Are amphoteric and non-ionic surfactants capable of removing water-insoluble silicones from hair?
Hi there! In this era of “demonization of some ingredients”, there is an ongoing war against water-insoluble silicones in hair products and there’s little scientific-based information there I could find on this topic.
So I would like to know if amphoteric surfactants like Cocamidopropyl betaine will indeed remove water-insoluble silicones from the hair. Could anybody help me? :smiley:
And what about a nonionic surfactant like Decyl Glucoside? Are they capable of removing the water-insoluble silicones from the hair?
