Effect of EGMS on deposition of amodimethicone from shampoo with cationic guar
This shampoo formula AAll ingredients in active percentage
Xanthan gum 0.2%
Cationic guar 0.1%
Viscosity ~5k cstFormula B has same ingredients with extra 0.6% EGMS as pearlizer.
10 people have used these samples and all of them including me felt that the conditioning effect of both samples are different. Except me no one knew what is inside each formula.
Mostly men liked the conditioning effect from formula A while women liked formula B more. I felt that from formula A more amodimethicone was deposited in hair and EGMS reduced the deposition of amodimethicone. But it was just my feeling from when the hair was dry.
From this experiment i am convinced that EGMS effects the conditioning properties at least in formula like this.
1. Does EGMS effect the conditioning properties of shampoo or some shampoo formulas like this or it is just our imagination?
2. When a shampoo has cationic guar and amodimethicone, does EGMS reduce or increase the deposition of amodimethicone or it has no effect on deposition of amodimethicone or dimethicone?
