Product Overview
INCI Oleth-5 Phosphate

When used as part of a shampoo formulation in combination with cationic guar, Zeniz 4617 improves hair's wet and dry detangling properties and reduces friction, imparting a smooth and silky feel to dry hair. Silicone-free formulations using this product can be made without a suspending agent which saves production time, decreases formulation cost, and decreases the potential for interaction between the cationic conditioning agent and the anionic suspending agent.
