SeraShine® EM 802 is our first emulsion containing both natural oil and dimethicone
Containing organic, deodorised Moroccan argan oil, this emulsion facilitates the incorporation of argan oil into aqueous formulations.
Formulated for damaged hair; SeraShine® EM 802 significantly improves dry combing in shampoo and shows excellent wet combing reduction in conditioners. Smoothing and damage repair are both possible in rinse-off products, thanks to the inclusion of dimethicone. These effects can be seen at addition levels of 2% active emulsion to rinse-off formulations, but usage is recommend in all types of personal care products, at 1 – 6% as supplied.
Argan oil is notoriously unstable at temperatures over 40°C and in UV light, leading to discolouration, odour and viscosity issues. It is also a deep amber colour which can affect the final colour of the formulations. Emulsifying argan oil into a white emulsion ensures a much more stable product without affecting the colour of the formulation.
It is recommended the final pH of surfactant systems is over 5.5.
