Volatile Fluids

Volatile Fluids

Innospec VOLASIL® fluids are low viscosity cyclic silicones and polydimethylsiloxanes. These products are commonly used in a variety of personal care formulations due to their volatility, non-greasy feel, spreadability and solvency. The volatility and after-feel of these raw materials enable use in almost any application.
