This cold-mix formula features a natural gum thickener - Xanthix -- coupled with our cationic conditioner GuarSilk. These two products work synergistically to increase viscosity and provide conditioning. Two ultramild surfactants – Plantapon LGC Sorb and Cocamidopropyl Betaine provide gentle cleansing with good foaming. Silk Amino Acids helps to smooth the cuticle and protect hair from damage. PlantaSol CCG serves to solubilize the essential oils into the formula as well as boost foam.

*Natural gum thickeners are not reliable or efficient in surfactant based systems. There will be a tendency to separate upon standing. Reincorporate by shaking before using. For optimal efficiency and reliability, we recommend using Crothix Liquid or Glucamate LT instead.
