Taking the eco-way 

In hair conditioners, AMIDET® APA-22 works as a cationic surfactant. Moreover, AMIDET® APA-22 can be incorporated as a non-ionic surfactant, working as a conditioning and color protection agent in 2-in-1 shampoos and as a gelling and hair protection agent in hair coloring creams.

This multifunctional and high performance profile, together with good biodegradation and low aquatic toxicity compared to currently used cationic surfactants, make AMIDET® APA-22 a very interesting eco-friendly alternative for the hair care market.

The conditioning performance of AMIDET® APA-22 is superior to that of commonly used cationic surfactants, providing a superior sensory profile and improved combing force reduction in hair conditioners.
