Beautiful healthy looking hair
Shine is the first impression of hair health and it is one of the most popular hair attributes that consumers are trying to emulate. Natural shine on the hair relates to cuticle health - the smoother the hair cuticle, the better alignment of hair fibers on the head and ultimately more shine. Shine can be further enhanced with technologies with high refractive indices, such as Croda's unique emollient esters:
Crodamol STS: Multifunctional alternative to silicone that possesses characteristics similar to silicone, such and feel and shine boosting benefits. Also reduces the cuticle angle on the hair fiber, resulting in a smoother, shinier surface.
Crodamol SFX: A new patented ester that contributes phenomenal feel to formulations. Improves shine and smoothness of the hair. Can be used as a replacement for D5 in many types of formulations.
