DESCRIPTION
IOTA-1401 Fluid is a 13% solution of an ultra-high viscosity dimethiconol fluid in a blend of cyclotetrasiloxane and cyclopentasiloxane. These cyclomethicones have been specially blended to prevent freezing and the dimethiconol level selected to maintain a pourable product.

HOW TO USE
IOTA-1401 Fluid improves the substantivity of other actives, under both water soaking and soap washing regimes. It is therefore possible to incorporate IOTA-1401 Fluid into skin care products to provide a water repellent, durable film. These actives may include sunscreens, emollients and moisturizers.
IOTA-1401 Fluid can also be used to prepare water resistant or waterproof sunscreen lotions with exceptional spreading characteristics.


FORMULATION TIPS
Emulsion products:
1. IOTA -1401 Fluid can be incorporated directly into the oil phase of the formulation.
2. If temperatures above 60°C (140°F) are being used to melt the oil phase, IOTA-1401 Fluid should be added slowly after the formation of the emulsion, and below 50°C (122°F), using a high shear mixer.
Non-emulsion products:
It is advisable to add the cosmetic ingredients to the silicone and not vice versa as often ultra-high molecular weight dimethiconol is insoluble with the cosmetic ingredients.


Application
