Cutissential 18-MEA Series
CUTISSENTIAL BEHENYL 18-MEA* and CUTISSENTIAL 18-MEA 40* are quaternized derivatives of 18-Methyl Eicosanoic Acid (18-MEA), the primary lipid of the hair surface. Human hair contains a thin, protective layer of lipids covalently bound to the cuticle and is comprised primarily of 18-MEA. Chemical treatment or environmental stress (e.g., exposure to sunlight), even everyday grooming, can remove part or all of these lipids, making hair unmanageable, less healthy-looking, and more susceptible to further damage. CUTISSENTIAL BEHENYL 18-MEA and CUTISSENTIAL 18-MEA 40 were developed as a means of replenishing this important lipid. CUTISSENTIAL BEHENYL 18-MEA is ideal for conditioning and treatment systems and CUTISSENTIAL 18-MEA 40 is readily incorporated into surfactant systems and can used where a liquid is preferred.

CUTISSENTIAL 18-MEA 40 and CUTISSENTIAL BEHENYL 18-MEA are quaternized derivatives of 18-Methyl Eicosanoic Acid (18-MEA), the primary lipid of the hair surface. On the hair’s surface, the thin layer of lipids (including 18-MEA) protects the hair from damage caused by chemical treatments, environmental stress and everyday grooming, which can strip the hair of these lipids and leave it unmanageable, dull or prone to more significant damage. The CUTISSENTIAL Range was developed as a means of replenishing 18-MEA and helping the hair to regain or retain its healthy appearance.
