Varisoft EQ 65

INCI: Distearoylethyl Dimonium Chloride (and) Cetearyl Alcohol

White to off-white pastilles

Overview

Varisoft EQ 65 is a green, readily biodegradable cationic or positively charged ester quat derived from stearic acid and combined with cetearyl alcohol to act as a thickener and conditioning agent for emulsions and hair care products.

Hair care products and lotions made with Varisoft EQ 65 are rich and creamy with the distinctive dry, powdery skin feel of cationic emulsifiers. They are substantive and conditioning to skin and hair, while improving wet detangling and combing, and offering superior dry combing and hair feel.

Varisoft EQ 65 can be used as the primary positively charged ingredient for hair care products such as leave in conditioners, rinse off conditioners, hair masks, and intense treatments, as well as an emulsifier for lotions, creams, and body butters in which you want a green, biodegradable product with a less greasy and smooth skin feel with low tackiness.
Hair care products made with 2% Varisoft EQ 65 offer excellent rinse-ability, increased ease of styling, and increased gloss when compared to 2% Behentrimonium Chloride, and increased hair volume, bounce, dry and wet feel along with dry and wet combing compared to 2% Cetrimonium Chloride. Compared to alkyl quats like Behentrimonium Methosulfate or Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, conditioners made with Varisoft EQ 65 weigh hair down less.
