What it is
Dimethyl Ether is a colorless liquid.
What it does
Dimethyl Ether is used as a propellant in aerosol products.
It is also used to reduce the thickness of products and as a solvent to prevent the other ingredients in a formula from separating.
Dimethyl Ether can cause irritations and be slightly toxic when inhaled. Although it disperses quickly into the hair, which means that we are exposed only to minuscule quantities of it, Dimethyl Ether has been banned in Japan.
