Honeyquat (Paraben Free) is a naturally derived low viscosity quaternized conditioning agent made from honey with excellent moisture binding capabilities (far more powerful than glycerin) for use on skin and hair in both leave-on and rinse-off applications. This water-soluble humectant and moisturizer is made by reacting honey with a low molecular weight quaternary derivative.
Recommended usage level: 2 - 5%. add to water phase or finished emulsion cool down phase (below 50 degrees C).

my only concern is the smell - not nice at all.
i had a problem with the lack of information that came with the product - not sure if it was because its new ... but one very important piece of information i learned the hard way was i should never use honeyquat with xanthan gum in emulsions because it makes it unstable and that as an ingredient in general it needs extra emulsifiers to keep a formula stable! really nice product but needed a lot of experimentation to be able to incorporate it and would have loved more information about it.
