AminoSensyl™ SC is part of INOLEX’s propriety technology platform of amino lipids.
Building blocks of the amino lipid molecule, Brassicyl Valinate Esylate:
- Valine: amino acid from biofermentation that provides the natural cationic charge
- Brassica alcohol: fatty alcohol from plant oils that contains a hydrophobic carbon chain
Lamellar liquid crystals (LLCs) are formed by the specific ratio of amino lipid to fatty alcohol. These structures can stabilize high oil loads and provide a soft, powdery and non-greasy feel. The microscopy images show the presence of LLCs in the Brassicyl Valinate Esylate - Brassica Alcohol blend.
