Cationic Hyaluronic Acid

Innovation in the hair-care world

Amik Italia presents Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate, an innovative version of Hyaluronic Acid with a specific conditiong action on the hair.

Hyaluronic Acid is a linear molecula with negative charge and very little interaction with the hair.

Combining it with a cationic group, thanks to a highly technological process, a new ingredient was obtained. And it is a real elisir for the hair.

Because of its structure and positive charge it shows a strong affinity with the hair and its film-forming and conditioning properties are amplified.

A versatile ingredient, compatible with anionic, cationic and non-ionic surfactants, it can be easily used in shampoos, masks, conditioners and styling products.

The use of this ingredient in a formula improves the capacity of the hair of keeping back water with long-lasting effect – up to 12 hours from the application.

Better hydration means better look: the hair appear lucid, soft, disciplined and easier to comb.

Its characteristics make it a suitable ingredient also for eyelash products.

Although not its primary application, it can be used as a moisturizer in skin-care products as well, with an interesting sensorial plus.
