Follow-up your shampoo routine with this Conditioner Rinse with Agenajel 20.383!

The formulation features AGENAJEL 20.383 which is a cook-up starch. It has to be heated up (gelatinized) in an aqueous phase (water) for thickening effect – but it has a lower gelatinization temperature (~ 60°C) than native starches (~ 80°C). AGENAJEL 20.383 shows excellent stability against heat, acid, shear, freezing, and thawing. It is ideal for use as a thickener in shampoos, face wash, creams, and lotions.

The 100% active ingredient provides superior manageability, lubricity, and softness to the hair.
