INCI ADOPTED NAME
ProCondition™ 22* is a non-quat conditioning agent with excellent combing performance and superior sustainability profile (83% biobased content). It is cationic (when neutralized), with superior properties compared to cetrimonium chloride, behentrimonium chloride, and stearamidopropyl dimethylamine. The material contains a majority of behenyl (C22) compounds that yield superb dry combability without build-up. Its electrostatic attraction to hair can be tailored by adjusting formulation pH. The lower the pH, the greater the cationic charge. ProCondition™ 22 can be the primary emulsifier to build high viscosity formulations.
