A Low-Cost Complete Conditioning Base from Inolex

May 16, 2011

New ingredient is ideal for hair care formulations.

Hair care formulators can now benefit from Inolex’s new Kerabase LC for making low-cost, high performing hair conditioners. It is a pre-blend system that yields highly stable formulas with the applications properties desired by consumers, according to the company.

Kerabase LC allows customizable products with “one-pot” production. Simply add water and emollient as well as fragrance and actives and your work is done. It uses amidoamine conditioners, avoiding the irritation and environmental problems associated with quats. It is pre-neutralized, making it much easier for formulators and manufacturers to achieve their goals.
