LuxGlide N350 (Natural alternative to Dimethicone)

LuxGlide N350 (Natural alternative to Dimethicone)

Not rated yet

LuxGlide N350 can be used as a natural alternative to dimethicone in cosmetic formulations. LuxGlide N350 adds a smooth, luxurious glide to products while removing the extra greasy feel from butter and oils.

Use this product in skin care formulations such as lotions and body oils, or in hair care products like shampoo bars and conditioners.  It can also be used for stick and roll-on antiperspirants and for foundations and hot pour cosmetics. 

(INCI):  Diheptyl Succinate (and) Capryloyl Glycerin/Sebacic Acid Copolymer

Country Of Origin: United States

Adds Dimethicone properties to handmade care products while keeping products safe and silicone-free.

Popular Products That Use This Ingredient:
Lotions. Conditioners. Hair Care Products,  antiperspirants, and mineral makeup

Physical Form: Pale Yellow Liquid 
Solubility: Soluble in Oil. Not Soluble in Water. 
Country of Origin: United States 

Storage: Room temperature. Airtight container. 
Best Used By: One year from date of purchase.  

Recommended Usage: 0.5-30% added slowly to liquid oils

We have noticed that this product takes slightly longer to absorb than LuxGlide N5 and dimethicone. Once fully absorbed, there should be a non-greasy feel on skin and hair compared to dimethicone.

 Difference between N350 and N5
 
The N350 offers more cushion than the N5 as it’s slightly more viscous, but offers less play time. 
LuxGlide N5 (Natural Cyclomethicone Alternative) is a great addition to stick or roll-on deodorants, antiperspirants, and anti-chafing products as it reduces tackiness, increases slip and glide, absorbs quickly, has a light, non-greasy skin feel with a matte finish. Use it at 5% to 30% in place of other emollients, like soft oils, in your favourite lotion formulas to create everything from light, silky body butters to smooth, ultra-light facial moisturizers. It can be used in anhydrous body oils as a base or in place of heavier or tackier oils, and it can make whipped butters feel lighter and less greasy.  
 
LuxGlide N350 (Natural Dimethicone Alternative) can also be used at 5% to 30% in place of other emollients in emulsified or anhydrous products. If used alone in hair care products, it can increase shine and film form to reduce frizzies.  
In hair and beard care products, a combination of the two can be used to reduce frizz, increase shine, form films, and moisturize. Although they can be used in rinse-off conditioners, I’d save them for leave in or shine enhancing products starting at up to 5% in the heated oil phase, if there is one. A combination of the two is great as a base for anhydrous products, too.

    If you are familiar with Naturderm IL, would this be a good substitute? Thank you!

    I do not believe it is. Luxglide N350 (INCI): Diheptyl Succinate (and) Capryloyl Glycerin/Sebacic Acid Copolymer which is a dimethicone replacement whereas Naturderm it is: Isoamyl Laurate, Isoamyl Cocoate which is a Replacement for Cyclomethicone They seem to similar uses from what I read. Cyclomethicone – a shorter cyclic molecule which has many of the same properties of dimethicone except that it evaporates while dimethicone does not.
