Ingredient Benefits
Cetearyl Alcohol Cetearyl alcohol is an emulsifier. In creams and lotions, it supports the main emulsion system and gives texture to the product. In conditioners, it creates a thickening effect. We use it about 1%.
Glycerin For natural hair, it is known to prevent hair from breaking during combing.
Isohexadecane Isohexadecane is a branched chain hydrocarbon with 16 carbons; it is a component of petroleum; it's used as a skin-conditioning agent in personal care products.
Isododecane Isododecane is a hydrocarbon ingredient most often used as an emollient in skin care products. Thanks to its low viscosity and density, it has a high spreadability, which makes it especially ideal for any lotion-based product. Isododecane leaves a weightless feeling on the skin and evaporates easily.
Stearamidopropyl As it is a surfactant, it can to some extent help blend the oil and water components of conditioner.
Dimethylamine Dimethylamine is a fatty mine salt, used as a hair care ingredient used as a conditioning and anti-static agent in shampoos and conditioners, and is also sometimes used for its luminescent, pearl-like properties.
Essence This is used primarily for fragrance purposes.
Dicetyldimonium Chloride This is used as an antistatic agent, hair conditioning agent, surfactant, and its emulsifying properties.
Panthenol Hair care products that use this ingredient are said to have enhanced moisturization effects and add thickness or body to the hair.
Argania Spinosa This is a valuable oil which contains exceptionally high levels of vitamin E and rich natural moisturisers.
Kernal Oil Kernal oil is an essential skin conditioning agent.
Hydrolyzed Keratin When applied to the hair, keratin's properties are absorbed, thus improving the hair's texture, shine, elasticity, and strength.
Cyclopentasiloxane Its ability to impart a wet and silky look makes it an ideal candidate in hair products, both rinse-off and leave-on ones. It’s particularly useful in hair conditioners because it provides a silky feel without weighing the hair down with greasy residue. Because of its water-thin consistency.
Dimethicone Dimethicone forms a film on the hair which smoothes down the cuticle. It forms a film on the hair which smoothes down the cuticle. It lubricates the hair and is thought to contribute to easier wet combing (i.e less friction). In hair serum, for thermal processing, dimethicone is a heat protectant
Quaternium-91 This is an essential hair conditioning agent.
Cetrimonium Cetrimonium is the mainstay of hair conditioners. It works in a very simple way. Damaged hair has an electric charge. This is why you get flyway hair. The hair shafts are literally repelling one another. Conditioners work by neutralising that charge and replacing it with a lubricious layer of loveliness.
Methosulfate Methosulfate is basically considered to be the most promising hair detangling ingredient ever; it is also considered to not only be effective but also safe and mild to use.
Benzophenone-4 Benzophenone-4 provides excellent conditioning, detangling, and texture.
NMF50 NMF50 is a new quickly absorbing moisturizer. In personal care products, it can rapidly improve the water content of hair and skin, promote cell activity, keep the moisture and smooth of skin, prevent the loss of water in hair and skin.
Citric Acid Citric Acid isn't used because of the smell. Fragrances are added for that purpose. It has a two-fold reason for addition. Shampoos usually are at pH 5.5 because at slightly acidic pH the scales on a hair follicle lay flat making the hair feel smooth and look shiny. Citric acid is used to adjust the pH down to 5.5 (ish). It is a fairly weak acid which makes the adjustment easier. it also has a small amount of preservative action. Citric acid as opposed to any other acid will prevent bacterial growth.
Diazolidinyl Urea Diazolidinyl urea is typically found in the form of a fine white powder that is used for its preservative properties largely in cosmetic products. It is a protection against yeast, bacteria, and molds that cause spoilage.
Iodopropynyl Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate (IPBC) is a non-formaldehyde releasing chemical based on iodine. It is effective against fungus and bacteria and can be combined with diazolidinyl urea or parabens to create a broad spectrum preservative.
