Aminosensyl HC is a 100% natural quat–free, superior, hair-conditioning ingredient that is easily biodegradable and safe and gentle to humans, as well as non-toxic to aquatic life. It provides deep conditioning properties to the hair and is ideal for hair care products such as conditioners, hair masks, or intense hair repair treatments.

Claims to double hair strength in leave on and rinse off conditioners.

It is an amino-acid based conditioner not based on quats that promises to condition, smooth, and strengthen hair. It’s 100% naturally compliant.  & Hair Colour Protectant.  

  • Non-toxic to aquatic life
  • Non-irritating to skin or eyes
  • Designed with green chemistry

Likewise, it creates rich textures and provides deep moisturization. Furthermore, it is ideal for soft, weightless conditioning that smooths, defines, and strengthens hair.

It has been optimized for use in one pot method, it is also suitable for traditional two pot methods where it can be melted into to the oil phase.

Melting Point:  56C

• Rinse-off daily conditioners: 6-20%

• Deep conditioner and hair masks: 15-20%

• Solid formats:  20 - 90% ie solid conditioner & shampoo bars

• Leave-in conditioners: 6-20%

Optimal at pH < 5.0; the ideal pH range for hair care benefits. Like most cationic ingredients, is generally not compatible with anionic components such as anionic emulsifiers, co-emulsifiers, polymers, etc. • AminoSensyl™ HC is HLB independent.

HLB independent. Additional emulsifiers are typically not required to form a stable emulsion.

Viscosity increasing polymers should not be necessary. Anionic viscosity increasing polymers are not recommended (e.g. xanthan gum, carbomer, etc.). If rheology modification is necessary, cationic polymers or additional fatty alcohol (e.g. brassica alcohol) can be added to increase viscosity.

It's designed for efficient use in a one-pot process.

NOTE: While, AminoSensyl™ HC has been optimized for use in one pot method, it is also suitable for traditional two pot methods where it can be melted into to the oil phase.

    I was not expecting this to be this great! It is ultra softening and lightweight, never building up! It is just different to use, but once you learn to follow the instructions, you are good to go. This is the best emulsifier/conditioner out there.
