BASF’s Plantasil® 4V is an economical, tailor-made compound for a strong hair-conditioning effect in shampoos. It provides a significant improvement on wet combing and sensorial performance on different hair types equivalent to those of silicone-containing benchmarks. Even at higher levels of hair damage, Plantasil 4V reduces combing force significantly. These effective properties can also be demonstrated at low surfactant levels.

When it comes to formulation, BASFs new ingredient shows clear benefits: It is easy to use in cold processes and is compatible with all relevant conditioning polymers. The new compound also offers clear solubilization of oils in surfactant bases and has less impact on foam and no stabilization issues, compared with other hair care additives.
