LexFeel N5 (Natural Cyclomethicone Alternative)
LexFeel N5 (formerly knows as Luxglide N5) is a 100% natural and sustainable emollient that has the sensory feel of cyclomethicone and dimethicone. It is ecocertified and readily biodegradable. LexFeel N5 is suitable, as an alternative to cyclomethicone, for improving skin-feel in creams and lotions, as well as enhancing shine and texture in hair care such as conditioners, anti-frizz, and styling products. In natural formulations, it can be used to reduce the greasiness of natural oils. It can also be used for stick and roll-on antiperspirants and for foundations and hot pour cosmetics.
This silicone-free alternative to cyclomethicone takes a few minutes to evaporate. Once fully evaporated, there should be no greasy after touch, making it ideal for leave on skin care products. Test your final product to insure optimal performance. Protect clothing and work area when mixing.
