GreenTAC, a patented natural cationic conditioner, enhances hair manageability, appearance, and texture while effectively competing with synthetic alternatives. It also functions as a primary emulsifier, creating stable emulsions with long-lasting liquid crystal structures. Notably, it reduces wet combing force significantly, comparable to CTAC.

Compared to quaternary ammonium salts like CTAC, GreenTAC stands out as an eco-friendly alternative. It is readily biodegradable and non-toxic for aquatic life, in contrast to CTAC, which is harmful to aquatic life with long-lasting effects. Additionally, while CTAC faces usage restrictions in the EU due to its skin-irritating properties, GreenTAC’s non-irritating nature allows for broader applications, including professional-grade and solid formulations.

A sensory panel has confirmed no significant differences between CTAC and GreenTAC on hair, except for GreenTAC’s higher affinity, potentially leading to increased substantivity.
