Beraca Launches New Organic Active for Hair Care

June 23, 2008

During its participation at In-Cosmetics 2008, Beraca launched Beracare BBA (BioBehenic Active), a new natural and organic conditioning agent that is Ecocert-certified and rich in behenic acid. It is extracted from pentaclethara macroloba will, a plant from the Amazon Rain Forest.

According to the company, this new ingredient promotes conditioning action, softens feel, improves and facilitates hair combing and increases shine with a continuous film formation. It also helps to promote a greater viscosity in emulsions, promoting stabilization, being compatible with other cationic agents.

Beracare BBA is quaternary-free, non- comedogenic, promoting excellent results on softness, shine and combing properties, both in dry and wet hair, compared or combined with another cationic surfactant. More info: www.beraca.com
