Behenyl amido-amine available in an easy to handle flake form. It can be neutralized with a variety of acids, e.g., citric, lactic,to form a cationic amine salt. Mackine® 601 provides the conditioning properties to creme rinses, finishing rinses or conditioners. The major advantage the amine salts offer over quaternary ammonium compounds is that they can be rinsed more easily from the hair, thus reducing the possibility of surfactant buildup. When blended with the proper co-emulsifier, e.g., cetyl alcohol, PEG 400 distearate, both pearled or opaque type conditioners can be developed.
