Cyclomethicone Testing, Part 2 2

Last week I started my Cyclomethicone Testing and I told you I would continue to post my results as I tested.

Today, I tested Earth, Plumberry Spice, Rose, Soothing Chamomile, Toasted Coconut, and Tahitian Vanilla Fragrance Oils. Plumberry Spice and Tahitian Vanilla Fragrance Oils were not compatible as the fragrance remained in beads and did not disperse at all. Soothing Chamomile has a faint cloudy appearance, and therefore is not compatible with Cyclomethicone.

About Andee

Director of Happiness. I'm a thirty-something soap snob. I've grown up with handmade soaps, and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps, and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!

    Thanks for doing this R&D for us. All the scents you tested that were incompatable with the cyclomethicone are the scents I wanted to use in room sprays. I would have wasted time and product in the testing of each of these. Do you have an alternative to the cyclomethicone?

    I made a change earlier today. The Toasted Coconut is compatible, but the Plumberry Spice and Tahitian Vanilla were not compatible. I would recommend a Polysorbate/water blend, perfumer’s alcohol, or light oils such as Fractionated Coconut Oil or Colorless Jojoba.

    I hope this helps!
