Love to work with honey and all it’s superfood qualities, but don’t want all the sticky mess.
Honeyquat is a cationic (positively charged) quaternary polymer conditioning agent, which means it is attracted to the negatively charged hair strands (or neutral skin), and will absorb and cling on to the surface, and resist being easily rinsed off. This action gives the feel of enduring moisturization and deep conditioning, leaving hair with a sleek, glossy shine and skin a dewy glow. Lubricity will also be boosted and static control increased, which will help reduce friction and pull during wet comb-outs, and frizzy fly-aways from dry brushing. Honeyquat will add a smooth and luxuriously thick feel to formula emulsions, while delivering long lasting, deep hydration to skin and body care products.
Appearance: Pale straw yellow liquid showing clear to slightly hazy.
Shelf Life: 1 year
Recommended Usage Rate: 2% - 5% used in the cooling phase of formulation. Carbomers can be added to form clear gels, but they must be pre-neutralized first, and the resulting normal loss of viscosity will need to be offset by using 10% more carbomer by weight.
Ingredient Function: Humectant/thickener/conditioning agent/antistatic agent.
Solubility: Soluble in water and aqueous alcohol (60/40), and soluble at 1% in ammonium myreth sulfate (60%), cocoamidopropyl betaine and propylene glycol. It is not soluble in oils and esters.
How to Store: Store in a cool, dry area away from heat source and strong oxidizing agents. Keep container closed.
Warnings: Pregnant or lactating people, or those with known medical conditions should consult with a physician prior to using product.
