    Is there a reason that ClearHance C (Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride) states it is for wash off products, or can I use this in a leave on product as well? At 0.2%

    ClearHance C is Cassia Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, which is not the same as Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, although they are both generally used for the same purpose. One notable difference is that most of the Guar variety will also thicken your formula, while the Cassia kind will not.

    I think that the reason it states it is for rinse-off products is because most of the ingredient’s benefits will be found in this application. However, you should be able to use it in leave-on products. Gold Bond is using Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride in their “Pure Moisture Daily Body & Face Lotion.”
