One of three emulsifiers used in our conditioners, milk is an emulsion, and the word emulsion, derived from the Latin word for a milky liquid, is made by crushing almonds in water. Cetearyl Glucoside is a soft waxy substance made from coconut oil and glucose. Emulsifiers allow water and oils to mix and form a stable, creamy emulsion, which provides a means for our nourishing oils to penetrate the hair.
N.B. We do not use any quaternary ammonium compound (QUATS) emulsifiers such as Behentrimonium Methosulfate in our products.
Many natural hair care products do use this and other QUATS, however, we do not believe they are beneficial for you or the environment. Companies will claim they are ‘naturally derived’ from Colza or other natural oils but ‘naturally derived’ does not mean ‘naturally’ arrived once synthesised with chlorine or bromine and ammonia into a QUATS. Simply stated, you will never find a chlorinated or brominated ingredient in our products.
