The Science Behind

Brassicamidopropyl Dimethylamine is an amidoamine with a unique C18 - C22 fatty acyl composition.

Fatty Acyl Composition
~34-40% Stearoyl (C18)
~6-14% Arachidoyl (C20)
~45-50% Behenoyl (C22)

The amine functionality is cationically charged below pH 6.5. The cationic group binds to anionically charged hair fibers. The C18 - C22 tail group provides lubricity and conditioning benefits.

In emulsions, Brassicamidopropyl Dimethylamine forms lamellar liquid crystals (LLCs) when combined with fatty alcohol. These structures can stabilize high oil loads and provide a soft, powdery and non-greasy feel.
