Cyclomethicone is a volatile, cyclic (circular) silicone fluid that has a lightning fast dry-time, making it the ideal carrier for fragrances because it instantly evaporates, leaving nothing behind but your chosen scent. Cyclomethicone (D5) will reduce the greasy feel of heavy emollients such as Shea Butter, makes an excellent emollient for "oil free" moisturizers, and offers light conditioning as well as improved dry and wet combout in hair care.
