, there is no way to know what those are. The INCI name cyclomethicone covers a variety of blends which will vary from vendor to vendor. They are not all the same, although all can use the same INCI name. Cyclomethicone fluids can be only one or a combination of D3, D4, D5, D6, D7, D8 volatile fluids. For example, our Lotioncrafter LC995 is 99.5% cyclopentasiloxane (D5) and our LC8515 is 85% cycloteterasiloxane (D4) and 15% cyclopentasiloxane (D5). From what we have seen so far, it probably doesn't matter which cyclomethicone blend you have (or from what vendor), if the FO or EO is not miscible in one, it probably won't be in any of them. We have tested straight D4 and straight D5 and my testing of some of the immiscible FOs and EOs seems to bear this out. If you'd like to assist with this project, here’s what you can do. The best way to test is to simply pour about a teaspoon of cyclomethicone into something like a shot glass. Add a couple drops of the FO or EO in question, and stir well. It will either mix completely and the mixture will clear promptly, or it will puddle on the bottom or create a hazy/cloudy mix with suspended droplets that will eventually settle to the bottom. Some fragrances that are initially hazy may clear given enough time; some never will. If an initially hazy mixture appears to have cleared, be sure to stir it up to make sure the FO hasn’t simply settle to the bottom. Report your findings to [email protected] and we'll add them to the database. Please be sure to include the Vendor Name and the full Fragrance Name with your results. It is important to note that even immiscible fragrance oils can be used in the creation of scented cyclomethicone products, because the scent is picked up by the cyclomethicone in most cases, with the immiscible fraction settling out. It may simply mean that working with these will be a two step process. Instead of simply adding FO or EO to cyclomethicone in a bottle, you mix it in a larger vessel, let the immiscible portion settle out and decant the scented cyclomethicone into your retail bottles. This is no big deal, but is nice to know ahead of time! This database is a collaborative effort and is meant to be a guideline. It is possible your results may vary.
