GREENQUAT® BT is a patented 100% plant-derived copolymer with high cationic charge derived from sugar beet. It can flexibly replace synthetic conditioning ingredients (ammonium chloride derivatives, hydroxypropyltrimonium, silicone and polyquaternium derivatives) commonly used in haircare applications.
GREENQUAT® BT is water soluble and specifically developed for improved compatibility and transparency in anionic surfactant systems. It delivers excellent moisturization, smoothing and anti-frizz effect and is even capable of improving the quality of the foam which appears more creamy, soft and shiny.
GREENQUAT® BT is the ideal solution both for skincare and haircare products for children, it is very gentle and does not have the typical unpleasant smell of amines.
