Liquid starch-based hair conditioner
Intensive development with chemically modified starches showed, that different modifications of Amylose generate distinct effects in hair care formulations. As a conclusion of hundreds of performance tests a raw material that unifies the most important properties of a good conditioner was developed.
symbio® quat stands for:
- Easy handling in the laboratory and in production
- Versatile film building performances
- Optimum performance according to the condition of skin & hair
- Natural raw material with chemical modification to achieve the best performance
In performance tests with many hair care formulations, it became obvious, that symbio® quat with its patented combination of two very different molecular species exhibits a much better performance than individual conditioning agents: one highly quaternized amylose with a strong affinity to skin & hair, small enough to fit into irregularities on the surface of hair and one larger Amylose species to cover the remaining free space but with lower quaternization grade, making it easily removable.
