Description: 100% active cyclic silicone polymer blend consisting of siloxane D4 (cyclotetrasiloxane) and siloxane D5 (cyclopentasiloxane). Cyclic silicones are low-molecular weight silicones and are not viscous but very fluid and often used as solvents. Linear silicones (e.g. dimethicone) are large high-molecular polymers that are viscous and more oil-like. Clear to slightly hazy liquid, odorless. Very low water solubility (20 micrograms/L), soluble in alcohol, mixable in oils.CAS: 556-67-2, 541-02-6INCI Name: Cyclotetrasiloxane, cyclopentasiloxane
