Cannabis-Derived Sustainable Conditioning
ProCondition™ Sativa is a multifunctional hair conditioning agent and emulsifier derived from Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil. As a hair conditioning agent, it has comparable performance to Cetrimonium Chloride (CTAC). As a primary emulsifier, it builds formulation stability by formation of lamellar liquid crystals.
- Non-quat cationic conditioning
- Replacement for CTAC or SAPDMA
- Comparable wet and dry combing to CTAC and SAPDMA
- Creates lamellar gel networks
- Versatility in viscosity building
- Primary emulsifier
- Non-toxic to aquatic life
- Non-irritating to skin or eyes
- Readily biodegradable
- Designed with green chemistry

One Step Energy-Saving Manufacturing Process
The synthesis of ProCondition™ Sativa employs a novel one-step transamidation instead of the traditional amidoamine multi-step process. This saves energy in manufacture estimated to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 642 MB for every 1300 MT amidoamine produced.

The Science Behind
ProCondition™ Sativa is an amidoamine with a predominantly C18 fatty acyl composition.
Fatty Acyl Composition
0 - 9% Palmitoyl (C16)
89 - 100% Stearoyl (C18)
0 - 3% Oleoyl + Linoleoyl + Linolenoyl (C18:1 - 18:3)
The amine functionality is cationically charged below pH 6.5. The cationic group binds to anionically charged hair fibers. The C18 tail group provides lubricity and conditioning benefits.
In emulsions, ProCondition™ Sativa 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.
