Polyquaternium-11 is the polymeric quaternary ammonium salt formed by the reaction of diethyl sulfate and a copolymer of vinyl pyrrolidone and dimethyl aminoethylmethacrylate. It is in the chemical class known as quaternary ammonium compounds (generally referred to as a “Quat”).Polyquaternium-11 is a high viscous aqueous solution,Miscible with water and ethanol,Slightly characteristic odor.Polyquaternium-11 is a cloud, straw-colored film former and anti-static agent.It acts as a conditioning agent and film-former,styling auxiliary.
Key Technical Parameters:
|Appearance||Clear to slight hazy viscous liquid|
|pH Value(as is)||5.0~7.0|
Applications:Polyquaternium-11 provides shine,detangling and de-frizzing benefits to hair conditioners and shampoos by coating the hair in a clear film that adds visible and sensorial volume.
Polyquaternium-11 is a quaternary ammonium compound that forms flexible films with mild conditioning benefits in rinse off and styling applications.Use as a conditioning agent in shampoos and cream or clear rinse conditioners. Provides instant detangling whilst adding volume and body to the hair. It makes the hair easier to comb.Particularly effective in hair styling products, including spray on conditioners and detanglers. Excellent for use with blow drying and straighteners where it can provide thermal protection for the hair.Polyquaternium-11 can be used in skincare products also for improved skin feel. Polyquaternium-11 works well in shaving products, skin creams and lotions, liquid soap and bars of soap.
Polyquaternium-11 is used in hair care like mousses, gels, pump sprays and spritzes. Acts as a conditioning agent and film-former. Offers characteristics such as substantivity, shine and control.Used in hair care like lotions, mousses, gels, sprays, shampoos, in skin care like soaps, shaving foam and body lotion. Acts as a conditioner and styling auxiliary. Polyquaternium-11 pocesses spreading, electrostatic charging preventing and lubricating properties. Offers benefits including stabilized lather, substantivity, wet combability, soft, hold, smooth feel and silky skin feel.
Polyquarternium-11 when used in a foaming product such as a shampoo or shower gel will enhance the foam levels. Polyquaternium-11 is compatible with with non-ionic, anionic and amphoteric surfactants and rheology modifiers. Polyquaternium-11 is excellent combined with carbomer to produce smooth and easily applied gels.Polyquaternium-11 can enhance the stability of surfactant, cream and lotion based formulations.
How to Use:
Polyquaternium-11 is supplied as a viscous liquid, though supplied in a jar for ease of use as the liquid is very thick. Gently warming can help with the usability in formulation.Polyquarternium-11 is readily dissolved in water and thus it is easiest to dissolve into the water stage of formulation. When used in surfactant based formulation we advise adding the Polyquaternium-11 before surfactants for ease of dispersal.When formulating in hot process applications, add to the water phase and disperse. Polyquatenrium-11 is resilient to heat.
