MIRASIL® CM 4 volatile silicone fluid is a low viscosity, fast spreading and quickly evaporating silicone cosmetic additive.  It provides transient emolliency to hair and skin.  It has unique sensory characteristics – light smooth dry feel and slip with non-oily and non-tacky after feel. 

MIRASIL® CM 4 is comprised of cyclotetrasiloxane.  It is considered a non-Volatile Organic Compound according to U.S. EPA.  Another appealing attribute of MIRASIL® CM 4 is high miscibility with silicones and non-silicone emollients such as hydrocarbons, esters, natural oils and alcohols.  This is due to the balance of silicone soluble portion and organic soluble portion (see solubility profile) and molecular flexibility.

MIRASIL® CM 4 is generally used in combination with other ingredients to achieve desired benefits in cosmetics.  It may be used directly as a cosmetic additive in personal care products or it may be used as an intermediate to create high performance ingredient blends which are used in personal care formulations.  The inherent emolliency characteristics -spreadability, sensory and volatility-are perceived in cosmetic formulations when use MIRASIL® CM 4 in both versions.
