Crosilkquat is based on quaternised silk amino acids, exhibiting excellent substantivity to the hair surface at low concentrations, thereby improving softness, texture and handling characteristics. Silk maintains its prestige through associative connotations of luxury, elegance, smoothness and sheen. Our silk protein derivatives not only satisfy marketing label claims, but offer excellent functional performance benefits to meet the demands of today's hair care products.
