KimaCell® HEC HS300 Hydroxyethyl cellulose is a conditioner for protecting the skin and hair cuticle, and can protect the cuticle from physical and chemical damage and stimulation. The light transmittance of hydroxyethyl cellulose after cationic modification is significantly increased. The hydroxypropylation of cationic hydroxyethyl cellulose can increase the light transmittance of the product on the basis of cationic cellulose. When propylene oxide When the added amount of hydroxyethyl cellulose is 30%, the transmittance can reach more than 90%.

KimaCell® HEC HS300 Hydroxyethyl cellulose mainly used in hair care products to increase the softness of hair.
HEC forms a uniform, transparent and glossy film that may improve hair appearance. It also has a moderate affinity for attachment and does not accumulate. In addition to the direct conditioning effect brought by the cationic cellulose polymer, it has a synergistic effect with silicone oil in the process of absorbing the hair's negative charge. Cationic cellulose can prevent the deposition of silicone oil, will not make the hair lose its body, will not produce a greasy feeling, and achieve an ideal and comprehensive conditioning effect. Cationic derivatives of HEC are widely used in hair care shampoos.
