Quaternized Honey (aka honeyquat)
Monthly Web Special

Made from natural honey, our quaternized honey is an excellent humectant, binding environmental moisture to itself, thereby increasing the moist- urization of skin and hair. Moisture uptake studies show that quaternized honey has twice the moisturizing ability of glycerin. It has the ability to soften and plasticize the skin by adding critical moisture. On hair, it leaves a clean, conditioned feeling, enhancing shine and luster due to its smoothing properties, especially on damaged hair. Quaternized honey will help to improve wet-combability of the hair and reduce and eliminate static build-up. Use in Luxury Lotion or Emu & Shea Cream formula. Clear to slightly hazy, pale straw colored liquid. Recommended usage is 2% to 5%. INCI: Hydroxypropyl-trimonium Honey

Preservatives & Antioxidants

~NEW~ Jeecide CAP-5 ~NEW~

This easy to use, clear liquid preservative is both free of parabens and formaldehyde donors, and is toxicologically safe for use. With broad spectrum capabilities, it is effective against bacteria, yeast, and mold, and is compatible with anionic, cationic, and non-ionic surfactants and emulsifiers. It is equally suitable for use in both rinse-off and leave-on products, and is effective in difficult to preserve water/silicone emulsions. Approved for use in both the United States and Europe.

It is recommended not to add to a product at temperatures exceeding 158-167°F for extended periods of time. For emulsion products, because of its excellent compatibility with most ingredients, incorporation during the cool-down phase is preferred. Jeecide CAP-5 is soluble or dispersible in most non-polar materials, however, it is not water soluble for highly aqueous systems. The addition of a co-solvent, coupling agent, or surfactant (eg. polysorbate 20) in a 1:1 ratio will make it water soluble to obtain a clear system.

Effective in a pH range of 3-6.5. Usage rate is 0.5% - 1.5%. INCI:Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl Glycol (and) Potassium Sorbate (and) Water (and) Hexylene Glycol
