Amino Lipids are the next evolution of high performing cationic ingredients that are derived exclusively from renewable sources. Their molecular design incorporates a cationic ammonium head group and biodegradable ester linkage, derived from naturally occurring amino acids, and a lipophilic alkyl tail group derived from vegetable fatty alcohols.
