Try the leave-in conditioner formula below!
Ready-to-mix deep hair conditioner consisting of two quaternary conditioners and an emulsifier. Off-white powder, typical odour. Not soluble in water but forms dispersion.
INCI: Cetearyl alcohol, behentrimonium chloride, Polyquaternium 37
Hair care : 2.0 - 10.0%
Lotions & creams: 0.5 - 8.0%
Use: Add 3-10% to lukewarm or warm water and add up to 10% of emollients (e.g. plant oils or hydrocarbons) and blend well (with a stick blender). Typically, 5% of ICE Hair Restore is enough but for making a deep-restoring hair mask >5% may be required. For external use only. When formulating a spray-on leave-in conditioner, 1 or 2% is preferred for a looser product.
ICE conditioner like BTMS-50, it’s one of the easiest conditioners to use because it’s both an emulsifier and conditioner in one. Unlike BTMS-50, you can make a conditioner at room temperature without heating the water! In that way, it has a major advantage over BTMS-50 with regard to the formulation process.
It can be processed using cold water, but using hot water should be enough to melt and form a conditioner right at your workspace. These are called “instant cold emulsions”. You will have to use a stick blender to ensure proper formation.
ICE Conditioner has a balance between its oil-loving (lipophilic) and water-loving (hydrophilic) properties, creating a good viscosity.
Applications: Hair rinses, hair conditioners, hair masks.
