Universal Conditioning Agent from Evonik

July 15, 2011

Abil T Quat 60 is ideal for hair care formulations.

Silicone Quaternium-22 (trade name: Abil T Quat 60) from Evonik represents a universally applicable conditioning agent with outstanding conditioning features: easy detangling, smooth wet comb and superior feel, according to the company.

Verified by a new study performed together with TRI/Princeton, Silicone Quaternium-22 also provides efficient protection against hair fiber breakage. The product is effective out of conditioner as well as out of shampoo formulations. Together with its additional benefits like superior skin feel and good foam properties as well as excellent processability, strong reduction of combing forces, heat protection properties, and improved color wash-fastness of dyed hair, Silicone Quaternium-22 ultimately is a premium and at the same time easy to use conditioning agent.
