THE WHAT? Inolex has launched ProCondition Sativa (Cannabisamidopropyl Dimethylamine) – a new sustainable conditioning ingredient derived from Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil.
THE DETAILS The hemp-based ingredient is designed for hair, skin, and body care and is said to deliver performance as both a conditioning agent and as an emulsifier with multiple functional and performance benefits.
According to Inolex, “As a non-quat cationic hair conditioning agent, ProConditionTM Sativa has comparable performance to Cetrimonium Chloride (CTAC) while being safer for skin and eyes, and non-toxic to aquatic life. As a primary emulsifier, the ingredient builds formulation stability by formation of lamellar liquid crystals and provides versatility in viscosity building.”
THE WHY? The new ingredient is said to expand the company’s ProCondition quat-free conditioning technology platform, a range of consciously designed ingredients based on the principles of green chemistry and manufactured using the company’s patented energy-saving synthesis process.
Lisa Gandolfi, VP Marketing at Inolex, says, “We see the rise of consumer groups aligned with naturality, wellness, and sustainability, converging on sustainably made, cannabis-derived products. ProConditionTM Sativa’s hemp-based cationic is ideal for brands designing CBD or hemp-based products for hair or skincare with a focus on sustainable and plant-powered materials.”
