Science Behind

Emulsense™ HC is part of INOLEX’s propriety technology platform of amino lipids.

Building blocks of the amino lipid molecule, Brassicyl Isoleucinate Esylate:

  • Isoleucine: amino acid 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, aid in deposition of the cationic amino lipid on hair, and provide a soft, powdery and non-greasy feel.
