INOLEX introduces breakthrough technology

The two products are 100% natural amino-acid based cationic ingredients: AminoSensyl HC and AminoSensyl SC

INOLEX is introducing two breakthrough products, AminoSensyl HC and AminoSensyl SC, to its 100% Natural Amino Lipid Technology Platform.

The revolutionary ingredients debut at in-cosmetics Global 2019 Paris, April 2-4, where the company’s team of technical experts and formulators will be providing personalized demos of the technology.

Both products are part of INOLEX’s patented AminoSensyl range, a portfolio of next generation conditioning ingredients ideal for the natural products marketplace. The amino-acid based, 100% natural, eco-friendly, and high performance systems are based on sustainable green chemistry principles—and offer the benefits of being petrochemical-free; palm-free; quat-free1; readilybiodegradable (OECD 301B); non-GMO; and free from animal testing. Each product is optimized for its respective category.

AminoSensyl HC is a pre-neutralized, natural hair care active system that provides higher performance and ease of formulation in hair conditioning & treatment products. The system contains Brassicyl Valinate Esylate, an amino lipid derived from valine amino acid, which has a non-quat cationic charge for hair substantivity and a better aquatic toxicity profile than traditional conditioning or strengthening cationic surfactants.

AminoSensyl HC delivers significant strengthening, conditioning, smoothness, and definition in hair applications.

AminoSensyl SC is a natural formulation system designed for all-natural, luxury skin care products that are gentle to skin and eyes. The patented amino lipid technology enables self-emulsifying formulations that stabilize high oil loads and deliver a soft, velvety aesthetic. The system combines the primary active cationic structuring agent, Brassicyl Valinate Esylate, with the nonionic structuring agents, Brassica Alcohol and Brassica Glycerides, in an optimized ratio for ease of formulation.

“INOLEX continues to be the only source of 100% natural and cationic (quat-free) conditioning agents in the market. The AminoSensyl range of premium products checks off all the boxes of desired benefits, including differentiated aesthetics, a safe environmental profile, and 100% naturality for brands seeking to deliver efficacy and sustainability to consumers,” said Rocco Burgo, Chief Scientist at INOLEX.

Both systems are optimized to eliminate the learning curve of formulating cationic surfactants as the primary emulsifier, thus providing an easy-to-formulate benefit in finished products. The following certifications are pending for the AminoSensyl range of products: USDA BioPreferred, COSMOS, and NSF/ANSI 305.
