Incroquat Behenyl 18-MEA

INCI: behentrimonium methosulfate
(and) quaternium-33 (and) cetyl alcohol

Applications: conditioners for aging,
weathered, permed or color-treated
hair, leave-on and conventional conditioners,
nourishing and treatment-type
products, styling products, heat-activated
products, ethnic maintenance

Use levels: 1-5%

Comments: A fatty quaternized derivative
of 18-methyl eicosanoic acid (18-MEA),
the primary lipid of the hair surface.
Product replenishes lipid surface
of hair, makes hair more hydrophobic,
improves wet and dry combing, repairs
surface damage, protects against environmental
stress and adds lubricity
and shine.

In combing studies on bleached hair,
Incroquat Behenyl 18-MEA dramatically
reduced the peak load and total
work of wet and dry combing. Hair
fibers also showed a 15 [degrees] increase in
contact angle, indicating that the hair
had become more hydrophobic after
treatment with Incroquat Behenyl 18-MEA.

Hair that has been chemically-treated
or mechanically stressed is often
lacking 18-MEA. This makes it unmanageable,
less healthy-looking and more
susceptible to environmental damage.
It is expected to help restore the 18-MEA
that is lost from the hair surface.
Product is approved for use in Europe.
