Water Soluble (No Palm Oil)
Honeyquat is a water-soluble, naturally derived humectant suitable for use in your DIY skin and hair care products. It is an excellent addition as it draws moisture (as all humectants do) to help your skin and hair stay hydrated all day long. It is especially helpful during hot Australian summers, and cold and windy winters. Honeyquat is NOT sticky and does not leave your hair sticky!
Honeyquat offers substantivity and thickening to emulsions and cleansers together with a smoothness, and will not reduce foam or lather in anionic or non-ionic surfactant systems.
Honeyquat is best added during the cool-down phase (final phase) of processing though it can be added to the water phase too.
