Guangzhou Monsa Chemical Co.,Ltd.


INCI name: Polyquaternium-10

Polyquaternium-10, commonly called PQ-10 for short, is a polymeric quaternary ammonium compounded with hydroxyethyl cellulose. It is a cationic polymer with excellent compatibility with anionic surfactant systems, which makes it a great ingredient for formulating 2-in-1 conditioning shampoo.

PQ-10 is an excellent anti-static and conditioning agent in various hair care products. It clings to the hair keratin, which is negatively charged after being washed with anionic surfactants and forms a positively charged surface. Such a positively charged surface(a thin film) gives the hair a soft and shiny feel and increases the hair body and suppleness observably.
