Brassica alcohol and Brassicyl Valinate Esylate) is a positively charged or cationic emulsifier suitable for use in lotions and conditioners. It is a positively charged or cationic emulsifier suitable for use in lotions and conditioners including bars.
It is an amino-acid based conditioner not based on quats that promises to condition, smooth, and strengthen hair. It’s 100% naturally compliant.
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.
