Conditioneze™ 22 polymer INCI Name: Polyquaternium-22

Conditioneze 22 polymer is a highly charged, cationic conditioning copolymer of dimethyl diallyl ammonium chloride and acrylic acid. This water-soluble copolymer is ampholytic and demonstrated excellent stability at extreme pH ranges (2-12).

It is ideally suited for use as a conditioning polymer in shampoos, conditioners and colorant products. Its high pH tolerance makes it ideal for permanent wave and relaxer products. It is compatible with a wide range of anionic, nonionic and cationic surfactants.
