Jeequat NDCS Conditioning Cold Process Emulsifier
Jeequat NDCS, also known as ICE Conditioner, is a cationic Naturally Derived Conditioning System featuring Behenyl Trimethyl Ammonium Chloride at a 21% active quaternary level. This quat ingredient is naturally derived from Rapeseed (Canola) Oil and is based on the primary lipid found on hair surfaces. The other ingredients in this blend are all derived from natural sources - Cetyl Alcohol from vegetable oils, Cocamidopropyl from coconut oil and Sorbitan Laurate from plant fatty acids and sorbitol.
Jeequat NDCS has been hydrophile/lipophile balanced to ensure the highest viscosity, highest conditioning effect and lowest cost for your skin or hair care formulation. For skin care applications it imparts exceptional suspending and emulsification and leaves a soft, smooth feel even after rinsing. For hair care applications, it provides excellent substantive conditioning, wet combing, anti-static properties, detangling, hair softening, suspending and emulsification.
