AllyEster is an extremely versatile 100 percent plant-derived personal care ester. A colorless, elegant moisturizer with a fine silky feel, AllyEster is a great additive for delivering shine and moisturization in shampoos, conditioners, lipsticks, and lip balms (with no aftertaste). This multifunctional ester can be a solubilizer and shine enhancer, very similar to silicone. Its refractive index is 1.442-1.446, and AllyEster’s low molecular weight makes it very permeable through the skin. By reducing tackiness, AllyEster is a great solubilizer for oil phase esters, oils, and waxes. This ingredient is a safe and non-irritating replacement for Dimethazone, Isopropyl Palpitate, or Isopropyl Microstate. AllyEster is Certified Organic by QAI.



Soapnut is a natural foaming surfactant that can also be used as a foam booster. Soapnut contains high levels of natural saponins. These saponins have surface active properties, as they contain both water-soluble and fat-soluble components. Soapnut is comparable to and is a natural alternative for Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). This foam boosting and the intrinsic emolliency of Soapnut will enhance any cleansing system.
