ProCondition™ Sativa

Cannabisamidopropyl Dimethylamine

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

Applications:
hair care | conditioners | shampoos | hair treatments | skincare | serums | cleansing | body care | shave & beard

Green Chemistry & Sustainable Life Cycle Highlights:

  • non-toxic to aquatic life
  • non-irritating to skin or eyes
  • energy-saving manufacturing process
  • 82% biobased feedstocks
  • readily biodegradable

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.

Primary Feedstocks

  • Cannabis
  • Petrochemical

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.
