INCROQUAT™ BEHENYL TMS-50 – Just the Right Touch!
INCROQUAT BEHENYL TMS-50 offers “adjustable” conditioning, allowing formulators to customize their product’s conditioning effects for skin and hair. INCROQUAT BEHENYL TMS-50 forms elegant cationic emulsions, allowing formulators to produce creams and lotions that have a soft, powdery afterfeel, yet it is safe and gentle enough for skin care. INCROQUAT BEHENYL TMS-50 is also a highly effective hair detangler due to the long behenyl (C22) chain and is preferred by panelists in salon evaluations over industry benchmarks.

New Data: Decreasing the Hair Surface Roughness of Bleached Hair with INCROQUAT BEHENYL TMS-50
Hair fibers treated with conditioners containing CRODAZOSOFT DBQ and INCROQUAT BEHENYL TMS-50 were evaluated, and were proven to have much lower surface roughness measurements when compared to untreated control hair fibers.
AFM (Atomic Force Microscopy) images of bleached hair fibers illustrate that both CRODAZOSOFT DBQ and INCROQUAT BEHENYL TMS-50 deposit well on the hair surface. Surface roughness measurements, however, show that INCROQUAT BEHENYL TMS-50 had a much lower value compared to both the control and CRODAZOSOFT DBQ. Thus, INCROQUAT BEHENYL TMS-50 demonstrates better overall deposition on damaged hair.
Mild & Non-Irritating on Skin
INCROQUAT BEHENYL TMS-50 forms elegant cationic emulsions, allowing formulators to produce skin creams and lotions that have a soft, powdery afterfeel and resist rinse-off. It is capable of emulsifying high levels of silicone, an ingredient that is normally extremely difficult to emulsify. Laser Doppler and Visual Erythema studies were conducted to evaluate the irritation on the skin of various quats in water and in emulsions.
INCROQUAT BEHENYL TMS-50 was shown to be non-irritating both when applied to skin in water and formulation.
