  • How does CAPB provide hair conditioning in Shampoo with SLES @ pH 5

    Posted by Abdullah on December 20, 2022 at 5:23 am

    In this shampoo for example

    7.5% SLES active 
    2.5% CAPB active
    Water
    pH 5 

    How does CAPB contribute in hair conditioning?

    Does it only reduce the negative charge of hair or it has any other conditioning benefit too?

    Answer: not much. CAPB contributes negative conditioning to hair by itself, but it does help to form coacervates with conditioning quats that do condition hair. Polyquaternium-7 comes to mind.
