Cyclotetrasiloxane belongs to the group of siloxanes and is a part of organosilicon (organic silicon) compounds and is termed as one of the cyclomethicones. Cyclotetrasiloxane is a cyclic compound with 4 silicon and 4 oxygen atoms, which are alternatively bonded.
Cyclotetrasiloxane is an odorless, tasteless and colorless compound. Cyclotetrasiloxane finds applications in deodorants, skincare lotions and creams, hair care formulations, and in make-up products. Due to its volatile nature, cyclotetrasiloxane (or D4) evaporates, imparting a soft and silky feel on the skin. It also does not leave any oily residue, giving a non-greasy feel.
Cyclotetrasiloxane is considered a non-VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) by the U.S. Environment Protection Agency (U.S. EPA). Cyclotetrasiloxane can be directly used as an additive for the production of cosmetic products or as an intermediate to create high-quality blends for the formulation of personal care products.
Cyclotetrasiloxane can also directly be used as a rubber treating agent. Cyclotetrasiloxane is also used as a reactant for the production of other cyclomethicones such as cyclopentasiloxane (D5) and cyclohexasiloxane (D6). However, cyclotetrasiloxane is considered to be bio-accumulative and is inherently toxic to non-human organisms, especially aquatic life, due to its poor degradability. Cyclotetrasiloxane, in Europe, has been classified as an endocrine disruptor and presumably affects the fertility of the soil.

Factors such as growing awareness regarding beauty and cosmetic products, changing lifestyle of the consumers, and the growing disposable income of the middle-class population are expected to drive the growth of the market in heavily populated and developing countries.
Owing to its toxicity, several environmental policies around the globe pose a threat to the growth of the market for cyclotetrasiloxane. For instance, recently in 2018, the European Commission’s Regulation, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) has published in the Official Journal to the European Union that cyclotetrasiloxane (D4) and cyclopentasiloxane (D5) in wash-off cosmetic products shall not be placed in the market in a concentration equal to or greater than 0.1% by weight of either substance, after 31 January 2020.
However, countries such as Canada have concluded that all the three siloxanes, including cyclotetrasiloxane, are safe for human health. The Canadian Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association (CCTFA) is working with the government to plan risk management measures for the political and environmental concerns regarding cyclotetrasiloxane.
Nowadays, the manufacturers and new emerging players are focusing on products that are environment friendly and matching the environmental regulations. This involves mixtures of botanical oils, waxes, and less harmful synthetic materials.
