|SilSense® Q-Plus Silicone
Use: SilSense® Q-Plus silicone is a patented, quaternary silicone compound which combines the conditioning benefits of traditional silicones and cationic quaternary compounds in a single molecule.
SilSense Q-Plus silicone will add conditioning benefits to personal care products, without the stability concerns that may be present with silicones or the irritancy that is often associated with quaternary ammonium compounds.
SilSense Q-Plus silicone is a 100% active, water soluble product that is prepared by the reaction of a hydroxyl containing silicone polymer with a quaternized alkylamido dimethylamine.
This novel silicone compound features a silicone backbone with a quaternary nitrogen pendant group. It will impart multifunctional benefits to many water based personal care formulations.
Unlike traditional silicones, this silicone quarternary compound does not defoam, and can even enhance foaming when used in hair care products. In addition, this type of silicone is water soluble, lending to enhanced ease-of-use in a wide range of shampoos, conditioners, and personal cleansers.
