Silquat® 4016: Silicone Quat for Shampoos and Conditioners

Tech Paper | Supplied by Siltech

Silquat® 4016 is a synergistic blend of a high molecular weight silicone quaternary compound and cetyltrimethylammonium chloride. The unique blend translates to excellent water solubility and the chemistries yield manageable yet substantive hair. The product is non-irritating so it is ideal for use in sensitive applications such as baby shampoo.

Effective conditioning agents can often add to increased cost to formulations, but Silquat® 4016 breaks that trend. Effective use levels are often in the low single-digit percent by weight of the total formulation, yielding minimal cost impact.
