  • Able to form instant hair conditioning solution upon addition of water and emollients without much heating
  • Can be processed cold (warm water preferred) with proper mixing, but also hot water possible
  • Improves the structure and volume of hair, deeply conditions and easily detangles hair
  • Easy to use: Just add water, emollients, herbal extract, and vitamins and you have a great hair conditioner

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.
