It is globally available for use in personal care and cosmetic formulations and Ideal for skincare, color cosmetic, sun care, hair care and formulations . Primarily works as a solvent, and secondarily as a viscosity decreasing (reducing thickness) agent.

A very wide variety of actives can be formulated using DMI, and a broad range of formulation types can be readily achieved, including spray mists, light emulsions or milks, solutions, ointments, pastes, solids, gels, lotions, creams, transdermal patches, aerosols, towelettes, and many others. For most skin care applications, the recommended use level for dimethyl isosorbide ranges from 5% to 50% in aqueous systems (e.g., gels, lotions, creams, etc.).
