Inolex introduces two new ‘next gen’ naturals ingredients
The specialty chemicals ingredients company has expanded its AminoSensyl™ range, a portfolio of next generation conditioning ingredients ideal for the natural products marketplace, to the tune of two new ingredients.

The 100% natural amino acid-based cationic ingredients are called AminoSensyl™ HC and AminoSensyl™ SC, and according to Inolex, they offer the benefits of being petrochemical-free; palm-free; quat-free1; readily biodegradable (OECD 301B); non-GMO; and free from animal testing.

The high performance systems are based on sustainable green chemistry principles, with AminoSensyl HC being suited to hair care applications, while the SC version is aimed at skin care.

“INOLEX continues to be the only source of 100% natural and cationic (quat-free) conditioning agents in the market,” asserts Rocco Burgo, Chief Scientist at INOLEX.

“The AminoSensyl™ range of premium products checks off all the boxes of desired benefits,

including differentiated aesthetics, a safe environmental profile, and 100% naturality for brands seeking to deliver efficacy and sustainability to consumers.”

Ingredients in detail

AminoSensyl HC ​is a pre-neutralized, natural hair care active system that provides higher performance and ease of formulation in hair conditioning & treatment products.

The system contains Brassicyl Valinate Esylate, an amino lipid derived from valine amino acid, which has a non-quat cationic charge for hair substantivity and a better aquatic toxicity profile than traditional conditioning or strengthening cationic surfactants.

AminoSensyl HC delivers significant strengthening, conditioning, smoothness, and definition in hair applications.

AminoSensyl SC​ is a natural formulation system designed for all-natural, luxury skin care products that are gentle to skin and eyes. The patented amino lipid technology enables self-emulsifying formulations that stabilize high oil loads and deliver a soft, velvety aesthetic.

The system combines the primary active cationic structuring agent, Brassicyl Valinate Esylate, with the nonionic structuring agents, Brassica Alcohol and Brassica Glycerides, in an optimized ratio for ease of formulation.

Both systems are optimized to eliminate the learning curve of formulating cationic surfactants as the primary emulsifier, thus providing an easy-to-formulate benefit in finished products.

The following certifications are pending for the AminoSensyl™ range of products, according to Inolex: USDA BioPreferred, COSMOS, and NSF/ANSI 305.
