    Polyquaternium-10 is a powerful, water-soluble conditioner that leaves hair and skin with a lasting softness and hydration.Polyquaternium-10 is a cationic, water soluble conditioner which is commonly used in shampoos and body washes. It can be used to strengthen damaged hair and is compatible with a wide range of surfactants. Polyquaternium-10 is an excellent cationic conditioner for hair and skin. It is especially useful in surfactant based systems such as shampoo and shower gel and is perfect for use in spray on, leave in hair conditioners. Polyquaternium-10 is a very good detangler and provides slip for easier wet-combing. In addition it will add softness and shine to dry hair. Often added at the oil phase of a cosmetic formulation.


    With good performances of thickening, colloid stability, antistatic and controlled conditioning, Polyquaternium-10 enable the formulation of clear surfactant-based products with no build-up on hair, which can significantly restore the plump and healthy elasticity of the hair. Polyquaternium-10 impart skin moisture and lubricity, as well as reduce skin irritation caused by surfactants. They also provide aesthetic benefits like improved wet comb,detangling and elegant after-feel. Polyquaternium-10 is recommended for shampoo, conditioner, body wash, facial cleanser, liquid soaps, lotion and cream.
